Well Shine is the first company in the world to develop technology for mass-producing mushroom chitosan/chitin/β-glucan from the extracted Reishi mushroom and Antrodia Camphorata. We named the extracted material "Well Shine® Biopolymer".

Well Shine Biopolymer is a non-allergenic, clean, and safe material with a traceable Botanical chitosan.

This excellent material can be used in:

  • Cosmetics
  • Supplements
  • Medical devices
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Filtration systems
  • Textiles
  • Biodegradable materials

Eco-Friendly Material from Mushroom Fruiting Bodies

Well Shine Biopolymer

Well Shine Biopolymer utilizes sustainably cultivated Reishi mushroom/Antrodia Camphorata fruiting bodies as raw materials. Unlike chitosan extracted from marine shells, it has a unique source and a patented manufacturing procedure. Possessing special characteristics, it is an eco-friendly polymer material with distinctive properties and reduced chemical usage in extraction.

  1. No risk of shrimp/crab shell protein allergies
  2. Free from pesticide and heavy metal pollution, and avoids the residue of environmental pollutants in the ocean
  3. Can reduce the need for chemicals in extraction and purification processes
  4. Product batches are consistent, and the quality is stable
  5. β-glucan (β-1,3-1,6-glucan) is also found in Well Shine Biopolymer.

Well Shine Biopolymer was approved by the Personal Care Products Council (PCPC) of the United States who issued the INCI name (Beta-Glucan/Chitosan) certificate.

What is Chitin/Chitosan?

Chitosan, also known as chitin, poliglusam, or deacetylchitin, is produced through the deacetylation of chitin. It is a linear polymer compound composed of glucosamine and N-acetylglucosamine, connected by β-1,4 glycosidic bonds. Generally, materials achieving a certain degree of deacetylation and solubility in dilute acid solutions are called chitosan.

Chitin is a natural polysaccharide widely found in the exoskeletons of insects, crustaceans, and the cell walls of fungi. Conversely, chitosan is a transparent, semi-transparent, or white powder solid obtained by partially or completely deacetylating chitin. Unlike chitin, chitosan is soluble in dilute acidic solutions and carries a positive charge.

Due to their unique structures, chitin and chitosan find wide applications in various industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and more.
