VEGELURON ® is often considered as a plant based hyaluronic acid. It is a clear colorless gel with a superior moisturizing and a light film forming effect with a soft touch. It has an extraordinary transparency. The original viscosity is around 16000-20000 mPaS and you can dilute it up to 50% without a significant change in the viscosity.
It is based on a polysaccharide composed of mannose units substituted with xylose and glucuronic acid units. This polymer is extracted from the mushroom Tremella fuciformis, an edible white gelly mushroom (known as snow mushroom).
VEGELURON ® GEL has a superior water retention capacity and is able to efficiently moisturize skin and hair. It is a plant based alternative to hyaluronic acid. Its softness makes it also a natural alternative to silicones.
You can apply VEGELURON ® as it is in an airless or a lotion bottle as a moisturizing serum or apply it into your creams and lotions as well as hair and facial tonics. Blend it simply with a hydrosol of your choice (rosewater for example), you can blend it in a 1:1 ratio with the hydrosol and still have the gel consistency and viscosity. VEGELURON ® is preserved and doesn't need any preservation in the pure form.
