INCI: Isohexadecane (and) BIS-PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone & Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer & Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer & Cyclopentasiloxane (and) Sodium Hyaluronate & Xanthan Gum &Tripeptide-1 Phenoxyethanol
Hilurlip® redefines, plumps and minimizes fine vertical lines of the lips. Small particles of Sodium Hyaluronate are processed to enhance penetration and efficacy, producing a long-term volume boosting effect on the lips and an anti-aging action on the thin tissue. It also acts against the effects of outside pollution.
Due to the absence of a keratinized stratum corneum, moisture rapidly evaporates from the lips, causing them to dry out very easily. In addition, unprotected lips are especially dehydrated because of the sun, and they are continually exposed to environmental aggressions (e.g. cigarette smoke). All these factors result in lips requiring more moisturization, protection and care than the rest of one's skin.
Hilurlip® is a new way of vehiculization of Hyaluronic acid, especially for lip boosting products. It is an oil suspension containing particles of Sodium Hyaluronate, submitted to a technological process after which the particle size is reduced and homogenized to enhance penetration and efficacy. The small particles of Hyaluronan contained in Hilurlip™ swell when they are in contact with skin water, producing a long-term boosting effect on the lips.
Hilurlip® also contains the tripeptide GHK, a well-known RCS scavenger, which protects the lips against the harmful effects of sun exposure. GHK is able to inhibit glycation therefore preventing the loss of collagen elasticity, and to protect skin cells from photodamage.
- Increases lip volume, producing a long-term plumping effect on the lips.
- Enhances moisturization of lip skin.
- Protects lips' skin from environmental aggression like sun exposure and cigarette smoke, preventing premature aging of the lips.
- The oily basis of Hilurlip™ helps to lubricate the lips.
Hilurlip® can be incorporated into water-free lip care formulations, including glosses and balms (not recommended for lipsticks or other stick-based lip balm products). Simply add it to your favorite lip balm formulation and package in lip balm pots!
