DermaRx HydroSeal, a bioactive ingredient developed by Applied DNA Sciences, has been incorporated into the fabric of a new line of ‘intimate apparel’.

The company says that advanced market tests are being carried out on the new product line and that consumer responses are being evaluated to verify that the bioactive provides structural moisturization properties to the intimate areas

DermaRx HydroSeal is based on a biofermentation process that developed from the company’s signature DNA Biomaterial Genotyping process.

Targets dry skin

This process helps to target dry skin through a proprietary complex of yeast ferment, soy proteins, and soy petides, which the company claims helps to enhance cohesion between the cells in the upper layers of the skin, restoring elasticity and the skin’s capacity to retain moisture

“Introducing skin care science to the textile industry is a great example of the crosstalk between our proprietary scientific platforms, our commercial entrée and our customer base,”​ said company CEO, Dr. Hayward

“Topical delivery systems enhance the performance of active ingredients on the skin. All garments contact the skin, so what better way to deploy a skin treatment than through a textile?”

Intimate apparel drys skin

Stress from fabric can serve to put friction and pressure on the skin that can lead to a chaffing and drying out of the upper skin cell layer, a problem that is particularly highlighted by fitted intimate apparel

Dr. Hayward believes that the innovative use of this ingredient could lead to new opportunities for the company.

“Key features of this product include the repair of damaged skin and the remodeling and restoration of the skin surface to refine texture and radiance,”​ he added.

“The effect promotes a youthful appearance to the skin and contributes to overall skin health.”
