Unlocking the Potential of Beta-Glucan in Skincare

In the world of skincare, certain ingredients are hailed as game-changers. One such ingredient that has quietly gained momentum is Beta-Glucan. While it might not be a household name, it's making waves in the dermatological community and for a good reason. Let's delve into the fascinating world of Beta-Glucan and see how it can transform your skin. 

What Is Beta-Glucan?

Beta-Glucan is a natural polysaccharide found in various sources like yeast, bacteria, fungi, seaweed, and grains like oats. This remarkable compound has the power to attract and lock in moisture, making it a driving force for hydration amongst delivering other multiple benefits to the skin. Recognising the potential of Beta-Glucan, LYCON Skin has seamlessly incorporated it into their product range…
