Sodium PCA is a naturally occurring humectant in the skin, partly responsible for the skin’s moisture-binding capacity. It is derived from amino acids and is highly water absorbing. Due to its moisture-binding ability, it is a high performance humectant which increases the skin’s softness when added to products.

Vitamin E

Naturally occurring in plant leaves and skin, Vitamin E helps neutralize skin-damaging free radicals and has soothing moisturizing properties.

Should I choose Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion or this oil free moisturizer? What are the differences?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2013
Best Answer: I have bought the Oil Free Moisturizer and the Oil Free gel cream. I would buy them both......I have the gel moisterizer for the summer, hotter weather where it goes on a bit lighter. I do use the Moisterizer a bit more as it's not that hot where I live and it's a nice big container and priced well!
Good luck :)

Could you explain to me what PCA in Sodium PCA stands for? I have been researching online and I found multiple products for sodium PCA. Thank you.
Rachel boskn on May 18, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not sure exactly myself what the PCA stands for? My husband started using it because it was a good moisturizer but not too greasy for oily skin and I then started using it and love it. I tend towards oily skin but get those super dry areas so I can basically lather it on without feeling over oily.

PCA maybe a good question for the knowledgeable sales associates at a Kiehls store.
