Pullulan, the English name is PULLULAN 

Pullulan polysaccharide in cosmetics, also known as pullulan, is an extracellular pure natural polymer polysaccharide produced by microbial fermentation using starch or sugar as raw material. It has adhesion, adhesion, decomposability, and can It improves physical properties and retains moisture, formability, and spinability.

The main function of pullulan polysaccharide in cosmetics and skin care products is as a film-forming agent. The risk coefficient is 1. It is relatively safe and can be used with confidence. It generally has no effect on pregnant women. The pullulan polysaccharide has no acne-causing properties. Cosmetics are often added as film-forming agents, moisturizers, and antioxidants.

No gelling occurs and the solution is viscous and stable. The viscosity of the solution is the same as that of gum arabic, and it has excellent thickening properties of salt resistance, enzyme resistance, heat resistance, and resistance to changes in pH value. It has strong film-forming properties. The film formed after its aqueous solution is dried on the metal plate has strong gas barrier properties against oxygen and nitrogen. Easily forms water-soluble edible films.

Good compatibility with other water-soluble polymer substances. Used as film former and thickening agent in cosmetics.

The polysaccharide component of pullulan is suitable for four types of skin: firm skin, dry skin, tolerant skin, and non-pigmented skin.

In addition to the previously mentioned functions and properties, pullulan polysaccharide has some other important contents in skin applications:

Protect the skin barrier

The film formed by budding polysaccharide can form a protective layer on the skin surface, helping to prevent the intrusion of external irritating substances, thereby protecting the skin from damage and maintaining the integrity of the skin barrier function.
