Carrington Laboratories Offers Aloe Ingredient

December 9, 2005

Carrington Laboratories, Inc., Irving, TX, offers Hydrapol, a patented polysaccharide composed of an acetylated polydispersed linear mannan that is obtained from organically-grown aloe vera L. The acetylated mannans deliver a boost to the skin’s natural immune system by supporting and optimizing normal Langerhans cell function in the skin, causing the skin to appear more vibrant. They also enhance water absorption/retention of the skin and form a supple protective bio-film at the skin surface. According to company executives, clinical studies have shown the Hydrapol provides a high moisturizing effect and gives an extremely pleasant softness to the skin.
