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.

Pepha®-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. Pepha®-Protect's synergistic composition is very strong in protecting the DNA of the skin's fibroblasts and keratinocytes. Pepha®-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. Pepha®-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 Pepha®-Protect. In the Kalahari Desert, Watermelon is still used as a very important water source. The melon used for Pepha®-Protect is a cultivated plant growing under the same conditions as the wild one. Consequently Pentapharm Ltd's highly purified Watermelon extract nourishes the skin by its natural water binding habit.

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

Incorporation: Pepha®-Protect can be processed either warm (max. 60°C/160°F) or cold, and is incorporated into the aqueous phase of a cosmetic formulation. It is stable over the pH-range of 3 to 6. In formulations, Pepha®-Protect is compatible with ethanol at concentrations of up to 50%.

Our Customers Say...
My favourite place for just about everything! Super speedy, perfect packing, what more can you ask for?
Meaghan

Wow, quality products and SUPER FAST shipping! I ordered this on a Tuesday, and it was shipped THAT day. I received it just two days later. Just wonderful. Thank you so much!
Jessica

Thank you for helping my business grow with quality organic products and outstanding peptides. The results are amazing! Thank you Jen for the pipettes included in this order- it's these small things that make purchasing even more amazing! I'm looking forward to another order again soon!
Kate, (PureRadiance.ca)

I have been ordering from LC for a few months now and I am very pleased with the products. I was especially looking for a good preservative and Optiphen Plus has not disappointed me. I just stared a small lotion business and the preservative is great. I have had no problem. My second go to is the LC E-wax NF, this is a great emulsifier. This has not disappointed me yet. No separation at all in my lotions. Thanks for taking the guess work out of using the correct combination of emulsifiers. I will definitely a repeat customer.
Thanks for helping me in my start up small business. I LOOK FORWARD TO GROWING MY SMALL BUSINESS WITH LC
Wanda, (Maria's Natural Lotion)

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!
