Well Shine Biopolymer
Lab Results confirm Well Shine's qualities:
Cell viability-enhancing ability
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:
- Medical devices
- Filtration systems
- Biodegradable materials
Well Shine Biopolymer
Eco-Friendly Material from Mushroom Fruiting Bodies
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.
- No risk of shrimp/crab shell protein allergies
- Free from pesticide and heavy metal pollution, and avoids the residue of environmental pollutants in the ocean
- Can reduce the need for chemicals in extraction and purification processes
- Product batches are consistent, and the quality is stable
- 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.
