PhytoGlycogen is a fine white powder with no aroma that is sourced from non GMO sweetcorn. This plant based source is produced through a water based system that has been patented and the resulting product is bio identical to the human glycogen.
Glycogen is a natural component in our bodies. It is used by our muscles as a first choice source of energy and turned into glucose.
In our skin, glycogen is produced in response to stressful situations such as UV exposure from the sun as an emergency response to improve the skin cell’s energy levels.
As we age, the ability of our cells to produce energy decreases. Using PhytoGlycogen in products on the skin gives an efficient energy source to the skin cells for an improved overall skin appearance.
When used in combination with Hyaluronic Acid, PhytoGlycogen hugely increases the efficacy of the Hyaluronic Acid, thus creating a true powerhouse of a product.
It has been dermatologically tested, is non irritating and hypoallergenic. It is also readily biodegradable and non toxic to marine life.
