Pepha®-Tight is a highly purified biotechnologically produced extract from the microalgae Nannochloropsis oculata combined with a well balanced fraction of polysaccharides. It functions as a skin tightener which provides immediate tightening to the skin. It has been shown to protect human fibroblasts from oxidative stress, simultaneously increasing the formation of collagen-l thereby promoting a long term tightening effect through the strengthening of the skin's connective tissue.

Pepha®-Tight can be used for all skin tightening applications including lifting products, masks, decollete treatments, gels and serums.

Formulation Guidelines:

  • Must be processed cold (<50C/122F) and incorporated in the final phase of a cosmetic formulation
  • The optimal pH range for formulations containing Pepha-Tight is between 5.0 and 7.0
  • Pepha®-Tight is compatible with ethanol at concentrations up to 10%
  • Pepha®-Tight is an opalescent to turbid liquid, so slightly turbid liquid so it's usual to observe a slight turbidity of clouding in aqueous solutions containint this active.  This doesn't influence the activity of Pepha®-Tight in a cosmetic formula.

It is beyond the scope of most manufacturer's to provide an all-inclusive list of materials that may or may not be compatible with any particular ingredient.  However, Pentapharm/DSM offers some information on their actives:

Just wanted to thank you for the excellent service, packages where shipped very quickly and packed well. The service and refund on excess shipping convinced me that Lotioncrafter cares about its customers.

I love Lotioncrafter products. I just ordered the Shea Nilotica Butter for the first time and it is smooth, creamy and amazing. Great for my products! Delivery was quick and I received some extras. I will be ordering more soon. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Sandy Bouie, (The Honey Pot)

I recently received my latest order from Lotioncrafter, quickly as always, even though it is a very busy time of the year. As usual, the products did not disappoint in any way. I must however comment on this Shea Nilotica I purchased. It is the most amazing shea butter I've ever used and I've tried them all. This shea butter is extremely creamy, softer than any others, with very little scent and has absolutely no graininess. It is truly amazing stuff
