What is Neoglucosamine®?

By now, you’ve probably heard the buzz about AHAs, PHAs and Hyaluronic Acid. Well, it’s time to meet the newest skin brightening ingredient on the market. Neoglucosamine® is a superior amino sugar that aids in resurfacing and brightening skin. Just like Hyaluronic Acid boosts hydration, Neoglucosamine® ignites skin brightness. In fact, unlike other skin brighteners, Neoglucosamine® is actually a building block of Hyaluronic Acid that helps renew skin for a fresher, more radiant complexion.

How Does Neoglucosamine® Work?

Every 30 days, you naturally shed your top layer of skin. This is referred to as surface cell turnover. But sometimes, these old skin cells get stuck and that’s when your complexion starts to look dull. But, what exactly is dull skin? Simply put, dull skin is the result of dehydration, uneven tone and texture.

To address this, dullness-fighting Neoglucosamine® works on meeting the three key skin brightening needs:

Resurfacing
Resurfacing
Neoglucosamine® is proven to boost surface cell turnover 10x faster than skin that’s untreated. It accelerates your skin’s renewal process by helping old cells get unstuck.
Tone Evening
Tone Evening
To deliver a more even skin tone and texture, Neoglucosamine® reduces the appearance of dark spots by disrupting your skin pigmentation production.
Hydrating
Hydrating
As a building block of Hyaluronic Acid, Neoglucosamine® is effective in plumping and hydrating skin cells for a luminous complexion.

Plus, Neoglucosamine® is even helpful for the prevention of fine lines!

See for yourself how Neoglucosamine® can reveal brighter, more even skin in just 1 week with new Neutrogena Bright Boost. This multi-tasking collection harnesses the power of Neoglucosamine® to keep your skin hydrated as it sloughs off old, dull cells. Find out how you can fit Bright Boost into your regimen:


Bright Boost Gel Cream
Speed up surface cell turnover with this lightweight, hydrating moisturizer formulated with Neoglucosamine®, PHAs and AHA exfoliants. Apply it twice daily to your face and neck to reveal an instantly luminous, lit-from-within radiance.
Bright Boost Illuminating Serum
Enhance your skin’s tone, texture and clarity with this skin brightening serum enriched with Neoglucosamine® and turmeric extract. Massage 4 to 5 drops daily into your face. Pro tip: Pair with the Gel Cream for 3x the brightening power!
Bright Boost Brightening Moisturizer with SPF
Sun exposure is one of the main causes of dehydrated skin, uneven tone and texture. Apply this broad spectrum sunscreen formulated with Moringa Seed, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Neoglucosamine® before heading out to help you maintain a more even complexion.

Best Practices:

Bright Boost is safe to use with ingredients like AHAs, PHAs and BHAs, but mixing Bright Boost with Retinol may reduce the efficacy of both products. If Retinol products are also in your routine, try to alternate your usage.
