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.

Hi, I just wanted to express how happy I am with Lotioncrafter. I have ordered from them three times and this last time I mistakenly put through the wrong shipping address in my order. I called and spoke to Jen and she corrected it immediately. I was very pleased with her efficiency that I had to come in write my own testimonial, something I don't usually do.

The last 2 orders arrived in a timely fashion but this one has taken a little longer because of the memorial day weekend. I knew it was going to be shipped late because on the site, they let the customers know that shipping would be delayed as a result of the holiday. I was very happy with this as well - at least I knew about the possible delay ahead of time.

Thanks Jen for always providing stellar customer service.

I have ordered from LotionCrafters several times and been more than happy each time. Shipping was very fast, the order was perfect each time, and everything was wonderfully well packed - nothing has ever leaked or been damaged in transit. I will order from LC as long as I am making some of my own products - could not be happier with the service, products or company!
