ISP Vincience has introduced an antiaging rice extract with moisturizing benefits. Aquarize IS (INCI: Water (aqua) (and) butylene glycol (and) Oryza sativa (rice) extract) is an active ingredient that reportedly provides both short- and long-term hydration to the skin.
According to the company, the active provides "in and out" hydration across skin's different layers. The extract stimulates the synthesis of filaggrin, a protein involved in the structural integrity of the stratum corneum, therefore reinforcing the barrier function of skin, promoting collagen synthesis and increasing skin suppleness and firmness.
The material is said to increase synthesis of collagen I and collagen III, the major components of the extracellular matrix that support the epidermis. This increase of collagen and synthesis of filaggrin are said to contribute to better skin moisturization. For more information, visit www.ispcorp.com.
