Polyglucuronic acid, also known as glucuronic acid, is a carboxylic acid derived from glucose. It is formed by the enzymatic conversion of glucose into glucuronic acid.

Here are its main benefits:
  • Hydration: Polyglucuronic acid has a higher moisture-binding ability than some other moisturizing ingredients. It forms a protective film on the skin that prevents water loss, thus promoting long-lasting and deep hydration. It keeps the skin soft, supple and hydrated.
  • Brightening Skin Tone: Polyglucuronic acid brightens skin tone and reduces the appearance of dark spots, age spots and hyperpigmentation. It inhibits the production of melanin, which is responsible for skin color, contributing to a more even and luminous complexion.
  • Antioxidant effect: Polyglucuronic acid has antioxidant properties, which means it can help protect the skin against free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage skin cells and contribute to premature aging. The antioxidant effect of polyglucuronic acid helps prevent this damage and maintain healthier, younger-looking skin.
  • Improved skin texture: Polyglucuronic acid improves skin texture by promoting gentle exfoliation. It helps remove dead skin cells, reveals smoother, more radiant skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
