Sodium DNA is an ingredient with activity at the cellular level. This fact has led to its incorporation in numerous high-end antiaging skin care products. An explanation of that activity and results of several tests of one sodium DNA material are presented in this article.
The slow, inevitable skin aging process is characterized by a progressive degeneration of the skin tissue as well as by a variety of attendant visible changes in the skin surface. The skin acquires a new appearance as wrinkles form and become increasingly conspicuous, the epidermal layer thins, and the skin decreases in firmness and elasticity. These changes show the passage from youth to adulthood to old age.
Regardless of the protection and repair mechanism involved, cell proliferation after contact with DNA-Na takes place, and the tested active principle proved in vivo to have a multipurpose activity in improving the appearance of age signs. This activity is related not only to improved water coordination but also to increased cohesiveness of superficial skin layers, as demonstrated by the improvement of skin thickness and elasticity.
