Alban Muller's Glucohyami GL (INCI: Glycerin (and) Water (Aqua) (and) Cichorium Intybus (Chicory) Root Extract) is a liquid ingredient from chicory root that boosts hyaluronic acid synthesis thanks to its content of natural glucosamine. The ingredient improves skin appearance by reducing wrinkles and fine lines and firming the skin.
According to Alban Muller, Glucohyami GL is a 100% naturally originating and eco-responsible alternative to conventional glucosamine of animal or synthetic origin. The chicory root is naturally enriched in glucosamine through an extraction and concentration process.
Alban Muller tested the efficiency of Glucohyami GL in a clinical study of 22 women under dermatological control, whereby the ingredient was observed to reduce wrinkles and increase skin firmness. Additionally, in an in vitro test, the active was found to stimulate hyaluronic acid synthesis by fibroblasts versus pure glucosamine.
Glucohyami GL is suggested for anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products, intense moisturizing care, and plumping and firming products. Specific applications include: hyaluronic acid booster serum; shine-enhancing nutritional shampoo; eye and lip plumping cream; re-densifying night cream; firming body lotion; retexturizing gel cream; firming multi-action spray; lifting capsules; hydrating mist; and more.
