L-Carnitine USP
CAS No. 541-15-1

L-Carnitine, also referred to as L-Carnitine Base, is a naturally occurring amino acid that is vital for the metabolism of fats in the body.  On skin, with its hygroscopic nature, it has a pronounced moisturizing effect, when added to moisturizing creams and lotions.  As a lower-pH beta hydroxy acid, L-Carnitine exhibits exfoliating properties and the ability to reduce skin turnover time, making it an ideal candidate for reparative exfoliating creams and lotions in which it can either be used alone or in conjunction with other hydroxyacids, i.e. glycolic or lactic acids.

L-Carnitine, given its ability to play a major role in fat breakdown, was first used in cosmetic contouring creams and those targeting cellulite control. Recently, its use is focused on the beneficial effects of L-Carnitine on the skin itself. A study established that L-Carnitine prevents and alleviates deleterious skin conditions such as varicella scarring, wrinkle formation and sunburn peeling.

L-Carnitine is hygroscopic, therefore even small amounts are able to hydrate the skin, leaving it soft, smooth and moisturized. A human test panel using a placebo formulation and one containing 2% L-Carnitine clearly showed an increased skin hydration level of 26.4% for the L-Carnitine formulation compared to 12.5% of the skin treated with a placebo.

Carnitine exists in two forms: L-Carnitine and D-Carnitine.  Only the L-Carnitine form is desirous as the D-Carnitine forms is physiologically inactive and can inhibit the uptake and functions of the natural isomer L-Carnitine. Manufactured by the only company which has a patented biotransformation process that guarantees high purity, our L-Carnitine, also known as L-Carnitine Base,  contains 0% of the D isomer, is approved for food use and has GRAS status.

 

That being said, as packaged by Lotioncrafter, this is a cosmetic raw material and is meant for external use only in cosmetic formulations.  As with all of our materials, it should not be taken internally.

Our Customers Say...
I've been bouncing around between your company and others for products like cyclomethicone, etc. You have won out for a number of reasons. I love everything about your company. One problem; I live in NY. And I'm so anxious to get my products. Nevertheless your shipments are received in a very timely fashion. Thanks for the sample of SheaNilotica. It's fabulous.

I have known Jennifer for many years and she has never steered me wrong. Often when experimenting to find the right product for my eyes I have had to rely on her expertise and not one single time has she not been available to help. You can't go wrong here, thankfully customer service is alive and thriving at Lotioncrafter.
Suzy K.

To be late sometimes is expected. Things happen in business. I probably wouldn't do a review in that case. A company that was always extremely late, I'd probably do a negative review on. This is just the opposite...they are more often than not...even faster than I expect. They also cater to those who seek more natural formulations.
