Yes! You can use both products at the same time. If you are taking the capsules, they activate your internal immune response. On the skin, the Beta Glucan Cream acts more like a barrier and also has wound healing properties.
The cream molecule joins together on the skin’s surface to produce a thin, invisible film, enhancing the natural barrier and defending the delicate skin underneath from daily environmental stressors. This improves the natural barrier in addition to preventing damage and repairing skin. It has been discovered that beta glucan functions in the skin as a humectant, locking in moisture and preventing moisture loss as well as plumping the skin and making it feel more supple.
They are completely safe and effective when used together!
When it comes to open cuts or wounds, this should be treated a bit differently. Do not apply to deep puncture wounds, and wait until the wound begins to granulate over before applying the cream. After a cut is stitched up and not open, it would be fine to apply a small amount to aid in advancing the skin’s health and healing.
During the various stages of testing and manufacturing, the temperature is higher than what would be expected during extremely hot shipping conditions. When heated, the cream may flow like a thick lotion. However, once the jar returns to room temperature, it will re-thicken to its original viscosity without any issues, and the ingredients will remain fully viable.
There are many factors that play into having the feeling Beta Glucan Replenishment Cream is causing the skin to feel dry.
For example, the moisture that hyaluronic acid attracts comes from our external environment. It pulls moisture from the air and draws it into the skin to provide the hydration it needs. The downside to this is that when humidity levels are low (meaning there is a lack of moisture in the air), no matter what your skin type is, it can quickly become very dry and dehydrated under these circumstances.
Our cream also may provide mild exfoliation since we included glycolic acid and other fruit extracts. This may be disguised as "dryness" but ultimately this helps renew and replenish the skin over time.
Some User Tips:
Wash your face without alcohol-containing cleansers. These cleansers can be harsh on the skin and can increase dryness. After washing, gently pat your skin dry.
Keep application simple. Resist layering on too many products and do not over-apply Beta Glucan Replenishment Cream. More is not better. One tap of the finger is sufficient for the whole cheek area.
Hydrate yourself by drinking plenty of water. It is vital to drink plenty of water daily for many different health reasons, but this is especially true when it comes to hydrating the skin for those in dry climates.
Avoid conditions that can further dry out your skin. Long-term exposure to air conditioning, central heating, and hot showers can cause the skin to dry out.
Get plenty of EFAs in your diet. Essential fatty acids are not just another “anti-aging” ingredient, nor do they simply moisturize. In fact, a deficiency in essential fatty acids can significantly affect the function as well as the appearance of the skin. EFA deficiency can cause excessively dry skin, scaly/flaky/cracking/peeling skin, and/or thick calluses.
The short answer is, No. Beta Glucan Replenishment Cream is completely natural and Non-GMO, made with the highest quality ingredients, which render optimal results.
However, in some cases, our ingredients must undergo extracting and processing to get them in a more purified state. Sodium hyaluronate, for example, is derived from bacterial fermentation. In the case of fermentation, a specific bacteria is purified and precipitated. Sodium Hyaluronate Cross Polymer is a modified form of skin-replenishing hyaluronic acid attached to a polymer structure that keeps it within the skin's uppermost layers longer, allowing for enhanced hydration.
You might compare the purification of our beta glucan ingredient “extracted” from the cell walls of yeast. Just like you could not rub yeast on your face to get the effects of our glucan on the skin, you could not rub the non-purified bacteria on the skin to get the benefits of hyaluronic acid.
Yes, it is likely the glycolic acid and some of the other fruit extracts may provide mild exfoliating. People's skin can vary, but over time, the skin will become tolerant, and dead/dying skin will give way to newer, fresher-looking skin with consistent use of Beta Glucan Replenishment Cream.

Beta Glucan is not a word that typically comes up in casual conversation so it is widely unknown. However, over the past 15 years it has gained traction since it has become commercially available at an affordable price. In Chinese and Japanese medicine, Beta Glucan is something that’s been used for decades. In Western regions, like the United States, we’re just now catching up, so to speak.
No, there are no known side effects pertaining to our Beta Glucan. There have been numerous safe human and animal studies showing the safety of Beta Glucan. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given our Beta Glucan GRAS rating, which means Generally Recognized as Safe under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. This certification is extremely hard to achieve especially when it comes to a dietary supplement.

However, there extremely inferior baker’s yeast beta glucan products on the market. The most important aspect of our Beta Glucan is the patented purification process developed by creator, AJ Lanigan. Each “batch” of our product has to meet the minimum 85% purity standard, which truly sets it apart from all competition.
There are many different sources of beta glucan like mushrooms, oats, and barley. However, clinical studies show very clearly that baker’s yeast Beta Glucan is the most biologically active. In addition, our baker’s yeast derived Beta Glucan is the purest on the market, which allows consumers to safely achieve a doubled immune response. This is why our company elects to carry just one immune system product due to its unmatched purity and effectiveness.
