Solu-Mar Elastin SD is a powder of elastin helices derived from fish skin, which provides an easy way to add marine elastin to skin care emulsions, toners and surfactant systems for body and hair care. Lonza produces its elastin by taking dermal residues (left over from fish scale extraction processes) and subjecting them to an acid/enzyme extraction process which frees the helical chains from their insoluble matrix.
Forms a flexible moisturizing film on the surface of the skin and hair, enhancing suppleness and moisture content, preventing dryness and helping minimize the fine lines typical of dry skin conditions.
