A skin barrier recovery ingredient from Sinerga, Tri-Solve® uses a combination of an intracellular lipid component (ceramides) and a sugary humectant agent (trehalose) which makes it ideal for restoring the stratum corneum and inhibiting the damage caused by dehydration.
It’s especially good in the wake of increased use of hand sanitiser and as the cold weather draws in, and is particularly beneficial for products that are developed specifically for dry or atopic skin.
Mechanism of Action
Tri-Solve® has the ability to restore the hydrolipidic film. It works by reducing trans epidermal water loss (TEWL), therefore increasing water retention and hydration, through ceramides which form multi-layered lamellar structures with other lipids between cells in the stratum corneum layers, acting as a water modulator and a permeability barrier. Trehalose works by completely suppressing skin dehydration damage.
Tri-Solve® can be used in various applications, including in creams and gels for dry or atopic skins and in skin barrier recovery products. Its key benefits are:
- It provides a triple-action restoration of skin barrier through recovery, strengthening and hydration enhancement
- It increases water retention through reduction of TEWL
- It has long-lasting hydration properties
- The natural skin structure is restored more effectively and quickly through encapsulation system
Test data shows that when compared with a placebo, 2% Tri-Solve® has the ability to increase skin hydration by 40% and reduce TEWL by over 15% in a matter of weeks.
