The cosmetic ingredient booster hyaluronic acid

Innovative anti-aging cosmetic active ingredient derived from chicory root, Glucohyami is an extract whose name comes from two essential anti-aging molecules: glucosamine and hyaluronic acid.
Standardized in maltodextrin, this tested cosmetic ingredient helps to improve hydration, firmness, and cellular renewal of the skin.

The benefits of Glucohyami for the skin

Glucohyami is a biomimetic activator of hyaluronic acid synthesis. Indeed, this cosmetic ingredient is rich in vegetal glucosamine, a molecule naturally present in the body and essential for the production of hyaluronic acid.
Glucohyami allows the skin to restore its optimal production of hyaluronic acid and to recover youth.
This purified dry extract of chicory root represents a vegetal alternative to conventional glucosamine of animal or microbiological origin which can be a , source of allergens and not eco-responsible.

Chicory root optimized for cosmetics

Chicory is mainly grown for its leaves that are eaten in salads. Its root is mainly used for the manufacture of coffee substitute.
Inspired by plant science, Glucohyami is an extract obtained from chicory roots transformed by a biotechnology process adapted to plants. Indeed, chicory root naturally contains glucosamine but in low quantities. This innovative process, developed in collaboration with Nestlé, allows the chicory root, once harvested, to multiply by 100 its production of glucosamine. Glucohyami is then made from this chicory root optimized to obtain a purified dry extract with high added value.

The properties of hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a polymer that is part of the family of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) whose structure comprises D-glucuronic acid and glucosamine, a precursor molecule essential for its synthesis.
Present in the extracellular matrix (ECM) of the skin, hyaluronic acid provides many biological functions including inflammation, tissue renewal and scarring.
