Sodium chondroitin sulfate, let's take a look


  * An anti-inflammatory and conditioning ingredient

  Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate is a derivative of a natural mucopolysaccharide, or a component "found in connective tissue, skin, bone and cartilage together with proteins from the intercellular cells where collagen and elastin are embedded" (SkinCareInnovation.com). It is used as a skin conditioning agent (and sometimes seen in hair products as well) because of its ability to moisturize, heal, and soothe skin with its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reinforce skin’s intercellular matrix, according to CosmeticsCop.com.
