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:

We've had a ferry breakdown at the Orcas Island dock today (Monday) and this has affected the ability for UPS shipments to leave the island in time to make the connection with UPS departures on the mainland. Expect a ONE day delay on UPS shipments departing Lotioncrafter today. This is an unavoidable delay outside the UPS system. We will update later today.
