Hyaluronic acid is a high molecular weight polysaccharide which is naturally found in the human body, mostly in skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water, so that tissues could stay well lubricated and moisturized. For that matter it is often used to treat dry eye symptoms.
It also has viscoelastic properties which helps her to stabilize the tear film and reduce the symptoms of dry eye, especially if dry eyes after waking up, or dry eyes when watching TV or looking at the computer.
Hyaluronic acid also helps in epithelial cell proliferation and healing of eye epithelium.
OCUhyl C contains optimal concentration of hyaluronic acid, so it provides a long-lasting feeling of comfort in eyes but does not cause “blurry vision” so it can be administrated anytime during the day.
Calendula, also known as Marigold, is a plant from the family Asteraceae, native to Mediterranean region of Europe. The plant is used for centuries, both topically and internally, because of his antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Traditionally, marigold is used for treating the dry skin, and healing wounds.
Marigold has a high content of flavonoids – chemical compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties, but it also contains pro vitamin A, which protects the eye surface (cornea), and has proven efficacy in treating dry eye syndrome.
Marigold extract in OCUhylC has a protective, anti-inflammatory and regenerative effect on eye epithelium.
