Humectants are important cosmetic ingredients preventing loss of moisture thereby retaining the skin’s natural moisture. Some compounds also have the ability to actively attract moisture. Xylitol, is a sugar alcohol that occurs widely in nature and it is naturally found in low concentrations in the fibres of many fruits and vegetables and can be extracted from various berries, oats, mushrooms etc as well as fibrous material such as corn husks, sugar cane. Clinical studies show that it can be satisfactorily used in skin care preparations as a humectant.
