Features & Benefits+
Hydro-Matrix Rice PGA helps in restoring the skin’s natural protective barrier properties, enhancing softness and elasticity and improving skin tone and texture by creating a “pocket” designed to hold water and deliver peptides to boost collagen.
Hydro-Matrix Rice PGA is a liquid dermal delivery network which provides optimal water binding capacity. It is prepared from fermentation products including cross-linked hyaluronic acid and polyglutamic acid. This hydro-network is impregnated with natural rice peptides for a multi-collagen stimulatory gene expression. Hydro-Matrix Rice PGA offers unique benefits for anti-aging and moisturizing skin care applications.
Water is absolutely essential for the normal functioning of the skin and especially its outer layer, the stratum corneum. Loss of water from the skin must be carefully regulated, a function dependent on the complex nature of the stratum corneum. Hyaluronic acid, which has been regarded mainly as a dermal component, is also found in the epidermis and is important for maintaining normal stratum corneum structure and epidermal barrier function. Additionally, the elderly have drier skin with less elasticity and more wrinkles. Studies have demonstrated that drier skin shows more wrinkles and deeper furrows, with wider intervals.
Applications & Uses+
Hydro-Matrix Rice PGA can be used in skin care, hair care, and color cosmetic formulations. In emulsions, it can be easily added with medium propeller mixing after phase combination below 45°C during the cooling phase. Hydro-Matrix Rice PGA is not compatible with cationic substances. The ideal pH range for systems containing Hydro-Matrix Rice PGA is between 4.0-8.0. In skin care, Hydro-Matrix Rice PGA is recommended for use in products for enhanced hydration and moisturization of the skin. In hair care, HydroMatrix Rice PGA is recommended for use in leave-on treatment products such as hair masks
