Humectants refer to hygroscopic organic compounds that form hydrogen bonds with water molecules. These can either be derived from natural sources, such as honey, glycerin, aloe vera gel, lactic acid, etc., or synthetically produced. Humectants assist in absorbing moisture from the air and retaining it into the stratum corneum, or the upper layer of the skin. As these compounds also help in making the skin appear and feel soft, supple, hydrated, less flaky and prone to cracking or chaffing, etc., humectants are widely utilized in the manufacturing of beauty and personal care products.
