Spotlight on: super-hydrating cassia angustifolia seed polysaccharide

If you’re a fanatical label-reader like me, you’ve probably encountered this multi-word gem on our Immersed Nourishing Moisturizer and wondered what it does. You may also have wondered, “Does it really need four names?” but that’s a question for another day.

Turns out that cassia angustifolia seed polysaccharide (is such an effective ingredient, it can have as many names as it wants! Much like our beloved hyaluronic acid, this botanical is a whiz at binding moisture to skin, so it gives us long lasting hydration, plumping up fine lines and wrinkles, and leaving skin soft and supple. It’s also occlusive, which means it creates a barrier on the skin, protecting it from moisture loss. Now you’re up to speed on one of our favourite botanicals. Happily, you don’t have to remember its quadruple-barreled name to benefit from its powerful moisturizing magic.
