As an African aquatic plant, papyrus lives with roots immerged by fresh water, and always in the sun. Today it is an endangered species in the Delta of the Nile. Handmade from 2500 B.C., papyrus sheets were the writing medium of the ancient Egypt civilization. Papyrus was both a royal symbol in the Low-Egypt and a symbol of life coming from the primordial waters, as many architectural and ornemental elements show. That species was a god symbol too, the «hathoric» symbol of power (as Hathor is the mother of all Egyptian gods).
Because skin hydration consists in a good balance between water and lipids in epidermis. To keep longer a smoothier and a more supple skin. And a better dehydration-fighter skin.
Maintains water in the epidermis, helps to keep the NMF and lipids quantities in the stratum corneum.
Reinforces the stratum corneum, helps to restore the skin barrier.
Increases the cell regeneration, helps to rebuild the hydrolipidic film.

HydraGeneration Papyrus has a quick action on the water circulating in epidermis by avoiding that it evaporates. In the same time, it restores the hydric circuit thanks to a stimulation of the cell renewal. Besides it contributes to the creation of lipids like free fatty acids, cholesterol, ceramids, etc., elements which are in the stratum corneum of the epidermis and help to keep corneocytes together. Those cells of the strateum corneum play precisely skin barrier part.
Thanks to that better hydrolipidic balance, epidermis limits dryness process and provides a better protection against outside aggressions.
