Estimate 3-minute read

When choosing the best products for your skincare routine, the right ingredients make all the difference. Having active ingredients that not only moisturize and hydrate your skin, but that also work and provide effects on the deeper layers of the skin, is essential if you want to obtain long-lasting results.

The same way you shouldn’t go grocery shopping whilst you are hungry, you also shouldn’t go skincare shopping without having done a little research on the most effective skincare ingredients, that are backed-up by science.

Read more to learn about Beta-glucan, a scientifically proven anti-age ingredient that your skin-care routine can’t miss. Naturalia Beauty’s scientific department have been working on and researching this prodigious active ingredient for the past 40 years, leading the skin-care industry with new Beta glucan discoveries and applications.

You may be seeing Beta-glucan listed in many new skin-care products. But what is Beta-glucan exactly? And most importantly, why do you need it as part of your daily beauty routine? Beta-glucan describes a group of polysaccharides that naturally occur in the cell walls of bacteria, cereals and fungi.

Dr. Giancarlo Folchitto, Scientific Director of Naturalia Sintesi – the brand who created Naturalia Beauty-, whose mission is to fuse scientific evidence and pharmaceutical knowledge to create better skincare solutions, published hi researches on how to slow-down Skin Ageing in 1995, winning the prestigious Atomo d’Oro (Golden Atom) award. 

The study demonstrated that beta-glucans could not only help accelerate healing and protect the skin from environmental damage but, with repeated use, could also help to strengthen those responses.

His research concluded that, when applied, beta-glucan could help to protect the body’s largest organ, the skin, against sun damage, heal wounds in the skin more rapidly, and treat skin infections. When applied to the skin, beta-glucan helps to stimulate new collagen and elastin to form. This, in turn, increases blood supply to the skin, which helps to nourish and hydrate the skin, whilst also helping to increase cellular turnover and remove bacteria.


When applied to the skin, beta-glucans can:

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Help to protect against hyperpigmentation and sun damage.
  • Clear the skin of bacteria, reducing spots and helping to treat acne.
  • Increase collagen and elastin, leading to smoother, more supple skin.
  • Penetrate the skin with hydrating molecules, keeping it soft and supple.
  • Accelerate the healing of wounds and skin trauma.
  • Reduce redness and skin irritation.
  • Provide a protective barrier, reducing pollution and oxidative stress on the skin.

Beta-glucans have the added advantage that they are suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. This led to Naturalia Beauty integrating beta-glucan into a number of their skincare products.
