Active Supporting Natural Moisturizing Factors
Posted: March 25, 2008
Chemisches Laboratorium Dr. Kurt Richter GmbH (CLR) has introduced an active that provides long-lasting moisture to the skin. DayMoist CLR (INCI Not Provided) is a natural active ingredient supporting the natural moisturizing factors (NMF) by arranging a high level of hydration in the stratum corneum.
According to the company, the active has an immediate and long-lasting boosting effect. The company maintains that the single application of a cosmetic formulation containing the active leads to a significant moisturization for at least 24 hours.
The moisturizing properties of the active have been tested by a combination of two in vivo technologies: confocal raman microspectroscopy and corneometry. In vivo confocal raman microspectroscopy provides information about the distribution of molecular components in the skin. It is currently the only method that enables reliable, rapid and non-invasive determination of molecular gradients in the stratum corneum, e.g. water. For more information, visit www.clr-berlin.com.
