Contipro launches CrossLinked HA, which, when used in a hydrogel at 1% (compared to 1,6 MDa standard HA) increased hydration with 62% after only 1 hour.
This proves its excellent water-holding capacity. It can be used on its own, or as a slow-release, continuous delivery vehicle for other actives, since the pores in the matrix acts as reservoir for the actives. This type of delivery reduces the risk of possible irritation. The CrossLinked HA has higher resistance against degradation by the hyalurosidases in the skin, which means it stays longer on the skin. The powder contains no preservatives and is easy to formulate with.
