Possesses moisturizing properties, promotes the healing of wounds and cuts, has a rejuvenating effect on the skin. Possesses high water-binding ability. Recent studies have shown that glucosamine prevents age pigment formation and N-Acetyl-glucosamine promotes a decrease in levels of melanin in skin cells. It is used as a component of cosmetic care products for dry, loose or aging skin and in anti-inflammatory preparations.
Glucosamine is a monosaccharide unit within the structure of glycoproteins and mucopolysaccharides. It is derived from the chitin of sea animals (shrimps, lobsters or crabs) using deep hydrolysis (depolymerization). Produced in the form of derivatives: N-Acetyl-glucosamine (N-А.g.), glucosamine sulphate (G.s.) and glucosamine hydrochloride (G.h.). They are white fine-grained powders, water-soluble, active component content not less than 90 % and are known as chondroprotectors.
Glucosamine deficiency reduces formation of cartilaginous tissue and hastens its decay. Glucosamine derivatives take part in mucopolysaccharide synthesis, they stimulate the synthesis of glycosamine glycanes and proteoglycanes in the cartilage. Glucosamine application promotes a significant reduction of pain and the improvement of motor activity in the joints, as well as promoting the formation of the mucous membrane; it is also applied in the treatment of ulcers. Glucosamine plays an active role in cartilaginous tissue formation and synovial fluid production, its anti-inflammatory properties and absolute safety allow wide usage of glucosamine derivatives.
