Diglucosyl Gallic Acid 101
Here at Honest we’re all about ingredient transparency and knowing what you’re putting on your skin. So, we’re breaking down some of our fave skincare ingredients. Today, we’re getting to know Diglucosyl Gallic Acid. (Pronounced: die-gluko-sil gal-ick acid. We know, it’s a mouthful.)
What it is
Diglucosyl Gallic Acid is a Gold Medal winning active ingredient that acts as a skin melanoregulator, meaning it regulates the pigmentation of your skin.
How it works
Diglucosyl Gallic Acid interacts with the skin’s natural microbiome through 7 different pathways related to skin pigmentation.
What it does for your skin
When it interacts with your skin through those 7 pathways, you reap benefits like reduced redness + signs of inflammation, brighter skin, smaller pores and less noticeable dark spots. When it comes to brightening, this is the best of the best.
What to pair it with
To give Diglucosyl Gallic Acid’s brightening power a boost, we love to pair it with Vitamin C and/or Artichoke Extract to maximize brightening from all angles + make dull skin a thing of the past.
And that’s the tea on Diglucosyl Gallic Acid. You’re now one step closer to reading that label like a pro and the glowy, radiant skin of your dreams.
