.: Description :.

Fiflow® products are fully fluorinated Perfluorocarbons, which have a capacity to carry gases, notably Oxygen, Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide. They are inert materials, and they are not oil soluble or water soluble, hence they create a third phase in emulsions. Fiflows are stable, heavy liquids and even the most volatile ones are safe to use as they have no flash point. Fiflows normally contain air, but they can be enriched with other gases such as Oxygen. Products with fiflows need to be packaged in airless packaging. If not, there can be foam formation in the product as there will happen gas exchange between the Fiflow® and the surrounding air. Fiflow® BTX is an ideal ingredient for anti-wrinkle products as it has an instantaneous dermal filling and muscular relaxation effect. It also has long-term effects due to its capacity to supply Oxygen to the skin. Fiflow® BTX has such molecular weight that its penetration is optimized for anti-wrinkle products.
