Local Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for the Skin


by Ted Kalli
 

 

The traditional hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy treatment involves intermittent inhalation of pure oxygen under a pressure greater than one atmosphere. The oxygen environment we live in is considered to be one atmosphere.

 

Oxygen pressure greater than one atmosphere is considered to be hyperbaric. HBO acts both mechanically due to its pressure component (hyperbaric oxygen chamber), and physiologically, due to its oxygen component (inhalation of 100% oxygen).

 

AURA Research's oxygen emulsion is an oil-in-water emulsion of hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide emulsion is a mechanical mechanism.

 

Some of the benefits are:

  • Supplies oxygen and water to skin cells. Oxygen can be measured before and after.

  • After readings show dramatic increase in pO2 (partial pressure of oxygen).

  • Oxygen acts as a vehicle and carries other ingredients with it.

  • Compatible ingredients used that have known benefits to the skin: beta-carotene, alpha tocopherol, ascorbyl palmitate, beta glucan, lactic acid, lactic/glycolic acid liposome, hyaluronic acid, UVA & UVB sunscreens, urea, salicylic acid and ceramides.

  • Dermal irritation studies available.

  • SPF-15 rating according to testing as specified in Federal Register, by independent laboratory.

  • Acts as a local hyperbaric oxygen treatment.

  • Effective against acne (in-vitro testing).

  • Hyperbaric oxygen is known to aid in wound healing.

  • Currently available in the US, only through skin care professionals.

  • Two year shelf life.

  • These products are not currently available in the retail market.
