ACETYL GLUCOSAMINE is a product obtained by partial deacetylation of chitin. Chitin mainly comes from the shells of crustaceans, such as shrimps and crabs. This ingredient is relatively safe and is often used as a moisturizer and skin conditioner in cosmetics. Acetylchitosamine is a kind of skin supplement type raw material, it can help reduce the signs of skin aging. Acetyl glucosamine, also called N-acylglucosamine,is a monosaccharide derived from glucose. It has many biological functions, such as participating in the synthesis of hyaluronic acid. In the human body, hyaluronic acid is the main component of extracellular matrix, and it is widely distributed in joints, epithelium, and nerve tissues. Hyaluronic acid is also responsible for maintaining the moisture of the skin, making the skin look hydrated. As a matrix for the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, chitosamine can supplement the skin with hyaluronic acid when the level of hyaluronic acid drops.
