The Fucocert or Fucogel is a polysaccharide, that is to say an assembly of sugars, obtained by biotechnology using vegetable substrates such as corn.
The polysaccharides make it possible to create an adhesive biofilm that protects dehydration. It is this property that retains water and keeps the skin well moisturized throughout the day.
Considered as a reference substance in terms of active moisturizer, it is often compared to hyaluronic acid. It also has a soothing and restructuring effect for the skin and hair.
