Beta glucan is a polysaccharide, or complex sugar, that can be derived from a variety of natural sources, including yeast, fungi, seaweed, and oats. Beta-glucan is known for its many skin benefits, including:
Hydration: Beta-glucan is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains water. This makes it an excellent ingredient for hydrating the skin, especially dry and dehydrated skin.
Soothing: Beta-glucan has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can help to soothe and calm irritated skin. It is also known to promote wound healing.
Barrier protection: Beta-glucan can help to strengthen the skin's barrier function, making it less susceptible to environmental damage.
Anti-aging: Beta-glucan can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and improve skin elasticity. It is thought to do this by stimulating collagen production and protecting the skin from free radical damage.
Beta-glucan is a safe and effective ingredient for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is also non-comedogenic, which means it will not clog pores.
