PollushieldTM functional ingredient
CAS. No: Mixture

PollushieldTM offers protection against the damage induced by pollution.

This functional polymer composed of a metal chelating ingredient and a powerful anti-oxidant creates a barrier between the skin and the outside world, protecting it from pollutants, like volatile organic compounds, toxic metals, cigarette smoke, particulate matter, and gases. These pollutants drive the generation of free radicals, and can penetrate and adhere to our skin to increase dryness, wrinkling, and hyperpigmentation, in addition to irritation, clogged pores, and acne. They can adhere to our hair strands to make them appear lifeless and dull. Continued exposure can overwhelm skinís anti-oxidative defenses, leading to oxidative stress, which is responsible for skin damage.

In studies, PollushieldTM was shown to reduce the markers of skin damage, improve anti-oxidative power, decrease lipid peroxides, and decrease the adhesion of micro-particles and metals.

Exposure to metal and oxidative stress can lead to synthesis of the low molecular proteins called metallothioneins, which have metal binding properties. Tests on human skin explants showed the application of 5% PollushieldTM to skin exposed to metals didnít increase these markers, indicating that skin was protected by the ingredient. As well, an in vitro study showed that PollushieldTM adsorbed 74% to 97% metal particles to which skin was exposed.

When exposed to pollution, skin shows a reduced density of epidermal Langerhans cells, which causes a decrease in skinís immunity. Tests on human skin explants showed that skin treated with 5% PollushieldTM then exposed to pollution showed a higher number of these cells as measured by the presence of glycoprotein CD1a. It also demonstrated a decrease in lipid peroxides and an increase in skinís ability to resist oxidative damage.

Tests on skin explants showed skin exposed to pollution suffered from decreased collagen, altered cell morphology, and keratinocyte cell death. Skin treated with 5% PollushieldTM in carboxymethylcellulose did not show any of these problems.

In a study of 21 female volunteers in using 5% PollushieldTM in a lotion, it was demonstrated that skin was visually cleaner as measured by decreased adhesion of microparticles from pollution after one application while outdoors. In a longer study, the anti-oxidant capacity of the subjectsí skin improved, as measured by the the ferric reducing anti-oxidant power (FRAP) method, and the level of lipid peroxides decreased, as measured by the malondialdehyde concentration.

In cleaning products, like facial cleansers or shampoo, it can facilitate removal of particles from the skin and hair.

In leave-on products, it can increase skinís anti-oxidative capacity, create a barrier from pollution, bind to metals, and prevent adhesion of microparticles.

PollushieldTM is suitable for any product that contains water.

So that our staff may enjoy the Labor Day Holiday, Lotioncrafter's offices will be closed on Monday, September 4th. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 5th. During this time, we will not be returning phone calls or email messages. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, September 5th. Orders, emails and phone calls will be handled in the order received, as best we are able. Please expect some delays as we work through the holiday backlog! We also cannot guarantee changes to orders will be seen before orders have shipped, those that we do catch, will be held back to adjust, which will mean a shipping delay. We appreciate your understanding. Have a safe and happy Labor Day!

I'm really impressed with your speed in packaging and shipping my order. I got a ship-confirmed email within 2 hours of ordering and received the order the next day! Other vendors I patronized days earlier did not ship my order for several days and their shipping charges were so high too. Thanks!
B.

I have been ordering from your company for some time now. I absolutely love the quality and prices of your products. Plus, you don't sacrifice on quality. I am very happy to count myself as one of your customers and I will be ordering from you for years to come. Thank you so much Lotioncrafter!!
Tracy Carlin

Amazing! I ordered my items a week ago and got the items delivered to the UK on time. I wish your website stock a wide range of facial peels. I am a customer for life because you make shopping online so easy. Keep up the good work. I love your ultra fine L-ascorbic acid and use it every day in my creams.
Evelyn Agbasonu

To be late sometimes is expected. Things happen in business. I probably wouldn't do a review in that case. A company that was always extremely late, I'd probably do a negative review on. This is just the opposite...they are more often than not...even faster than I expect. They also cater to those who seek more natural formulations.
