Lonza

Solu-Mar® Elastin SD

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.

Technical product information

Key Attributes
  • 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. 
  • The structure of elastin has helices linked through desmosine and iso-desmosine residues (made by condensing lysine residues together
  • It is found throughout marine tissue and its importance is due to its memory which allows a tissue to return to its original position
Preparation

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. These free helical elastin chains (consisting of 10 to 20 amino acids) show flexibility and allow for the formation of 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
