Perfluorodecalin is a synthetic active, used in skincare to dissolve and deliver oxygen into the skin. A lack of oxygen in the skin can cause unwanted bacteria to populate, for example in conditions like acne and rosacea. Adding extra oxygen into the skin, creates a hostile environment for these anaerobic (oxygen-hating) bacteria to survive.
Perfluorodecalin is a synthetic fluorinated liquid that is used in cosmetics for its unique properties related to oxygen and gas exchange.
Perfluorodecalin offers benefits such as: - Enhances oxygen delivery to the skin, promoting improved skin metabolism and overall skin health. - Acts as an oxygen carrier, helping to increase oxygen levels in the skin and improve skin tissue oxygenation. - Assists in the removal of carbon dioxide and other waste gases from the skin, promoting detoxification. - Helps create a temporary plumping effect on the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
