SYN®-HYCAN


Loss of skin firmness is one very visible sign of aging. SYN®-HYCAN helps to fight sagging skin by boosting hyaluronan content and increasing the expression of decorin and lumican.

Hyaluronan (HA) plays an important role in the skin. This glucosaminoglycan (GAG) consists of a long sugar chain that can bind up to 1,000 times its weight in water. The excellent moisture-holding property leads to a gel-like framework for collagen, elastin and skin cells. Also important is its ability to act as a filler, which helps provide the skin with mechanical cushioning. SYN®-HYCAN boosts hyaluronan production and allows needle-free HA-based face contour remodeling.

Decorin and lumican are two important proteoglycans of the dermis. Their protein part binds to a collagen fibril while the GAG part acts as a spacer between the fibrils. The result is the formation of thinner collagen fibrils with increased quality and strength.

Both activities of SYN®-HYCAN work nicely together: Fresh hyaluronan and stronger collagen fibrils result in a visible remodeling effect and a firmer skin.

SYN®-HYCAN is a tripeptide which helps to fight skin sagging by boosting hyaluronan production and improving collagen fibrillogenisis. SYN®-HYCAN has a firming and remodeling effect by stimulation of GAG (glycosaminoglycan) biosynthesis. SYN®-HYCAN increases Decorin and Lumican levels for better collagen fibers.

SYN®-HYCAN is a glycerin-based aqueous solution that is both preservative and PEG-free.

I received my certified organic refined Shea butter today and was extremely pleased. I must say that it is the BEST refined butter I have ever used. The texture is creamy and the feel is like silk, absolutely no odor and the feel of your skin is so soft and smooth. It's truly a nourishment. I'm almost speechless on the great quality of this product. I'm ordering 15 more pounds and sure to be back for more. Thank you Lotioncrafter for providing such an amazing product, you have a customer for life.

Out of all online services that I have used before "Lotioncrafters" is the fastest!! I put my order in and an hour later my stuff was ready for shipment. So impressive :-) For me and my DIY lotions and potions I'll only use Lotioncrafters. I'm very happy with the products I received.
