Celox™ is made using chitosan, a natural polymer extracted from the shells of shrimp and crabs.
Chitosan is a polysaccharide (long chain of sugars) and has some very beneficial properties. Chitosan is made up of glucosamine [Read more on glucosamine here] and N-acetyl glucosamine. The chitosan in Celox™ has been reacted to improve many of its properties. The result is a very effective product.
We use a very special grade of Chitosan to make Celox™. It is a highly purified derivative of shrimp shells caught in the pure waters of the Arctic Ocean.
Chitosan is used widely and is in such products as medical bandages, diet aids and some cosmetics. It is an approved food ingredient.
The chitosan used in Celox has been tested on 221 human subjects with suspected hypersensitivity. None of the subjects showed any skin reaction to the chitosan. Eleven of the subjects gave a positive reaction in a standard fish/shrimp prick test but did not react to this highly purified chitosan.
