Maltobionic acid is an antioxidant that has been shown to target naturally-occurring, skin degrading enzymes to help maintain a youthful look. It is a super powered chelator and humectant, protecting skin and attracting moisture for increasing comfort of dehydrated, parched and dry skin. Maltobionic acid is a naturally-derived polyhydroxy bionic acid that was recently discovered to provide topical anti-aging benefits.
