SYN-UP®: Boost the skin’s resilience for confidence in great looking skin

Today we know that skin resilience is all-important. Skin with high resilience offers new opportunities to act sustainably against dry skin conditions. The epidermis has a key function in skin resilience and DSM research has shown that urokinase and plasmin, two serine proteases in the epidermis, play a crucial role in the development of good skin resilience. DSM therefore designed SYN-UP®, a unique patented synthetic peptide derivative, to restore the skin’s youthful resilience to dry skin conditions. More>

SYN®-HYCAN: Firming and remodeling by hyaluronan from within

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in humans. 50% of the body’s HA is in the skin, where it plays a key role in skin structuring. With age, HA in the dermis decreases, causing facial skin to lose volume in key areas, including the cheeks, under the eyes, the jawline and around the mouth. HA fillers counter this process by plumping up these areas and firming the skin. DSM’s long-established cosmetic ingredient SYN®-HYCAN was developed to remodel, lift and volumize facial skin from within by stimulating the body’s own production of hyaluronic acid. More>
