Abstract

PatcH2O™, BASF’s skin moisturizer, is based on highly developed liquid patch technology for the controlled release of moisturizing factors. Its unique combination of pullulan, alginate, and hyaluronic acid, forms a molecular network that acts as a protective film and reduces water evaporation on the skin’s surface. The micromesh contains a complex made up of glycerin, L-serine, trehalose, and urea. These natural moisturizing factors are gradually released into the upper layer of the epidermis – the stratum corneum – rebalancing its moisture levels. The ‘anti-thirst’ ingredient’s efficacy has been demonstrated in various in-vitro and in-vivo studies.


 

 The secret to beautiful, bright, luscious, and healthy skin lies in its hydration levels. Dry, dehydrated skin is a very common problem in modern life, affecting people of all ages, and it is characterized by increased skin roughness and tightness, fine lines, as well as discomfort and a lack of suppleness. A primary objective in skincare is to ensure the upper layer of the epidermis - the stratum corneum - remains optimally hydrated. This, in turn, allows the skin to retain its flexibility and smoothness for as long as possible, while preserving its youthful appearance.
