Polysaccharides are biopolymers of large biomolecules that generally exist in nature and are composed of monosaccharides linked together. Such structures provide various functions and effects in skin care applications.
Levan has been manufactured by other companies using the fermentation method. However, 10 years of research at Gan Shmuel established the enzymatic production of levan, making it possible to further control the molecular weight of the active ingredient.
The content of levan produced by the fermentation method is 1-2%, while the content of levan in PoLevanS produced by the enzymatic method is 30-35%.
・ECM (extracellular matrix) reconstitution evaluation confirmed that the higher the levan content, the higher the effect of increasing procollagen 1.
