Following a 12-month cosmetic testing programme, Irish health care
provider Alltracel has announced the global launch of a range of
dermal health ingredient solutions for the cosmeceuticals market.

The Phytopeutics ingredient range draws on the company's expertise in wound healing technology and is said to aid collagen promotion, anti-ageing, anti-oxidation, skin hydration and skin repair through topical and oral application. The phytopeutics range of ingredients will be derived from non-genetically modified cotton linters and will use a variety of technologies to aid the specific skin care needs. Specialising in wound, oral and cardiovascular health care, the multi-functional dermal health ingredients range will aid the company's quest to consolidate its position in the personal care market, aimed predominately at skin care formulas. Using internal testing capabilities, the company developed the skin health compounds from its healing and anti-microbial trials undertaken last year. In order to gain full awareness of the skin health benefits of the phytopeutics compounds the company undertook further studies to analyse the mechanisms involved - which allegedly revealed benefits that were previously undiscovered. The ingredients range has been found to benefit many different skin elements using compounds such as the copper, silver, zinc and hydrogen variants - said to treat bodily conditions such as dandruff, body odour and acne due to the demonstration of antimicrobial properties. The combination of compounds was found to increase the quantity of collagen produced by skin cells, with efficacy results allegedly showing that results exceeded other commercial collagen boosters on the market. By activating and stimulating the platelets in the skin, the ingredient is said to be beneficial for skin repair. Similarly it allegedly stimulates the release of leukocyte (white blood cells; macrophages, monocytes and neutrophils) production, which in turn repairs skin at the area of damaged skin. Likewise, the compounds used in the ingredient are said to bind many times their own weight in water, allowing for re-hydration. A quality the company states would be perfect in topical moisturisors. With a study by market research analysts Kline & Company compiled earlier this year showing that the cosmeceutical market was valued at $1bn and with other market analysts stating that the market is expected to double in the next five years, Alltracel has launched the range at a lucrative time in the industry.
