Water and barrier
homeostasis of the
epidermis is essential for
the normal function of
skin and for normal
stratum corneum (SC)
hydration.
Naturally Derived & Safe Starting Materials
Octanoic acid: Found naturally in coconuts, palm oil, breast
milk and goat milk; Used widely in skin care products as an
ester (Caprylic/capric triglycerides)
Isosorbide: Obtained by double dehydration of sorbitol, a
bio-feedstock; Used widely in skin and personal care
products as-is and as an ether (Dimethyl Isosorbide).

Results & Conclusion
 No product applied after 14 days
 Skin hydration level on 18th day
is superior to continuous 14-day
treatment with 2% Glycerol

Sytheon has designed
Synovea DOI, a patentpending compound, to
address these key issues.

In addition, Synovea
DOI has been found to
improve dermoepidermal architecture
(flattened DEJ 
Undulating structure) as
revealed by the ex-vivo
study using human skin
explants
