Undecylenoyl glycine is a lipoaminoacid obtained by the grafting of glycine (naturally found in oat and sunflower proteins) onto an Undecylenic acid resulting in a structure which resembles that of natural lipoaminoacids found in living organisms. Undecylenoyl glycine has broad specrum antimicrobial activity that enhances protection of formulas against microbiological assault and also allows formulation of preservative free products. In addition, it has been shown in studies to help maintain skin’s natural ”acid coat”, regulate sebum levels and inhibit proliferation of acne –causing germs. Undecylenoyl glycine is an excellent skin purifier.
