Chondroitin Sulphate Sodium is a white powder, odourless,
tasteless, hygroscopicity, freely soluble in water and insoluble in
organic solvent such as ethanol, acetone and aether and so on.
Chondroitin Sulphate aqueous solution is instable under high
temperature or acid,deacetylation degrade into monosaccharide or
low molucule weight polysaccharide.
Sodium chondroitin sulfate is a derivative of a natural
mucopolysaccharide, found in connective tissue, skin, bone and
cartilage, together with proteins from the intercellular cells
where collagen and elastin are embedded. It is used as a skin and
hair conditioning agent because of its ability to moisturize, heal,
and soothe skin with its anti-inflammatory properties, and ability
to reinforce skin’s intercellular matrix. It is also thought to be
responsible for the elasticity, resilience and the strength of
skin. The skin’s mucopolysaccharide content decreases with
advancing age; therefore, by replenishment, it would be reasonable
to think that the skin would remain stronger and softer longer.
Used in skin care products, these collagen and elastin-building
properties can be applied topically to the skin and the benefits
can be potentially added from the outside in.
Used in cosmetics, moisturizers, sunscreens, hair conditioning
products, and anti-aging face and skin care products.
