Loss of skin firmness is one very visible sign of aging. SYNŽ-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. SYNŽ-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 SYNŽ-HYCAN work nicely together: Fresh hyaluronan and stronger collagen fibrils result in a visible remodeling effect and a firmer skin.

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

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

I love this company.Not only do they have a great selection, great prices and very reasonable and fast shipping. They gave me a price adjustment that I don't even know I had coming ! Not only did they adjust the price of the item, but they adjusted the shipping charges as well, AFTER I had already received the product !
