The heparan sulphate derived from pig intestines belongs to the family of glycosaminoglycans, water-binding molecules present throughout the body. Heparan sulphate is the sodium salt of sulphated glycosaminoglycans present as a mixture of heterogeneous molecules with different molecular weights. These polysaccharide complexes provide docking sites for numerous protein ligands and receptors involved in various biological processes.
When used as a skin moisturiser, it promotes the immune response to inflammation and the skin cell repair process. Heparan sulphate is readily absorbed into the layers of the skin, replenishing levels reduced by ageing. It helps combat skin damage caused by stress factors, reduces the risk of inflammation and promotes tissue regeneration.
