How did Talsyn-CI originate?

Talsyn-CI originated because of our desire to find a better method for healing wounds and scars. Our research had shown that there was nothing new in this field for many years, and that current products delivered uneven results according to many surgeons. For the main active ingredient, we chose an exotic oil from the South Seas that had proven to be very effective for healing in folk medicine and scientific research. We combined the oil with a special peptide and several support ingredients to produce a comprehensive and clinically proven healing product.

How does Talsyn-CI facilitate healing and improve the appearance, color, and tensile strength of scars?

Talsyn-CI helps healing in several ways. It provides many organic ingredients that have a synergistic effect on the skin. The active ingredients in Talsyn-CI are antioxidants, antihistaminics, and anti-inflammatories, which stimulate healthy collagen synthesis. At the same time, the skin is nourished so that healing continues at an optimum level. These effects help reduce redness and skin rigidity, improve circulation, and ensure proper wound healing and skin regeneration.

How soon can patients expect results?

Typically, a patient will notice effects in 2 to 4 weeks on new incisions, even though we recommended using Talsyn-CI for at least 6 weeks. Improvement on old scars has been seen in 9 to 12 weeks, but it depends on the age and condition of the patient.

What is the FDA status of the product?

This product is in the topical cosmetic classification. As an over-the-counter product, it is not regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration.

What sizes and quantities of the product are available?

Talsyn-CI is available in a 2-ounce (56-gram) tube. We expect to have 20-gram sample packs available in the near future. PSP
