[ Sacran ]
An agar-like substance extracted from an algae called Suizenjinori which grows exclusively in pure springs of Kumamoto and Fukuoka prefectures of Japan.
[ The research ]
In 2006, JAIST (Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) made the world's first breakthrough in extracting a large amount of agar-like substance called "Sacran" from an edible algae, Suizenjinori, a freshwater photosynthetic microorganism unique to Japan.
[ Moisturising capabilities ]
Sacran's water retention capacity is approximately 6 times that of pure hyaluronic acid (a moisturising agent commonly used in cosmetics), and approximately 10 times that of saline solution (the human body also possess saline).
Furthermore, due to its distinct property characteristics where the viscosity strengthens the moment it comes in contact with the skin, an unique adhering sensation can be enjoyed when applied.
Moreover, Sacran protects the skin cells from external stimulants and allergens by forming a nano-thin barrier on the skin surfaces, which adsorbs the moisture from the skin internals, retaining a thin film of moist layer.
From within the skin, each skin cells are vitalised by the moisturising capability of Sacran enabling moisturising sensation to be perceived
