Unites States researchers claim breakthrough with new anti-wrinkle cream

A Bar-Ilan University research team headed by Prof. Rachel Lubart and Prof. Aharon Gedanken from the departments of Chemistry and Physics and the Institute for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) have been involved in the past few years in the development of a technology that allows the production of hyaluronic acid in different-sized particles.

Cosmetician Hava Zingboim licensed the technology and says she has succeeded in creating a “first ever” formula that allows hyaluronic acid to penetrate into the deeper skin layers by means of cream application and without injection. Until now patients looking to fight wrinkles have had the acid injected into their wrinkles.

A key property of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the human body, is its ability to adsorb large quantities of water. Hyaluronic acid is also an effective antioxidant, which means it can trap the free radicals formed in the skin during inflammatory processes or as a result of exposure to UV rays. These properties make it an important anti-aging agent, Bar-Ilan and Zingboim said in a joint statement.

The look of young skin can be measured by the amount of hyaluronic acid between the cells. As we age, our body gradually loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid. The decreasing availability of hyaluronic acid directly results in wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin.

The skin, which plays an important role in protecting our organs, is impenetrable. Finding means to penetrate the skin barrier has challenged the medical field for years, and until now efforts to develop ways to introduce hyaluronic acid into the skin have been unsuccessful, since the acid cannot penetrate it naturally.

An existing powder form of hyaluronic acid with small particles capable of penetrating the skin needs to be dissolved in water first, which causes the acid to lose its small molecular structure and its ability to absorb water. This makes it incapable of penetrating the skin and also it loses its ability to smooth out wrinkles and trap free radicals, the statement said.

Now the researchers say their technology allows the micronization — size reduction — of these molecules and once they reach nano size, the hyaluronic acid molecules are transferred into the formula, which enables them to remain nano-sized throughout the process. To date, this is the only technology in the world capable of creating small molecules that remain small even when applied to the skin, the statement said.

The effect of the micronized hyaluronic acid applied to the skin is “identical to the effect achieved when injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin,” the statement said.

A spokeswoman for Zingboim said the product, called Prophecy, will start marketing in Israel in the next two weeks and globally in September.

    Immediately after I apply this, I already see plumping in my skin. It feels softer and looks smoother. About 15 minutes later, my wrinkles are barely noticeable. This is gentle, does not inflame my skin, It is a great moisturizer on its own, but I always follow up with a sunscreen!

    I notice a huge difference in my skin in the way that it’s tightened and firmed and smoothed out. I am in my 50s and I am surprised at my results because I honestly didn’t expect a cream to be able to smooth out my lines like this. I’d highly recommend.

    I have been able to stop additional lines and wrinkles and aging on my face by using sunscreen and this RELIGIOUSLY. I stopped getting injections and have much healthier looking skin by using this treatment instead. My face feels smoother and my fine lines are plumped up and disappeared.

    This is one of my favorite skincare products. I have been able to stop using some of my expensive and irritating prescriptions because I was getting better results from this treatment!

    Right off the bat, this pump is great! First impressions after my first few uses was that this absorbs quickly and does not irritate at all. No odd smells or sticky residue. Just a light lotion treatment. I use this after my cocktail of serums, but before my moisturizer. This has made the biggest difference in the texture of my skin, reducing fine lines all over my face and around my eyes. This is moisturizing in itself, so sometimes I even go without moisturizer. My skin looks much smoother and healthier.

    This treatment surprised me in a good way! My face is now plumper and just fuller, and my fine lines have improved. I am just so impressed with this treatment and how gentle it is, but how effective it is!

    I love this treatment. The wrinkles in my forehead don’t stick and settle after I am not wrinkling my forehead anymore. This really has eliminated my fine lines on my forehead and the smaller lines around my eyes as well.

    I have been loving and using this for months. It is a beautiful treatment. I apply this in the morning and night. It is extremely lightweight. It completely absorbs and really softens my skin. My skin looks a whole lot more hydrated and lifted. This hydrates on a such a deep level that this is just a gamechanger.

    Since I started using this I have noticed a gradual smoothing of my skin. I have been using for about 4 weeks now, and my skin really glows and feels so velvety right after I put this on. It is been very gentle as well.

    My cheeks and forehead feel notceably smoother and plumper since I started using this treatment. My cheeks actually bounce back when I touch them, which I noticed the other day. I have been very happy with this lotion. It is lightweight and not greasy and has been effective for me! Very good!

    This is amazing. Tightening and firming. Using this in the morning I felt like I added vibrance and life back to my skin. My cheeks and forehead look and feel lifted and smoothed, especially around my eyes.

    The first month I used this, I was amazed at how my skin looked and felt tighter and smoother. It was a noticeable difference. Now into the second month, I am really seeing a big difference in my fine lines on my forehead and around my mouth. Unlike my prescription vitamin A, which I stopped using because it irritated my skin, this isn’t irritating at all. The opposite actually, this is soothing and moisturizing.

    My deeper forehead wrinkles have almost completely gone away since I started using this a few months ago. I have a very expressive face, and the wrinkles on the sides of my forehead are pretty deep. I apply this at least twice a day and I find that it helps fill in those expression lines and they’re not as noticeable. Definitely worth the money, beacuse there’s no way I’ll do injections. I’ll keep using this instead and get the same effects!

    I know this is an anti-wrinkle treatment but it is amazingly moisturizing too! There are days I actually just use this as my moisturizer before I put on sunscreen. It is not greasy at all. It is an easy addition to my skincare routine because it has multiple effects for me. I have noticed my smoother overall face, less wrinkles around my eyes, and just a more illuminated lifted look to my skin.
