Antarcticine® with Salicylic Acid

A Glycoprotein from the Antarctic Sea with cryoprotective, restructuring and antiwrinkle properties.

During the Antarctic summer of 1988, a Spanish scientific expedition collected mud samples from the inlet Admiralty Bay, on King George Island, Antarctica. A new bacterial strain, Pseudoalteromonas Antarctica, was isolated from these samples and characterized. During growth, the bacteria produced an extracellular material, an exopolymer of glycoproteins believed to help the bacteria retain water, adhere to surfaces, and withstand the extreme cold.

Its protective function in nature has been applied in cosmetics by the scientists at Lipotec to regenerate and protect the skin.

Skin Restructuring

In nature, Antarcticine® has the function of protecting the bacteria against harsh conditions. In cosmetics, Antarcticine® maintains its natural bioprotective properties and promotes keratinocyte growth and fibroblast adhesion for a skin regenerating effect and enhanced wound healing.

Anti-Wrinkle Properties

In Vitro Test

An in-vitro skin model composed of keratinocytes and fibroblasts was used to monitor the levels of Collagen I, Collagen IV, and Elastin. The proteins were measured by western blot.

  • Collagen I increased 128% in 15 days
  • Collagen IV increased 81% in 15 days
  • Elastin Levels increased 31% in 15 days

In Vivo Test on Volunteers

Skin topography analyses were performed by obtaining silicon imprints from around the eyes of 10 healthy women volunteers.

The product tested was a cream containing 5% Antarcticine and it was applied twice daily for 30 days.  Analysis of silicon imprints obtained before and after 30 days of treatment indicated the depth of wrinkles decreased an average of 44%, with maximum values between 50 and 60%.

Benefits of Antarcticine®

  • Helps the skin retain water, preventing cutaneous dryness
  • Presents a cryoprotective effect due to its ability to modify the morphology of ice crystals
  • Stimulates fibroblast adhesion and keratinocyte growth, regenerating tissues and enabling a faster healing of wounds
  • Increased collagen type I and IV, as well as elastin, resulting in a restructured skin and a reduction in wrinkles
  • Reduces the depth of wrinkles, especially on the forehead and around the eyes

Our Customers Say...
I order from the UK and can't say what a pleasure it is to buy from you. It's wonderful to have such a good choice of products to choose from too. :-) My parcel always arrives properly processed and well packed. Although I sometimes wait a while for it due to customs - it's always well worth the wait!
Thank you for such an excellent service!

Jen, you have bailed me out a bunch of times because you are so close:).
I never hesitate to tell anyone about Lotioncrafter for lotion formulating and other specialty items.
Your helpful nature and willingness to share knowledge makes you a hands on, person I turn to for my really tough formulating questions.
Thanks for being there Jen!

WOW! How fun to make my own Quality skin care products. I'm financially challenged and I love that I can make a product that sells for $100 for a fraction of that! If you can follow a recipe, than you can follow these instructions.I recommend ordering the scale and paddle mixer, too. They're a time saver. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Deneen

I came to Lotioncrafter after spending years, and thousands of dollars, with several suppliers who did not meet the level of what my business needs. I had to jump from one supplier to another, and so on, in an effort to fill a single order. I've known about Lotioncrafter for several years but erroneously believed their prices to be out of my range. How dumb was that?! In truth, Lotioncrafter, has excellent products, and excellent prices. I've also learned that I can expect, and receive, quality products that, so far, I have not found in other suppliers. I trust Jen to see that I receive products that are as advertised and have the quality my customers expect from me. Thank you, Lotioncrafter and Jen, for being there for me and my customers.
Judith, (Prestige Creations)

I've been swinging my hair all day thanks to the silk amino acid product! This isn't the first time I've had amazing results using it, but I don't always get super shiny and flexible hair immediately after a henna treatment. My hair is shoulder length and relaxed. but I'll be able to postpone my next chemical treatment thanks to the SAA. I'll be ordering the largest size since the shelf life is a year. I'll probably try the argan oil too thanks to someone's review. :-)
