Trehalose is a naturally occurring sugar that is commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products as a humectant, moisturizer, and skin conditioner. It is also used in some food products as a sweetener and stabilizer.
In cosmetics and personal care products, Trehalose helps to hydrate and soothe the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. It is commonly found in products like toners, moisturizers, and serums. Recent studies have shown that Trehalose may help to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
