Hydron Receives Patent

Hydron Technologies Inc. announced it has been granted a U.S. patent for “Compositions and Method for Delivery of Skin Cosmeceuticals,” a self-adjusting emulsion system designed to deliver improved benefits for a variety of cosmetic and pharmaceutical products—including antiaging skin care and sunscreens.

The emulsion system allows for an initial neutral pH of 6.5 to 7 upon application to the skin, then evaporates and self-adjusts to the skin’s natural slightly acidic pH of 4.5 to 5. The company is utilizing this patented system in its branded product line and evaluating the potential of licensing the technology.
