Sunburns are often experienced during the summer by millions of people each year. However, most people don’t understand how this may be affecting the future of their skins appearance. When the skin is exposed to excessive UVB rays, it becomes inflamed, or sunburned, and the cells in the dermis don’t produce as much hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a major component of the skin and is involved in tissue repair. This process results in slower tissue repair therefore accelerating the aging process causing skin to lose its moisture therefore contributing to the unwanted aged look.
The skin is made up of three layers: the epidermis (outer layer), the dermis (middle layer) and the subcutaneous tissue (fatty bottom layer). As a person ages all three of these layers go through considerable transformations but the most significant occur in the top two layers. The epidermal cells become thinner causing noticeable differences in transparency and moisture. The dermal layer also thins but this is due to the degradation of collagen and elastin, two of its most important components. The loss of these materials causes skin to lose elasticity causing a wrinkled or saggy appearance.
Another essential portion of the skin is the extracellular matrix. This is primarily composed of proteoglycans which are made up of a protein bonded to a carbohydrate. The most common carbohydrate in this combination is glycosaminoglycan and the most common protein is collagen, which gives the skin firmness and structure. With age comes a disorganization of the extracellular matrix. The collagen protein degrades and disperses and water is allowed to move about more freely. Glycosaminoglycans carry a negative charge which allows them to have a high affinity for water and their structure allows for them to occupy a large volume in relation to their mass. This combination of properties may cause them to retain water and plump efficiently.
One of the most abundant glycosaminoglycans in the skin is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is distributed widely throughout connective, epithelial and neural tissues. It is one of the chief components of the extracellular matrix contributing significantly to cell proliferation and migration.
Hyaluronic acid readily binds moisture in the skin thus boosting moisturization and plumping the surrounding tissues. This characteristic makes hyaluronic acid a widely used ingredient for a variety of skincare products. Injections of hyaluronic acid are commonly given today by plastic surgeons to temporarily fill and smooth wrinkles by adding volume under the skin.
A study was conducted to evaluate the moisturization benefits of FSS CollySyn Hydrolysate HYA PF over a 24 hour period. It concluded that FSS CollaSyn Hydrolysate HYA PF can significantly increase moisturization, when compared to the base lotion, by as much as 41%.
FSS CollaSyn Hydrolysate HYA PF uses a combination of hydrolyzed, synthetic collagen and hyaluronic acid in order to provide powerful benefits to the skin. This complex formula provides moisturizing and plumping effects while simultaneously reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give the skin a more youthful appearance.
FSS CollaSyn Hydrolysate HYA PF utilizes the anti-aging benefits of hydrolyzed, synthetic collagen and hyaluronic acid to plump, condition and moisturize the skin. For these reasons Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen are amongst the most popular ingredients being added to skincare products today.
