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

Incorporation: Add at the end of the emulsion, at cool down, below 40°C (104°F).  Stable over a pH range from 3.0 to 7.5.  When preparing a gel, it should be added to the water phase.

Wow, I can't say enough about my experiences with this company.
I have been happy with everything I've ordered and their pricing is very competitive but it is the customer service that sets Lotioncrafter apart from other companies.
Orders are processed and shipped quicker than any other company I've ordered from & each time I've received a refund for lower shipping costs before I even noticed!
Any questions I've had were answered right away & even received a phone call to explain things more personally.
Thank you so much for the great work!
