Actique™ NAG is a naturally derived white or almost white powder that works as a active ingredient in a variety of applications. Unlike most animal shell extracted acetyl glucosamine products on the market, Actique™ NAG is completely natural, derived from a unique fermentation process.
Acetyl Glucosamine has been shown to stimulate production of Hyaluronic Acid in skin, improving skin hydration and reducing appearance of wrinkles. It is also effective in anti-hyperpigmentation treatments.¹
This product’s specialty is boosting HA synthesis, generating a greater hydration effect. Actique™ NAG works in perfect synergy with Actique™ Hyal to provide moisture to the skin.
Lastly, this product has added effects of brightening as it works well with Niacinamide to inhibit melanin.
