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.

Our Customers Say...
Lotioncrafter is my favorite place with cosmetic ingredients. I’ve been a regular customer since 2006. Great quality, service, always fast shipping. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Barbara

Best customer service! I forgot an item and they easily updated my order. As a bonus, they got my products into a smaller shipping box and saved me a nice chunk of money. Who would of thought a retailer would go to the trouble of saving their customer money?!? Definitely my new go-to supplier. Honesty and excellent customer service are much appreciated.
Heela

I purchase a 5LBS bucket of Shea Nilotica from Lotion Crafter (my first time ever purchasing off this site). The creamy, buttery, light yellow color of it is amazing!!!! It is super soft, light scented, and looks like vanilla ice cream. I am VERY happy with my purchase,and will certainly purchase again. I use by itself on my skin and mix in my whipped body butters. It isn't grainy at all. 5 STARS!!
