Heparan sulfate is well documented in dermatology, with studies in wound repair, skin infections, atopic
dermatitis, rosacea and psoriasis. As a facilitator of growth factor function, heparan sulfate is essential
for collagen synthesis, and topically applied heparan sulfate penetrates the epidermis and dermis in
humans. Low molecular weight heparan sulfate is found exclusively in the Senté skincare product line.
