What is Rejuran?
Rejuran is made up of polynucleotides (PN) which are DNA fragments extracted and purified from salmon fish. Salmon DNA has excellent biocompatibility with human skin without triggering any immune response, so it is suitable for most people.
Polynucleotides are able to repair damaged skin cells and stimulate collagen production. PDRN (polydeoxyribonucleotide) is a subtype of PN. Rejuran consists of PN, which therefore also includes PDRN.
