Pepha®-Tight


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:

Wow, I can't say enough about my experiences with this company.
I have been happy with everything I've ordered and their pricing is very competitive but it is the customer service that sets Lotioncrafter apart from other companies.
Orders are processed and shipped quicker than any other company I've ordered from & each time I've received a refund for lower shipping costs before I even noticed!
Any questions I've had were answered right away & even received a phone call to explain things more personally.
Thank you so much for the great work!
