Plant Based Gel-Moisturizer + The Anti-aging Konjac Root

Stefanie Juon

Konjac root (Amorphophallus konjac), also known as Elephant Yam is a plant grown in the tropical to subtropical regions of East Asia.

 

It contains about 40% Glucomannan and can expand its volume up to 17 times in water. This helps the skin absorb and retain high levels of moisture, smoothing out wrinkles and keeping the epidermis hydrated and healthy.

 

Konjac root also has natural antibacterial properties, which can help combat oily skin and reduce acne.

 

As a prebiotic, Glucomannan serves as a food source for probiotics and plays an important role in keeping the microbiome balanced, which leads to healthier-looking skin.

 

Konjac is rich in protein, lipids, fatty acids, plus vitamins A, B’s, C, D, & E, and natural minerals such as copper, zinc, magnesium, and iron. It also has antioxidant ability.

 

 

What is a Gel Moisturizer?

A gel moisturizer is a powerful water based hydrator that is extremely light weight, soothing, and refreshing. They are easily absorbable without leaving a film or oily residue, and stay put all day long!

Dr. Juon’s Hydro-Gel Moisturizer formula combines Konjac root with hyaluronic acid for maximum hydration. Because they both swell up, the skin becomes plumper and smoother, and together they act as a natural wrinkle filler. They dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and renew the eyes.
