Pepha™-Protect is a highly purified Watermelon extract with the ability to protect the DNA in skin cells from damage caused by UV-light induced free radicals.

PephaŽ-Protect is a skin protective active containing naturally occurring vitamins, carbohydrates and amino acids such as Citrulline. Under extreme conditions Watermelon plants develop their own defense system by producing Compatible Solutes. These are water soluble molecules, for example amino acids, which penetrate easily into the skin. Compatible Solutes also can naturally occur in the human body. PephaŽ-Protect's synergistic composition is very strong in protecting the DNA of the skin's fibroblasts and keratinocytes. PephaŽ-Protect is a highly concentrated aqueous solution manufactured according to GMP standards.

The skin is increasingly exposed to free radicals. This can be partly explained by the decrease of the protective ozone layer and increased pollution due to our modern lifestyle. As a consequence, damage to the DNA, which can be irreversible, causes the appearance of mutations. The natural regeneration of the cells is reduced due to stress, aging and increasing amount levels of free radicals. PephaŽ-Protect increases the natural defense system of the skin due to the synergistic acting effect of the vitamins, carbohydrates and Citrulline.

Compatible Solutes are able to protect important cell structures such as the DNA from destruction. Such compounds occur in organisms which survive under extreme conditions such as high salt concentration, heat or drought. Watermelon (Citrullus Lanatus) grows in the Kalahari Desert and exhibits high drought tolerances. Exposed to such stress the Melon produces its own defense system which Pentapharm then uses for PephaŽ-Protect. In the Kalahari Desert, Watermelon is still used as a very important water source. The melon used for PephaŽ-Protect is a cultivated plant growing under the same conditions as the wild one. Consequently DSM's highly purified Watermelon extract nourishes the skin by its natural water binding habit.

PephaŽ-Protect is a preventative ingredient of choice to protect the skin against the breakdown of the DNA caused by UV-light and pollution.

I've used Lotioncrafter on a number of occasions, and always found the products to be top quality and good value for money. Jen has always provided great support and helped me to straighten out problems with credit cards and delivery (I live outside the USA). I would recommend Lotioncrafter wholeheartedly to anyone seeking top quality cosmetic ingredients at affordable (and very competitive) prices. Thanks again Jen!

I've just received my third order from Lotioncrafter. Once again, my order was received within days. I could not be more pleased with the quality of their products and the ease of their ordering process. Let me tell, their L-Ascorbic Acid Ultrafine powder is just PHENOMENAL !!! Two other products I am so impressed with are Rosehip Seed Oil & Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil. Top notch quality!! This is my #1 to go place for my diy products.

Thank you

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. :-)
