Dermacyte Oxygenating Eye Complex is a lightweight, paraben-free oxygen-carrying serum bolstered by restorative ingredients such as Vitamin C, soothing oat kernel, antioxidants, hydrating sunflower oil and avocado essence. Furthermore, seed extracts from the Pacific and Northeast Meadowfoam plant aid in water loss prevention, a vital component to help overcome the drying effects of winter.
Oxycyte is a sterile, milky white, sub-micron (median diameter of 200-250 nm) perfluorocarbon (PFC) emulsion intended for intravenous injection. It contains two key ingredients, perfluoro(t-butylcyclohexane) and egg yolk phospholipids (an emulsifier), along with several minor ingredients dispersed in water. Research has shown that PFCs can dissolve and release large amounts of gases, including oxygen and carbon dioxide. When formulated and delivered as an intravenous emulsion, PFCs have been shown to enhance the oxygenation of ischemic tissue.
