Hydrogenated Polydecene

* A synthetic polymer used as an emollient and skin moisturizer

Hydrogenated Polydecene is created when polydecenes are hydrogenated. Polydecenes are non-sticky emollients that create a smooth and silky feeling on skin. They are often used in skin care products because they are easily spreadable and create an even and easy application for creams and lotions (Dermaxime.com).

Research was done over a period of time on people with dry and atrophic skin to see how effective Hydrogenated Polydecene was at moisturizing the skin. After twice daily applications, marked improvement was seen. Further testing was done on 10 people who applied Hydrogenated Polydecene to the crows feet area around the eyes; significant wrinkle reduction was seen.

The Skin Research Institute and AMORE Pacific Corporation in Korea ran another study to measure the efficacy of different combinations of polyols and oils, including Hydrogenated Polydecene. There was measurable improvement of skin condition with combinations of Hydrogenated Polydecene and various polyols.
