Sytheon Obtains a New US Patent

US Patent: 10,568,819

Assignee: Sytheon

Title: Skin Enhancing Compositions and Methods

Commercial Product: Synoxyl® AZ (Acetyl Zingerone)

Compositions and methods are described to improve skin appearance by building and defending its function and integrity through reducing up-stream and scavenging down-stream oxidative pathways as well as through recalibrating the expression of genes, proteins, genetic networks and cellular pathways in mammalian skin. Specifically, select aryl alkenones have been found to induce/produce beneficial effects in skin by elevating the skin’s defense against UV- and air pollutant-induced damage and reversing skin photo- and/or chronological damage through up-regulation/stimulation of select genes/proteins, especially those associated with or impacting upon the extracellular matrix (ECM) and the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ); by up-regulating tissue inhibitory metalloproteases; by reducing oxidative stress and inhibiting activity of matrix metalloproteases; and by protecting DNA.
