Syn-Up Boosts Skin's Resistance


DSM rolls out new products and posters at IFSCC.

Skin with high resilience offers new opportunities to act sustainably against dry skin conditions. The epidermis has a key function in skin resilience and DSM research has shown that urokinase and plasmin, two serine proteases in the epidermis, play a crucial role in the development of good skin resilience. DSM therefore designed Syn-Up, a unique patented synthetic peptide derivative, to restore the skin’s youthful resilience to dry skin conditions. According to DSM, Syn-Up has a great capacity to rebalance urokinase and plasmin. It provides a perceivable defense against dry skin conditions and unpleasant sensations, meaning consumers can have confidence in achieving great looking skin.

According to DSM, Syn-Up:
  • Makes the skin more resilient against stress attacks day-by-day;
  • Prevents real, significant dry skin conditions;
  • Visibly improves dry skin conditions;
  • Impressively reduces of stinging perception; and
  • Significantly promotes of great looking skin.

In addition to a podium presentation, DSM will have five posters on display at the IFSCC Congress. They include:
