Arabinogalactan is an oligosaccharide consisting of arabinose and galactose monosaccharides. It is a prebiotic balancing skin microbiota.
A natural, gentle, non-irritating ingredient that is easily absorbed into the skin. It prevents natural moisture from evaporating (transepidermal water loss, or TEWL), provides long-lasting moisture, improves the skin's appearance and texture, smooths and treats wrinkles, strengthens the skin's natural barriers, and increases the effectiveness of sunscreen.
Studies showed that Galactoarabinan stimulates dermal fibroblast activity and proliferation enhancing collagen and elastin fibers production and speeding up the wound healing process.
Like other oligosaccharides, Arabinogalactan also decreases trans-dermal water loss and enhances water-binding ability providing volume, smoothing expression lines, and increasing elasticity.
