Treatments for cancer, like radiation and chemotherapy, are a harsh assault on the skin's natural balance and moisture level. In addition, other dry skin conditions can leave your skin feeling uncomfortable. Fortunately, The HylaSponge®System in 3Rx Skin Therapy products helps to restore that equilibrium. The HylaSponge®System is an exclusive patented technology developed by the Matrix Biology Institute. The HylaSponge®System, much like a sponge, has the ability to hold 100 times its weight in water, which is what makes the water delivery system to your skin so effective.
Benefits and Advantages:
The HylaSponge®System acts like a “second skin”: it hydrates the skin’s surface layer (stratum corneum) and maintains movement of water, biologically active ingredients, and small water-soluble molecules toward the skin’s deeper layers. The HylaSponge®System continues to retain and deliver water and soluble ingredients even when it feels dry on the skin. HylaSponges are also effective in the delivery of biologically active molecules, such as vitamin C, to the skin.
Moisturizing and Protecting:
The large, water-insoluble HylaSponges hold more water and keep water locked in longer than any other hyaluronan solution alone. Consequently, hydration is greater and longer lasting, thus more effective for skin care. The large molecular weight of hyaluronan connects the sponges and fills the spaces between them, providing greater elasticity to the HylaSponge®System. This extra elasticity assures that formulations containing the HylaSponge®System remain flexible, smooth, non-flaky and highly hydrated for many hours after application.
3Rx Skin Therapy products with the HylaSponge®System Technology have been developed with our partners, Hylaco, LLC, and the creators of the HylaSponge technology, Endre Balazs and Janet Denlinger at the Matrix Biology Institute (MBI).
