Proteins bind to cellular membranes to modulate environmental changes and protect from fluctuations in temperature and osmotic pressure. The original source of anti-freeze proteins was cold-water fish, but now one type has been cloned into baker’s yeast, Saccharonmyces cevevisiae.
Tri-K Industries now offers skin care benefits of the protein to the cosmetics and personal care industry. Studies indicate that Tri-K TMP allows skin to defend itself against environmental pollution and UV rays, in addition to repairing itself after exposure. This multi-functional ingredient improves the overall health and appearance of skin by reducing redness and irritation with an added benefit of moisturization. More info: www.tri-k.com
