Silicone gel: the leader in modern scar management

You’ll find silicone gel in the majority of scar treatment products on the market, including Scargenix’sAdvanced Scar Therapy Phase 1. Silicone gel has been used for more than 30 years in the treatment of scars and has been proven in numerous clinical evaluations to be both safe and effective.

Silicone gel works to improve the appearance of scars through multiple mechanisms. Research suggests that silicone gel protects scar tissue from bacterial invasion, increases hydration levels of the newly formed skin, and balances the expression of growth factors. The problem with silicone gel is that it fails to work for over half the people that try it! Knowing this, Scargenix’s Advanced Scar Therapy Phase 1 has been formulated with many more beneficial ingredients that have proven efficacy in healing wounds and reducing the appearance of scars.


Pracaxi oil: the breakthrough ingredient

Pracaxi oil is the breakthrough ingredient in ScargenixAdvanced Scar Therapy Phase 1.Never heard of pracaxi oil? While not many people in the modern world know of pracaxi oil, this ingredient is well known by people of the Amazon rainforest. Natives have used pracaxi oil for centuries as both a medicinal and cosmetic ingredient. It can be used as a hair detangler and softening agent. It is also applied to wounds for its skin healing properties.

Pracaxi oil is the perfect ingredient for a scar treatment product. It is rich in fatty acids that replenish skin with hydration and also help to calm inflammation of the healing wound. Pracaxi oil also serves as a penetration enhancer. A penetration enhancer means the effects of other active ingredients, such as silicone gel, are able to be better absorbed by the skin. Increased absorption allows the ingredients to work more effectively, providing you with even better results.

Additional healthy skin ingredients

In addition to silicone gel and pracaxi oil, the two powerhouses of the Scargenix products, the Advanced Scar Therapy Phase 1 contains many more healthy skin ingredients.

TakePatauá pulp oil, for example. This high-quality oil comes from a very large palm tree,Oenocarpus bataua, that is native to the Amazon rainforest. Like pracaxi oil,patauá pulp oil is an excellent source of fatty acids, such as omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9. It has approximately 80% oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. When oleic acid is applied topically it has been shown to increase moisture levels, leaving the skin soft and smooth. Oleic acid has also been studied for its bactericidal properties. A 2011 publication in theJournal of Microbiology and Biotechnology reported that oleic acid can inhibit growth of a number of Gram-positive bacteria, including MRSA (methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus). Bactericidal properties are especially important in the early phase of scar treatment because healing wounds are susceptible to infection.According to a publication intheJournal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery, bacterial invasion of scar tissue can induce excessive collagen production, which can lead to abnormal scar formation. Thus, thepatauá pulp oil found in Scargenix’sAdvanced Scar Therapy Phase 1 is an excellent ingredient to promote proper wound healing and reduce the likelihood of scar formation.

Another healthy skin ingredient you’ll find in the Scargenix Advanced Scar Therapy Phase 1 isphosphatidylcholine, a type of phospholipid that is a major component of biological membranes. Phosphatidylcholine is a unique phospholipid because of its structure: it has a choline head attached to a chain of essential fatty acids that make up the tail. These structural components allow phosphatidylcholine tomanufacture and repair cell membranes throughout the body, including within the skin.
