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:

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your cocoa butter. It's less expensive than my other suppliers (when they can get it at all), and I love the way it's so convenient to measure out- no more cutting and getting it all over the place! I will certainly order from you from now on. Thank you!
Amy, (Garden Goddess Bodycare)

I have been a client for a few years now and during this period I have had a chance to use many suppliers. I can state emphatically that no other company comes close to servicing our needs or is as responsive to our requests as Lotioncrafter.
Kudos to Jen and her team
