Wharton Gel Complex

Wharton Gel Complex is a novel cosmetic ingredient with outstanding regenerative properties obtained exclusively from the Wharton jelly found in umbilical cord of animal origin. Wharton Gel Complex is the only cosmetic ingredient comprising different glycosaminoglycans of a natural origin, including among others high grade hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate.

Wharton Gel Complex is an INCI registered cosmetic ingredient.

The first Wharton Gel Complex-based cosmetic products is already in the market since 2014.

Wharton Gel Complex is a unique ingredient with both skin regeneration and protection properties. Wharton Gel Complex recruits and induces the proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes. Wharton Gel Complex stimulates cells to increase the synthesis of a wide range of extracellular matrix proteins including new hyaluronic acid collagen, as wells as key growth factors. Its skin protection activity is based on its antioxidant and moisturizing properties and on its ability to induce the synthesis of protease inhibitors.
