I noticed Serious SKin Care is selling a product with Glucosamine. It's supposed to be for sensitive skin. How does Glucosamine help sensitive skin, or is it just another do-nothing ingredient?

Glucosamine is one of the precursors required for the synthesis of glucosaminoglycans (e.g. hyaluronic acid), which are part of extracellular matrix in the skin and other connective tissues. However, it is unclear whether topical glycosamine increases the skin synthsis of glucosaminoglycans, and, even if it does, whether this results in reduction of wrinkles.

I am not sure it has any special value for sensitive skin.
