TEGO Pep 4-Even
TEGO® Pep 4-Even
TEGO® Pep 4-Even is a new peptide developed to balance skin tone. There are various mechanisms to brighten skin tone, including reducing or inhibiting tyrosinase activity, blocking melanin transfer into keratinocytes, and inhibition of melanocyte activation. It is theorized that TEGO® Pep 4-Even works by reducing the amount of tyrosinase and inhibiting melanocyte activation.
In vivo skin lightening studies have shown TEGO® Pep 4-Even to notably reduce yellow skin tone starting at 4 weeks and fading age spots after 8 weeks. It has been shown to significantly improve the overall appearance after 2 weeks and the evenness of skin tone after 4 weeks. Skin lesion were significantly reduced after 4 weeks of use. According to the manufacturer, its use with Sodium Ascorbly Phosphate, a Vitamin C derivative, has been shown to improve its performance significantly. All studies were performed at a usage rate of the peptide equivalent to 2.5% TEGO® Pep 4-Even in the test formulation.

Preparation of O/W emulsion (cream or lotion): TEGO® Pep 4-Even can either be added during the cooling process at temperatures below 40°C (104°F) or directly to the water phase of the emulsion in cold-process formulations. Then the emulsion is prepared as usual.
Preparation of W/O emulsion (cream or lotion): TEGO® Pep 4-Even can either be added prior to the homogenization at temperatures below 30°C (86°F) or directly to the water phase in cold-process formulations. Then the W/O-emulsion is prepared as usual.
