The ingredient Hy is a polysaccharide with a high moisturizing power. This raw material is obtained by fermentation of isolated marine bacteria (Alteromonas macleodii) from the Moorea lagoon in French Polynesia. In this part of the ocean, biomass, called "kopara" in the Polynesian language, synthesizes these characteristic polysaccharides that allow it to survive and proliferate.
The Hy ingredient captures and redistributes water to the skin, but also stimulates lipid synthesis, which helps maintain an optimal skin barrier. The skin is immediately hydrated * and protected against external threats (cold, pollution, friction, etc.).
Development of the hydration rate
*Clinical study of 15 volunteers aged from 20 to 60 years old.
