Synovea® DOI obtains Ecocert Compliance Certification
Synovea® DOI (INCI: Isosorbide Dicaprylate) is obtained by a green chemical process using plant-based raw materials. Origin of the raw materials and process has been reviewed by Ecocert and given a full compliance certification to Synovea® DOI.
Synovea® DOI is a unique and cost-effective product for skin hydration. Two clinical studies have demonstrated excellent long-term moisturization (>48 hrs) effect. Synovea® DOI is very effective because it stimulates endogenous system by up-regulating Aquaporin 3 gene/protein (needed for skin hydration) and tight junction, desmosomes and epidermal differentiation genes/proteins (needed for barrier homeostasis). This product can be used in almost all types of skin care and treatment products. Sensorial benefits of Synovea® DOI can be easily perceived in formulated products. It has a great skin feel – just like silicone, but has nothing to do with silicone.
