Beta Glucan

Home / Ingredient Glossary / Beta Glucan

Beta glucan is a polysaccharide sugar commonly derived from yeast or oats. It has anti-redness, anti-irritant and antioxidant effects and is prized for its wound healing abilities. Beta glucan induces the proliferation and migration of keratinocytes and fibroblasts in the skin—meaning it helps skin repair itself more quickly.1
