NMF (NATURAL MOISTURIZING FACTOR) is mother nature’s own moisturizing “cream”. A complex ingredient naturally present in the skin, NMF keeps the outer layers of the skin protected and well-hydrated. It consists of various amino acids, free fatty acids, triglycerides, urea, ceramides, phospholipids, sodium PCA and many other compounds.
If nothing more, a good skincare product ought to provide skin with additional NMF traces to help to maintain the skin’s elasticity. A balanced level of NMF also activates the hydrolytic enzymes that facilitate natural exfoliation, and supports the barrier function of the skin. In other words, you can never go wrong with NMF!
