Tri-K Industries Launches TMP Skin Protectant

January 10, 2007

Tri-K TMP is a type III anti-freeze protein that offers skin protection against daily stress. It provides fortification and protection to the skin against harsh environments and below freezing temperatures.

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:
