Great skin care is all about effective ingredients right? But what if those ingredients cannot reach their targeted area? Great ingredients won’t do much good if they just sit on top of the skin and do not penetrate to the layers beneath. Penetration is crucial, yet it’s a term you won’t hear a lot in the face cream market. Many ingredients can actually inhibit penetration, some even create a barrier between the layers of skin. Examples of barriers include petrolatum, glycerin, paraffin (wax), and mineral oil. It is worth nothing – not all barriers are created equal. Barriers can be okay only if used a few minutes after applying moisturizer and wrinkle reducers. However, it is amazing how many expensive products use these barrier-ingredients in their moisturizing products. These barriers prevent the active ingredients from penetrating to where your skin really needs it — the deepest layer.
The science of Sovaj is about complete penetration with superior ingredients. Our ingredients work together and even enhance each other. Many companies use inexpensive ingredients (see aqua at the top of many) with unpronounceable chemicals that can be quite irritating for a lot of people. They also use barrier ingredients and alcohols to provide texture. Sovaj is purposely formulated to allow the natural ingredients to provide the texture while completely eliminating barrier ingredients. This means the highest quality ingredients are reaching the deepest layer of your skin.
Compared to other products you will notice that our ingredient list is quite short. We have access to every ingredient on the market and we choose these because of their abilities to perform together to the highest level. It is not an accident that they are also ultra hypo-allergenic, and great for people with super sensitive skin. Science and nature in perfect harmony.

When HA penetrates the skin it pulls many other of our ingredients to their target areas. This is where we excel, getting the proper ingredients to their target areas.
