N-Acetyl Glucosamine Benefits For Your Skin

What is N-Acetyl Glucosamine?

N-acetyl glucosamine is a nano peptide naturally extracted from the outer shells of shellfish. Peptide is part of the protein structure that gives your skin strength and elasticity. Clinical studies showed many benefits of n-acetyl glucosamine for the skin from enhancing skin health to diminishing dark spots and signs of ageing.

The Benefits of N-Acetyl Glucosamine For Your Skin

  1. N-acetyl glucosamine boosts your skin's hyaluronic acid production by 107% and reduces inflammation. It significantly improves skin's ability to retain moisture and plumps up the appearance of the skin.
  2. N-acetyl glucosamine reduces facial hyperpigmentation and brightens complexion. Studies showed that it inhibits the melanin production and protects skin cells against free radicals and oxidative stress. The skin brightening effects of n-acetyl glucosamine is further boosted when it is mixed with niacinamide (vitamin B3).
  3. N-acetyl glucosamine reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of ageing. Studies showed that it enhances the skin's ability to renew itself and repair damaged cells.  N-acetyl glucosamine increases the collagen synthesis in the skin by 33%. It strengthens skin matrix and restores the youthfulness of the skin.
  4. Suitable for all skin types. N-acetyl glucosamine is not phototoxic. Unlike retinol, kojic acid, hydroquinone or alpha/beta hydroxy acids; N-acetyl glucosamine doesn't make your skin more sensitive to sun. It is also non-comedogenic.
