- Retains moisture: It is an important humectant, due to the fact that it is extremely water absorbent and can hold several times its weight in water. Helping to reduce loss of moisture, through evaporation.

- Protecting: Previously we’ve talked about the role of the acid mantle and the inter-cellular glue that holds our skin cells together, which can be likened to the mortar that holds bricks together. PCA is an important component of this intracellular matrix, preventing our skin cells from losing water and drying out.
