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.

Jen, you have bailed me out a bunch of times because you are so close:).
I never hesitate to tell anyone about Lotioncrafter for lotion formulating and other specialty items.
Your helpful nature and willingness to share knowledge makes you a hands on, person I turn to for my really tough formulating questions.
Thanks for being there Jen!

I just received the L-Ascorbic Acid now, boy, it melted so quickly. i'm very, very pleased with this product. I wish I'd listened to the testimonials on-line so that my other L-Ascorbic Acid I bought from another retailer wouldn't be wasted. It takes too long before it melts even if its a fine powder. It is good for drinking with beverage as a Vitamin C supplement, but if you use it for facial serum - forget about it because the melting takes forever unless you mix it with hot water, then what's the point of doing it - we all know that Vitamin C oxides with hot temperatures.
So folks, if you want Vitamin C Serum, Lotioncrafter is the best, not to mention about their fast shipping!
