Description: Beta-Glucan M™ also called "Sodium Carboxymethyl Beta-Glucan" is the sodium salt of a carboxymethyl ether of Beta-Glucan. It is commonly used as a binding agent and rheological modifier in personal care formulations. It is known to soothe irritated skin, support the skin’s own antioxidant activity, protect the skin from environmental damage, and help the skin to retain moisture.
Description: Salicylic Acid can be obtained by the bark of willow trees. Capryloyl Salicylic Acid (LHA), or 2-hydroxyl-5-octanoyl benzoic acid is a lipophilized derivative of salicylic acid. The compound has corneolytic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anticomedonic activities.
Description: Nuovo-Proline-16™ is a C16, C16 carboxyl derivative of the amino acid hydroxypro-line. Dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline promotes collagen synthesis and enhances skin tone. Additionally, it is an excellent moisturizer and functions as an anti-oxidant.
Description: NuovoSoft-16™ is a high purity amino acid (C16/C16) waxy amide that can act as a bio-mimetic of a C16 ceramide. NuovoSoft-16 supports the skin barrier function through moisturization while maintaining skin suppleness and elasticity. Ceramide, itself, is one of the main components of the epidermis and forms the bilayer of cell membranes. NuovoSoft-16 will stabilize topical formulations, provide superior moisturization and emolliency. Additionally, it may provide the physiological and cell signaling benefits known for this class of waxy, ’cere’ amides.
Description: Among the well studied, 2-derivatives of stabilized L-Ascorbic Acid, the 2-glucoside (Ascorbyl Glucoside) is preferred by most researchers for post-UV efficacy in antioxidant activity, in Inflammation mitigation, in collagen stimulation and finally for inhibition of melanogenesis. G-Hexuron is the stabilized form of Vitamin C that can be topically applied to the skin in advanced formulations specifically targeted for antiaging and photo-protection benefits. G-Hexuron is the water soluble, Vitamin C, 2-derivative with superior formulation stability. G-Hexuron is both bioavailable and bioactive in its 2-glucoside form and has been shown to be more bio-persistent over time vs. Vitamin C. G-Hexuron is photo-protective, visibly lightens skin and possesses anti-aging properties similar to Vitamin C.
