As a humectant, it attracts moisture to the skin and holds water in the skin, allowing the skin to produce moisture and hydrate from within. Other humectants that you may be familiar with include hyaluronic acid and glycerin. It reduces the risk of dehydration and dryness in the skin from evaporation and prevents natural water loss over time.
