In fact, acacia gum releases a thin rigid layer on the skin which allows it, in the case of creams, to create a tightening effect particularly suitable for combating wrinkles. This film-forming action allows acacia gum to also protect the skin by preventing dehydration. The water will in fact be retained inside the skin, thus being hydrated for longer .


Furthermore, the micropearls that make up acacia gum smooth the most superficial layer of skin, revealing a luminous and uniform complexion.


Finally, acacia gum gives firmness to all types of wrinkles thanks to the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and collagen. The action of acacia gum is therefore able to compensate for the physiological decline in the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, mainly responsible for the firmness of the skin, linked to advancing age.

The result is younger, brighter looking skin.
