Polyenylphosphotidyl choline (PPC)

Polyenylphosphotidyl choline (PPC) is unsurpassed in relieving dry skin. This is because the chief moisturizing agents in skin are phospholipids. When we apply an unsaturated phospholipid like PPC, the moisturizing action is even more effective and powerful than that of the natural phospholipids we find in our skin.

Topical PPC provides the following benefits:
  • Acts a natural moisturizer to provide superior emollient benefits to skin
  • Helps heal dry, chapped and inflamed skin
  • Increases the appearance of a radiant, rosy glow
  • Rapidly moisturizes severely dehydrated skin
  • Helps to improve the appearance of damaged skin
PPC is found naturally in lecithin and has variety of health benefits including promoting brain activity, improving liver function.  It also enhances cognitive function. PPC helps protect the cell plasma membrane.

PPC also helps to deliver other beneficial components such as Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE, vitamin C Ester into the skin, while in use as a combination.
