Pullulan, Nutrier PUL, Cosmetic and Personal Care

Pullulan is a linear polysaccharide polymerized by α-1,4 glycosidic linkage malt triose repeating units through α-1,6 glycosidic bonds, with a molecular weight of 20,000 to 2 million and a degree of polymerization of 100 to 5000. (The molecular weight is about 200,000. It is composed of about 480 maltotrioses).

Scleroglucan, Nutrier SC, Cosmetic and Personal Care Grade

Scleroglucan is a branched polysaccharide produced by a filamentous fungus Sclerotium rolfsii. The primary structure of scleroglucan consist of a backbone of repeating β(1 → 3)-linked glucose residues with approximately every third residue bearing a β(1 → 6)-linked D-glucose branch. This large and complex fungal polysaccharide is soluble in water and is considered a rigid, rod-like, shear thinning β-glucan. In basic solutions, scleroglucan has a tendency to self-associate as a semi-reversible triple helix.
