OPTIM HYAL
TM

Sequence of acetylated glucuronic acids

Function:
Skin smoothing.
Definition:
Obtained by biofermentation,
OPTIM HYAL contains Glycokines,
oligosaccharides of acetylated glucuronic
acids (186 glucuronic acids, acetylation
degree 91%) having a similar structure to
hyaluronic acid fragments.
Properties:
Smoothes out wrinkles.
Moisturises skin surface and depth.
Increases skin suppleness and resistance.
Characteristics:
By stimulating hyaluronic acid neosynthesis
and by sustaining its turnover,
OPTIM HYAL helps deliver optimal
moisturising and viscoelastic properties.
In addition, OPTIM HYAL increases
elastin synthesis.
Points of interest:
Hyaluronic acid half-life is less than one day.
The natural pace of renewal decreases
with age. OPTIM HYAL acts to restore

Applications:
All skin care products for face,
eye contour and body.

In vivo tests - Instrumental evaluation


26 female volunteers, mean age 38, with dry skin and wrinkles, applied twice daily for 2 months a cream containing OPTIM HYAL 3% against placebo.
Single blind studies. Measurements after 1 month and 2 months. The results at 2 months are not presented here and are available on request.

MOISTURE SMOOTHNESS

Superficial hydration (Corneometer).................... +24% vs placebo, p<0.01 Main wrinkles (SILFLO profilometry)
Depth ............................................................. -12.5%, p<0.01 up to -52%
In-depth hydration (MoistureMeter) .................... +12% vs placebo, p<0.01 Density.............................................................. -46%, p<0.01 up to -96%
No significant placebo effect
In just 1 month, OPTIM HYAL moisturises both in depth and on the surface.
With OPTIM HYAL, average density and depth of the main wrinkles are
significantly reduced.
