Synoxyl® AZ

Synoxyl® AZ

Microbiome Friendly 24/7 Prevention & Repair of Skin Damage

Acetyl Zingerone is a multi-targeted antiaging molecule designed to counteract aging before it happens and to reverse key signs of photo-damaged skin. It prevents skin damage and nurtures skin’s own ability to maintain the integrity of the ECM for optimal health and appearance throughout life.

Key attributes:

  1. Omni Antioxidant- scavenges/quenches reactive species & selectively chelates iron – First-in-the Industry
  2. Reduces both immediate & delayed skin damage (↓CPDs) First-in-the Industry
  3. Photochemically stable antioxidant in contrast to many conventional antioxidants
  4. Placebo-controlled clinical studies revealed significant improvement in skin defense & reduction in wrinkle, pigmentation and skin redness in photo-aged skin without using sunscreens
  5. Balances skin microbiome diversity and stimulates skin friendly Staphylococcus epidermidis by >20%.

REACH registered. Patented product.

Synoxyl® AZ thus provides a translational step forward towards development of a more efficacious molecule to treat or prevent the consequences of intrinsic and extrinsic skin aging.
