Breakthrough in Skin Smoothing from DSM

July 5, 2012

SYN-TC is an anti-aging peptide complex.

The DSM Personal Care Business Unit is launching a new breakthrough anti-aging peptide complex SYN-TC. The launch further extends DSM’s successful SYN-Peptides product range, offering an exciting new anti-aging cosmetic ingredient with rapid action for skin smoothing, according to the company.

The beauty of smooth skin is greatly valued by consumers. They seek personal care solutions for the skin that are not only effective but also fast-acting. SYN-TC sets high standards on both counts, delivering results in only 28 days.

The group of naturally occurring proteins known collectively as collagen is the most abundant protein in skin. It is the main component in connective tissue and anchors the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) to the dermis, which in turn protects the body’s subcutaneous tissues. Collagen therefore makes a major contribution to the appearance of the skin, producing the firm and smooth look desired by consumers. Collagen levels in the body naturally decrease with age, however. The use of state-of-the-art skin care ingredients helps to experience the unique role of collagen against the signs of premature skin ageing.

Various types of collagen exist. Skin care products have traditionally focused primarily on collagen I. They use ingredients to stimulate this form of collagen to smooth the skin. Other types of collagen, however – most notably types III, IV, VII, and XVII – also make a major contribution to the functionality of the skin.

SYN-TC makes use of three tailor–made peptides (short polymers of amino acid monomers linked by peptide bonds) to increase in vitro the formation of undamaged, stable and homogenous collagen types in the skin. These best-in-class synthetic peptides have been formulated and combined to achieve a visible benefit for smoother skin and an overall improved young looking skin appearance, according to DSM.

Extended in vivo studies using macro photographs and computer-based 3-dimensional skin imaging have confirmed a visible anti-ageing benefit in only 28 days.

“We are very proud to further extend our leading SYN-Peptides portfolio by the addition of SYN-TC," said Dr. Mathias Gempeler, global marketing manager skin care, DSM Personal Care Business Unit. "It offers a completely new dimension in skin smoothing. This breakthrough product demonstrates yet again DSM’s dedication to deliver innovations to the market that make a visible difference for consumers.”
