A Superb Moisturizer and Powerful Anti-Aging Ingredient
Phytoglycogen is a natural polysaccharide nanoparticle that can be extracted in a monodisperse form from some varieties of non-GMO sweet corn. Being a botanical extract obtained without chemical or enzymatic process, it is environmentally friendly, biodegradable and sustainable. Phytoglycogen has a simple chemical composition â€“ it is a polymer of glucose â€“ but has a complex highly branched dendrimeric physical structure. This structure, combined with its hydrophilic nature, contributes to its many desirable properties including high water retention, high dispersion stability, unique rheological behavior, and the capacity to form films. Together, these properties make phytoglycogen an attractive, natural, multifunctional additive for incorporation into skin formulations.
