Gamma Polyglutamic Acid
Gamma Polyglutamic acid (gamma-PGA) is a natural occurring, multi-functional, and biodegradable biopolymer. It is produced through fermentation by Bacillus subtilis using glutamic acid. PGA consists of glutamic acid monomers crosslinked between α-amino and γ-carboxyl groups, and the molecular weight of PGA we can offer is between 2000Da~2000kDa. It is water-soluble, edible and non-toxic towards human, and is environment friendly. It has broad applications in the fields of cosmetics, food, health-care, and water treatment.
Efficacy of Gamma Polyglutamic Acid
- Long-lasting moisturizing. The moisturizing capacity of Gamma PGA is 10 times better than Hyaluronic Acid; Restoring skin elasticity and smoothing wrinkles.
- Mild Brightening by controlling melanin synthesis to reduce and prevent freckles.
- Synergy with Hyaluronic Acid. It can stabilize and increase HA of the skin by effectively inhibiting the hyaluronidase of skin.
