Arch Develops New Active and Natural Foaming Peptide

April 11, 2007

A new natural foaming peptide based on organic amaranth, Amaranth S. is a gluten-free grain offering a high nutritional value and a better amino acid profile than whole milk. It is intended for use in formulations marketed as natural, and is particularly suitable for conditioning and cleansing formulations, where the presence of essential amino acids in the amaranth protein provides a nourishing effect on the skin. Amaranth S is a foam-boosting agent, acting as an organically-based, secondary surfactant to be used in shampoos, gels, cleansers and liquid soaps. Amaranth S can be used as a co-solubilizing agent and has good compatibility with a broad range of cationic, non ionic and anionic surfactants.

DermaFlux is Arch’s new active that controls moisture flux at the cellular level. It was designed to regulate the ability to channel moisture to the areas where it is needed most. The effect is achieved via up-regulation of the key water-channeling protein, Aquaporin-3. DermaFlux also controls water balance within the cellular membrane due to the presence of three key osmolytes and a sugar.

According to in vitro studies, a 1% treatment of DermaFlux keeps cells plump with moisture when compared to untreated control cells during the dehydrated state. Dermaflux responds to the demands of a changing environment by regulating skin’s moisture by helping it hold on to vital water even under the most demanding, dry conditions.
