Mode Of Action
  • Induction of biological tanning by topical application of active ingredients has long been a big challenge, with unsatisfactory results. DSM have now developed a completely new small cosmetic peptide ingredient, proven to provide exceptional efficacy on human skin after topical application within a cosmetic formulation. Registered significant, visible long-lasting effects, for a healthy glowing appearance.
  • Based on our scientific evidence, SYN® GLOW is proven to activate in vitro the Melanocortin 1 Receptor (MC1R), the master regulator of natural skin pigmentation. From a library of >100 peptides, SYN® GLOW shows the best activation efficacy. MC1R is a very interesting target not only due to its effect on skin tone, but also because MC1R modulates skin's defenses against oxidative stress (normally caused by UV irradiation), and enhances the DNA repair machinery of the cells to fight against UV-induced DNA damage.
