Pullulan, also known as pullulan and pullulan, is an extracellular neutral polysaccharide synthesized by Aureobasidium pullulans through sugar fermentation during its growth. Its molecule takes maltose trisaccharide as the basic unit, and then links the two ends with a-1, 6-glycoside bond to form macromolecule straight-chain polysaccharide, a-1, 4-glycoside bond and a-1, 4-glycoside bond. The ratio of a-1,6-glycoside bond is 2:1. Dry pullulan polysaccharide is a water-soluble white powder. The solution has no gelling effect and is sticky and stable. The pullulan polysaccharide has excellent adhesion, film-forming and oxygen-inhibiting properties, and has unique physicochemical and biochemical properties such as easy natural degradation.
Biological properties, non-toxic and harmless to human body, is a new multi-functional biological product with great application and development value and prospects.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the best moisturizing substance found in nature. It is recognized by international cosmetics industry as the most ideal natural moisturizing factor. However, the limitation of HA preparation method makes its price remain high and it is difficult to meet market demand and find a suitable one. Hyaluronic acid substitutes have always been a research hotspot. In addition, the viscosity of polysaccharides will have a great impact on the activity.
At present, the research on the application of pullulan polysaccharide as a moisturizing effect additive in cosmetics is relatively shallow. In this experiment, the dry pullulan polysaccharide extracted in the laboratory was taken as the research object, and HA and glycerol as the control. The moisture absorption and moisturizing properties of pullulan polysaccharide were studied, and its hygroscopic kinetics and viscosity stability were further studied. The purpose of this experiment was to produce pullulan polysaccharide at low cost in the food industry. And the application of cosmetics industry to provide a theoretical basis.
Pullulan polysaccharide can be used as a substitute for HA in cosmetics because of its similar hygroscopicity, moisture retention and HA. The solution viscosity of Pullulan polysaccharide is less affected by temperature and ion concentration, showing good viscosity stability, and it is stable in a wide range of pH (pH 3-11). Therefore, it can be used as water-holding agent, thickener and stabilizer in food. And in cosmetics as a moisturizing factor to provide a certain theoretical basis.
