Synoxyl AZ exhibits high efficiencies to neutralise all reactive oxygen species
A multifunctional ingredient whose design was inspired by Zingerone from ginger in nature. Synoxyl AZ exhibits high efficiencies to neutralise all reactive oxygen species (ROS) (including 1O2, -OONO and •OH).
This is important since daily exposure to environmental stressors keeps skin under a persistent burden of excess ROS, which drives premature skin aging.
The present article explores the multiple benefits of Acetyl Zingerone, as a single ingredient, to proactively manage excess ROS production in skin via sacrificial (i.e., chemical) and non-sacrificial (i.e., physical) pathways.
The ability of Acetyl Zingerone to neutralize ROS through non-sacrificial pathways provides longer-lasting performance and differentiates it from many conventional antioxidants.
Moreover, AZ is not a pro-oxidant and is photochemically stable in contrast to commonly used antioxidants such as vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Resveratrol.
Synoxyl AZ thus represents a true translational step forward in development of more efficacious molecules to treat or prevent the consequences of intrinsic and extrinsic skin ageing through superior management of excess ROS production.
