Lactobionic acid refers to the acid generated by the replacement of the terminal hydroxyl group on lactose by a carboxyl group. The structure of lactobionic acid has eight groups of hydroxyl water groups, which can capture a large number of water molecules. Lactobionic acid, as the most advanced third-generation fruit acid, does not have the strong irritation of the first-generation fruit acid.
Compared with the second-generation fruit acid, the cleaning power of pores has also been improved. Therefore, regardless of the effect of shrinking pores or mildness, lactobionic acid has the best performance among the fruit acids of all generations.
Lactobionic acid not only captures water from the skin matrix, but also water molecules vaporized at room temperature. The captured water molecules sit in rows and can remain tightly bound for a long time. This property is due to the special chemical structure of lactobionic acid. Lactobionic acid has 8 groups of hydrophilic groups, and its binding force to water is 8 times that of the first generation fruit acid. It can absorb water molecules vaporized in the air, so it has a strong moisturizing ability.
When lactobionic acid acts on the dermis, it can stimulate the proliferation and rearrangement of hyaluronic acid, mucopolysaccharides, collagen and elastic fibers, increase the water content of the skin, and make the skin firm and elastic.
2. Antioxidant and anti-aging
The powerful antioxidant properties of lactobionic acid can chelate ferric ions and protect the integrity of cell membranes from oxidative damage.
It also chelates zinc ions, thereby inhibiting matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) (actually enzymes that break down collagen!), which protects collagen and prevents wrinkles.
It can also grab zinc ions and prevent them from deactivating collagen's nemesis - matrix metalloproteinase MMP, which protects collagen and reduces wrinkles.
In daily life, ultraviolet rays and increasing age can induce the overexpression of matrix metalloproteinases, leading to the excessive degradation of collagen and elastin in the skin dermis that support the skin structure, resulting in wrinkles, sagging and other problems of the skin. Lactobionic acid inhibits the activity of MMPs and has anti-aging effects. Lactobionic acid also has an effect similar to vitamin C, which can prevent aging problems caused by oxidation of cell membranes.
Lactobionic acid has many functions, and it can also play a certain role in tyrosinase. The formation of melanin is that copper ions activate tyrosinase, turning it into melanin.
And if there is lactobionic acid, it will grab copper ions one step ahead, let tyrosinase continue to "sleep", unable to produce melanin, thus playing a whitening effect.
4. Exfoliate aging keratin and brighten skin
In fact, as early as 1974, international physicians published a scientific paper, affirming that fruit acid can soften and remove dead skin cells, while stimulating the proliferation of hyaluronic acid and collagen, making the skin plump and elastic, and pores more delicate.
When lactobionic acid acts on the epidermis, it reduces the aggregation force between keratinocytes, accelerates the shedding of aging keratinocytes, increases the speed of epithelial cell metabolism, promotes skin renewal, and also makes the epithelial cells more tidy, and the stratum corneum becomes smooth and smooth. meticulous.
Lactobionic acid can also make the keratinized plugs around the pores easy to fall off, and unblock the hair follicle tubes, effectively preventing the pores from being blocked.
5. Promotes cell regeneration and repair
Because the structure of lactobionic acid contains a galactose. Galactose is a kind of sugar that exists in the human body. It is a substance that constitutes polysaccharides in pectin and other colloids. It has various effects on the skin, wound recovery, promote collagen formation and cell regeneration, and promote mucopolysaccharide. GAGs bind to proteins as proteoglycans (hyaluronic acid).
6. Light spots
Lactobionic acid can treat hyperpigmentation, including common indications such as liver spots and sunburn, but it is best to use it in combination with a spot remover. Lactobionic acid can exfoliate aging keratin, prevent keratin hyperplasia from blocking pores, and treat acne, epidermal keratin hyperplasia caused by light damage, flat warts and acne scars.
In general, lactobionic acid can promote stratum corneum cell exfoliation, promote skin cell renewal, enhance skin barrier function, promote collagen synthesis, increase dermis thickness, and is safe and non-toxic.
1. First clean your face with facial cleanser, then apply daily toner on your face to moisturise your skin;
2. Then take one to two drops of lactobionic acid stock solution and apply it to the face;
3. Gently massage until absorbed, then use with other lotions or creams, you can use it in the morning and evening;
4. Finally, apply the cream or cream on the face.
Lactobionic acid stock solution contains acidic ingredients, and frequent use can irritate the skin, so it is not suitable for daily use. Lactobionic acid stock solution is used once every 2-3 days.
Lactobionic acid stock solution is also not suitable for dry skin and sensitive skin. After using lactobionic acid stock solution, the skin keratin will fall off, but the stratum corneum will become thinner. At this time, the skin will become more fragile. In severe cases, the skin protective barrier will be damaged, and the external environment will damage the skin, causing the skin to become more sensitive.
