Glycans support Collagen reproduction
Glycosaminoglycans (glycans) are large sugar like molecules that bind with water. The binding action plumps the skin and aids hydration. As the body ages the water binding properties of glycans in the skin reduce, in turn this contributes to a dull & dry appearance.
Glycans also aid in the production of collagen and the transport mechanisms of the skin. The ability of glycans to transport nutrients between the layers of the skin aids its nourishment, regeneration and health.
Natural glycans are extracted from kelp seaweed.
- Marine Glycans are an effective anti-aging compound that induces wrinkle reduction.11
