Unlocking the Power of Beta-Glucan: Skin Moisturization, Barrier Strengthening, and Healing Benefits

Beta-glucan is a polysaccharide that can be derived from various natural sources such as oats, barley, mushrooms, and yeast. In our Dabble Ducky infant products, beta-glucan is used because of its numerous beneficial properties. We use a proprietary version throughout the Dabble Ducky products that we call Beta-Baby.™  

Here's how Beta-Glucan works:
 
Moisturization: Beta-glucan has excellent humectant properties, meaning it attracts and retains moisture. When applied to the skin, it forms a film that helps to prevent water loss, thus providing hydration and maintaining skin moisture levels. This moisturizing effect can help improve skin texture and alleviate dryness.
 
Skin barrier function: Beta-glucan supports the skin's natural barrier function. It forms a protective layer on the skin's surface, helping to strengthen and defend against external stressors, such as pollution and UV radiation. By fortifying the skin barrier, beta-glucan helps to reduce trans-epidermal water loss and protect against environmental damage.
 
Soothing and anti-inflammatory effects: Beta-glucan has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help calm and soothe irritated or sensitive skin. It works by modulating the immune response and reducing the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines. This makes it beneficial for individuals with conditions like eczema, dermatitis, or sunburned skin.


Wound healing: Beta-glucan has been shown to promote wound healing. It stimulates collagen synthesis, which is crucial for repairing damaged skin. Additionally, it helps to enhance the proliferation of fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing collagen and other components of the extracellular matrix.
 
Antioxidant activity: Beta-glucan possesses antioxidant properties, which help to neutralize free radicals that can damage the skin. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can cause oxidative stress, leading to premature aging and skin damage. By scavenging these free radicals, beta-glucan aids in protecting the skin from oxidative damage.
 
Overall, beta-glucan offers several benefits in skin care, including moisturization, strengthening the skin barrier, soothing inflammation, promoting wound healing, and providing antioxidant protection. It is the perfect ingredient for infant care, especially for babies who suffer from skin diseases like eczema, or dry skin.  Dabble Ducky proudly features this ingredient throughout our product line.
