ABOUT CHITOSAN

THE POWER OF
CHITOSAN
Chitosan is a substance that can be found in the hard outer shells of certain crustaceans, which is natural and non-toxic. Chitosan is well-known as a weight loss supplement, as it is extremely fibrous and can absorb unwanted oils.

Chitosan is actually a perfect match for your skin! Chitosan has lots of beneficial effects for the skin, such as its abilities to lock in moisture, to inhibit microbes and to speed up cell regeneration. Increasingly more benefits are being discovered in the application of Chitosan to different areas. CHTTION TM aims to derive products by applying Chitosan to personal care and household products.

LOCKS IN
MOISTURE
When Chitosan is applied to the skin, it forms a film while drying. This film remains on the skin, covering the skin’s surface without cracking. This gives the skin an extra protective layer to lock in moisture. The extra skin hydration Chitosan can provide enables the skin to take on a healthier, plumped up appearance, among its other beneficial properties.

BOOSTS
COLLAGEN
PRODUCTION
Chitosan has also shown to be able to increase the skin’s natural collagen synthesis. Collagen is one of the main structural proteins that gives your skin its firmness and smoothness. Chitosan is able to significantly increase the amount of collagen your skin produces. Improvements are noticeable in terms of firmness, smoothness and skin texture after a few months. The wait will be more than worthwhile!

ALLERGY
PREVENTION
100% BABY FRIENDLY
No evidence has been shown Chitosan would affect those with shellfish allergies. This gentle ingredient can be used by all skin types, even babies. With its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, Chitosan is a valuable addition to our daily routine.

ANTI-MICROBIAL
EFFECTS
Chitosan has long since been known for its anti-microbial effects. Chitosan is able to kill certain microorganisms, such as mould and bacteria. There are a few ways that Chitosan’s anti-microbial effects could benefit your skin:
  • Prevent inflammation and infection
  • Help treat eczema
  • Help treat acne and prevent future breakouts
  • Keep skin clean

WOUND
HEALING
Much attention has been paid to Chitosan-based biomedical materials for their unique properties, such as biodegradability, non-toxicity, anti-bacterial effect and biocompatibility. Chitosan is beneficial to wound healing because it stimulates haemostasis and accelerates tissue regeneration.

ENVIRONMENTAL
FRIENDLY
As mentioned earlier, Chitosan is primarily obtained from the shells of crustaceans. The crustacean shells that Chitosan is derived from are by-products from other industries. The constructive utilisation of those discarded shells makes Chitosan an environmentally-friendly and biodegradable ingredient.
