What does Algeness contain?
Depending on the specific formulation of Algeness, it contains between 1.5 to 2.5% agarose, a polysaccharide polymer that is extracted from red algae, 97 to 98.5% sterile saline, and up to 0.5% non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA).
How is it made?
Agarose is a polysaccharide polymer, a type of sugar, which is extracted from a type of red algae or seaweed. Agarose derives from agar, and is one of two of its principle components. Agarose is purified by removing the other principal component of agar, agaropectin. This is done in a highly specialize factory facility using patented techniques.
