HydraSynol IDL is a stable version of linoleic acid, which imparts the same benefits in addition to others. The ingredient is a blend of diesters originating from isosorbide—obtained from corn—and fatty acids from sunflower seed oil by an environmentally friendly method.
To maintain a healthy barrier function, the ingredient:
- Stimulates multiple genes, proteins and lipids;
- Boosts epidermal hydration by increasing filaggrin; and
- Modulates kallikreins, which are natural exfoliation factors.
An ex vivo study showed HydraSynol IDL acts on dual pathways defend the skin barrier by building antioxidant shield and by inhibiting up-stream pro-inflammatory mediators.
The ingredient will be featured at NYSCC Suppliers’ Day in May 2017.
