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:

Our Customers Say...
First time ordered on 10th October, 2011 and am just loving the information sent on tracking my order from USA to Australia.. well done
Colleen Hagarty, (Jordella)

I received my certified organic refined Shea butter today and was extremely pleased. I must say that it is the BEST refined butter I have ever used. The texture is creamy and the feel is like silk, absolutely no odor and the feel of your skin is so soft and smooth. It's truly a nourishment. I'm almost speechless on the great quality of this product. I'm ordering 15 more pounds and sure to be back for more. Thank you Lotioncrafter for providing such an amazing product, you have a customer for life.
Shalice John, (Skin Commandments)

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!!
Charmaine Pitt, (SuriiShae Naturals)

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
