Functional Keratin ®
SKINCARE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
Improve your market penetration by incorporating these high performing ingredients into your product range.
Cynergy TK™ is a natural bioactive Keratin, which has been demonstrated to be capable of both reversing the effects of aging and also protecting the skin against future damage. Cynergy TK™ consists of a unique biomaterial called “Intermediate Filament Protein”, produced from a unique source of natural New Zealand keratin fiber.
This form of keratin is unlike the “denatured” keratin fragments which are available today as a by-product of the meat processing industry. In today’s cosmetic world, the keratin which is offered in the market for personal care applications is no longer bioactive or particularly functional. Instead it has been “denatured” through a large scale industrial rendering process, which applies both high temperature and acid to by-products such as hooves, horns and feathers. The process renders these fragments inactive to the human body. By comparison, the Keraplast approach involves a patented process, using a gentle method of keratin solubilization. This process is performed on a high value, high quality raw material, which has been specifically selected for the task.
Cynergy TK™ - Cellular Repair and Growth with Collagen Synthesis to Rebuild Skin Structure.
In-Vitro testing has demonstrated clearly that Keraplast’s Functional Keratin® stimulates skin cells to proliferate at a rate of up to 160% greater than that of a placebo. This is an essential first step in the body’s production of structural proteins.
Mechanism of action
Cynergy TK™ promotes the proliferation of skin cells, boosting collagen production
Stimulated skin cells support the natural protein structure improving skin smoothness and helping to bind moisture. This leads to a noticeable improvement in youthful skin properties.
Cynergy TK™ reduces redness associated with inflammation or sensitive skin by reducing PGE2 production, the major biochemical pathway leading to inflammation and redness in the skin.
Cynergy TK™ contains highly potent antioxidants that promote the body’s own natural antioxidant activity and protect against pollution and UV induced radical damage.
