Watch the latest webinar on : PhytoSpherix™: A Natural, Multi-Functional Active to Nourish and Revitalize Your Skin, presented by Mirexus in conjection with Cargill Beauty and UL Prospector Knowledge Centre.
PhytoSpherix™ is a new, multi-functional skincare active composed of exceptionally pure phyto-glycogen. It is obtained using a green, water-based extraction from non-GMO plants and is identical to the glycogen found throughout the tissues of the body. Since glycogen is used to store biochemical energy, PhytoSpherix™ is the ideal food for nourishing skin cells, using it to generate the metabolic energy needed for growth, repair, and the production of extracellular matrix components such as collagen and hyaluronic acid.
