Vitazyme™ A Plus is a complex formed from interactions of polypeptides and retinyl palmitate and delivering vitamin A as a water-dispersible substance. This property promotes absorption and rapid utilization, particularly upon topical application. The protein part of the complex increases substantivity and reduces or eliminates the well-known toxicity of the fat-soluble vitamins that tend to accumulate in the adipose tissues of the body.
A biotechnologically advanced protein complexed delivery system that goes beyond traditional cosmetic vitamins. They are water-dispersible and compatible with many commonly used cosmetic ingredients and should be added to the batch after emulsification is complete and the temperature has been reduced to 40–45°C.
Manufactured by taking natural GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) plant or yeast derived protein substrates which are known for their natural vitamin content.
Enhanced penetration into the skin and hair while providing excellent moisturizing and counter-irritant properties
