Application of heparin sodium in medical field:
Clinical application of heparin sodium, mainly for the treatment of cerebral infarction. After hydrolyzed in vivo, some components of heparin sodium can prolong the coagulation time and can be used as anticoagulant. In addition to its anticoagulant and related antithrombotic effects, heparin sodium can also be used as an adjunctive therapy for myocardial infarction to reduce complications such as thromboembolism. In recent years, it has been found that heparin has biological functions such as inhibiting proliferation, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and anti-virus of smooth muscle cells .
Application of heparin sodium in cosmetics:
Heparin sodium cream is mainly composed of low molecular weight heparin sodium and sodium hyaluronate.
In a 2010 study published in the Chinese Journal of Dermatology and Venology, researchers investigated the efficacy and safety of heparin sodium ointment in the treatment of facial glucocorticoid dermatitis by slow withdrawal and gradual addition of heparin sodium ointment for topical use to control local inflammation and reduce local skin sensitivity. The results showed that heparin sodium ointment can improve local symptoms, promote hormone withdrawal, shorten the course of treatment, improve patients' compliance and improve clinical efficacy.
According to the Heparin Sodium API supplier, Heparin sodium has the following functions:
Increased vascular permeability of the skin; Improve microcirculation; Anti-inflammation, anti-allergy; Promote skin nutrition supply and waste excretion; Good health care and maintenance of the skin. Therefore, the repair function of heparin sodium is the most important.
Heparin sodium is a mucopolysaccharide of animal origin, which cannot be synthesized artificially. It is extracted from the small intestine of pigs and is expensive. It has been used in clinical medicine as an anticoagulant for half a century. Clinically, it is mainly used to treat cerebral infarction. It started with heparin cream to repair the skin and is slowly making its way into cosmetic applications. In recent years, some domestic brands have added heparin sodium to cosmetics, more than some eye cream, in addition to some repair skin care products, related research and application data may be more and more.
