        • Non-oily
        • The Natural Moisturizing Factor in Human Skin.
        • TwinLab Na-PCA is a Ph-balanced, concentrated solution of the sodium salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid, the natural moisturizing factor found in human skin. Na-PCA is synthesized from glutamic acid, a nonessential amino acid. The skin contains natural moisturizers, the most important being Na-PCA.
        • Old skin contains only about half the amount of Na-PCA as that found in young skin. The ability of skin to hold moisture is directly related to its Nz-PCA content. It is water, and not oil, that keeps skin soft and supple. Na-PCA pulls water out of the air, moisturizing the skin, improving its appearance, and giving it a moist and youthful glow. This is not a cosmetic cover up; it is a physiological correction of an age-related deficiency state.

      Directions
      After bath or shower, spray na-pca liberally on the hands and apply to the face and other skin areas. Na-pca may also be used to condition dry or damaged hair. To condition hair... wet hair before using. Apply na-pca and leave on hair for 5 minutes. Then rinse.

      Warning
      For external use only.

        Comments about TwinLab Na-Pca Non-Oily - 8 Fluid Ounces Spray:

        I love the Na-PCa non-oily spray. I have dry, sensitive skin that tends to need good moisturizer in the winter. By "good moisturizer", I mean one that asorbs, moisturizes, and is not too heavy or greasy - which can be probelmatical for my skin.

        I've been taking water aerobics classes -- great exercise that is gentle on older joints that have seen some life, but drying for the skin. After washing off at home, I apply the Na-PCa liberally anywhere I feel dry. I do need help to apply to my back.

        The Na-PCa is in a spray bottle because it is a liquid. The spray would seem a logical way to apply a liquid moisturizer, but it is hard to aim a spray bottle towards oneself - you have to keep the bottle upright and either bend wrist and elbow to get sprayer aimed towards yourself or push with a thumb... all very awkward and WAY too easy to spray the environs instead of one's dry skin. For easier appliation, I've gotten a small pin-point tipped squeeze bottle, and transfer the Na-PCa into that. I find it much easier to get it where I want it w/ out waste using the squeeze bottle.

        My son, who has eczema, prefers the Na-PCa with aloe. I find that the Na-PCa with aloe is a bit more soothing but a bit less moisturizing than the plain Na-PCa. I prefer the plain Na-PCa for its better moisturizing.

          Comments about TwinLab Na-Pca Non-Oily - 8 Fluid Ounces Spray:

          Living in Arizona during the winter months means very dry skin and I don't like the feel of lotion on my body. I have tried many but they leave me feeling greasy and often irritate my skin-even expensive ones. NaPca was recommended to me by someone I trust and so I decided to try it. It relieves the dry, itchy feeling of my arms and legs and now as the weather turns colder and the furnace runs more I use it immediately after my shower on my body and often during the day I re-apply it to my arms. I also apply it before applying hand lotion to my hands for added moisturizing affects. Great product.

              Comments about TwinLab Na-Pca Non-Oily - 8 Fluid Ounces Spray:

              I've used this product for more than 10 years, and I get more compliments on my skin than I can say here. I spray it on my face and throat twice a day, then cover the area with a moisturizer-one with SPF 15+ in the A.M. and without at night. I like that it doesn't dry too quickly, so I don't have to rush to apply anything else. I am 71 years old and NOBODY ever guesses that; they don't have to guess because I don't mind telling my age since the day a NURSE did a double take when she saw my REALAGE on my chart. And, I do tell people who ask about this product.
              Thanks TWINLAB!

                Comments about TwinLab Na-Pca Non-Oily - 8 Fluid Ounces Spray:

                The original (and small incremental revisions) non-aloe Na-PCA product was an outstanding product for 3 decades. I would give it 5 stars. The original product absorbed quickly and never irritated the skin. However, concurrent with the new packaging artwork, there is now a new formulation (you can tell also because there is no monolaurin) and this new formula is less than 1-star. It irritates the skin, does not absorb well and does not moisturize well. If you see this in the old package, buy it before you cannot find it anymore. TwinLab needs to go back to the older formula. I will never buy the garbage this has turned into.

                  Comments about TwinLab Na-Pca Non-Oily - 8 Fluid Ounces Spray:

                  I found this product in a health food store some 30+ years ago...at the time, I liked the moisture content that it gave my skin, but when you're in your early 20's, you tend to try different things, move on...so, about a year ago, now with dry wrinkled skin, I remembered that unique named product I used when I was younger: Na-"something" I remembered the label stood out like a chemistry symbol...and there it was, on the health food shelf, same label (until just recently)...I could'nt believe it!...it had withstood the test of time. It leaves my face moist and if my hands feel dry, I give them a couple of sprays. I prefer the regular to the Aloe Vera, the Aloe Vera is alittle drying to me, it might work better with oily skin as oppose to my dry skin.

                    can reach between my shoulder blades now! the only moisturizer I need on my very dry skin. use it under my moisture cream on face (spray into hand and rub tiny amount on face), and a few times by itself-after swimming, etc-throughout the day. very light amount- not dripping wet. no drawbacks and one bottle lasts me about 6 wks.

                    Comments about TwinLab Na-Pca Non-Oily - 8 Fluid Ounces Spray:

                    As a trained esthetician and senior citizen, moisturizing for older women is a personal concern. NaPCA does a great job, is easy to use, doesn't cause comedones, is non-allergenic. We older women need a lighter touch with our makeup and this product sprayed evenly after we finish removes that "made up" look and gives a fresh, un"made up"look. I keep mine in the fridge for a refreshing touchup on hot days, long days, busy days when I can't otherwise re-do. Use before other moisturizing products. Younger women would also benefit from this. Have used NaPCA for years--when I could find it.

                        This can be used on your body or face but I noticed that if you use it on your face especially, you will notice your face will look smoother and softer within one to two weeks of using it daily, twice a day.

                            I have used this product for many, many years. I use it after my shower on face and body and on face at night after cleansing and spritz during the day. It truly adds moisture to the skin. I love this product and will keep using it for as long as it is produced.
