Chondroitin Sulfate is a compound that is naturally present in the body. It is a derivative of a natural mucopolysaccharide, or a component found in connective tissue, skin, bone and cartilage together with proteins from the intercellular cells where collagen and elastin are embedded.
Mucopolysaccharides are responsible for cell transportation in connective tissue. Chondroitin sulfate derived from mucopolysaccharides heals wounds, aids in skin regeneration, and replenishes the skin leaving its surface stronger and softer.
Chondroitin sulfate has anti-inflammatory properties that work to moisturize, heal, and soothe irritated skin.
Chondroitin sulfate is an amazing conditioning agent. It has a water-binding ability to help lock moisture into the skin. It keeps the skin hydrated and completely moisturized while forming a protective film on the outer surface.
Chondroitin sulfate is popular for its use in managing joint pain. It prevents joint space narrowing, reduces swelling and manages discomfort, especially in the knees or hands.
