CellynkageTM marine ingredient
CAS #7732-18-5, 100843-69-4, 504-63-2, 26264-14-2

Menopause brings many dramatic changes to our skin with increased dryness, thinness, and roughness, as well as a reduction in elasticity and a decline in extracellular matrix proteins like collagen, leading to wrinkles, age spots, and a less uniform complexion. These changes come from a reduction in intercellular communication due to a reduction in hormones like estrogen, and aging.

CellynkageTMmarine ingredient is an exopolysaccharide (polymer of high molecular weight) sourced from Halomonas eurihalina, a microorganism found in a salt marsh in Spain, that helps rejuvenate mature skin by enhancing the direct communication among keratinocytes, and between keratinocytes and fibroblasts, and the signalling exchange between dermal and epidermal cells.

Keratinocytes or skin cells communicate through gap junctions, which connect two cells to allow molecules like ions and small molecules to pass between them. These gap junctions are composed of two hemichannels, or connexons, which are composed of six connexin (Cx) molecules. Gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC) is essential for differentiation, cell growth, and homeostasis. A reduction in these connexins, due in part to a reduction in hormones like estrogen, leads to decreased skin homeostasis, resulting in the changes seen at menopause. The skin’s ability to function properly decreases as the cells become less connected.

Studies have shown that collagen type I and III decrease up to 30% in the first five years of menopause, while another showed that skin thickness decreases by 1.13% and total collagen decreases by 2.1% every menopausal year.

In Vitro:

  • An in vitro study on 54 year old skin showed application of 2% CellynkageTMrestored gene connexin expression to similar values as 39 year old skin. Another in vitro study demonstrated increased connexin proteins through the different layers of the epidermis and increased connexin protein expression comparable to non-menopausal skin.
  • An in vitro study using 5% CellynkageTM demonstrated expanded communication between cells through the gap functions, while another showed an up-regulation of genes responsible for the extracellular matrix and a decrease in the genes responsible for its degradation.
In Vivo:
  • An in vivo study conducted with twenty women aged 50 to 60 asked them to use a control or cream with 2% CellynkageTMtwice a day for 56 days. The results showed an increase in collagen density by 2.4% and an increase in epidermal thickness by 15%. The microrelief structure of skin was measured at 113% as measured by microscopic images of the stratum corneum, and improved uniformity of 7.9% was measured by analysis of digital photographs.

Key Benefits:
  • Rejuvenates mature skin Increase in skin’s smoothness
  • Increase in collagen density and improvement in the extracellular matrix
  • Increase in epidermal thickness, resulting in the decrease in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increase in skin’s organization, leading to a more uniform complexion

So that our staff may enjoy the Labor Day Holiday, Lotioncrafter's offices will be closed on Monday, September 4th. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 5th. During this time, we will not be returning phone calls or email messages. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, September 5th. Orders, emails and phone calls will be handled in the order received, as best we are able. Please expect some delays as we work through the holiday backlog!

Joyce, (Heart and Hand Naturals)

I have been ordering from your company for some time now. I absolutely love the quality and prices of your products. Plus, you don't sacrifice on quality. I am very happy to count myself as one of your customers and I will be ordering from you for years to come. Thank you so much Lotioncrafter!!
Tracy Carlin

My biggest dilemma is that I live in Hawaii and finding reputable and affordable suppliers is near impossible, and once you locate one the shipping is out of this world ($50+ for shipping alone normally); when I found your website I was hopeful. Not only did you have the refined Shea Butter I was looking for, but you had everything else too! And the shipping was VERY affordable. I received my order 1 day sooner than I expected it (and shipping to Hawaii normally takes longer than shipping 'locally' within the continental US). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that you have to offer. I will definitely be ordering again, you have a customer for life!
