Recent discoveries evolving from the studies of skin metabolism and cellular activities have shown that the skin has its own system of nutrition which is based on the same macronutrients - proteins, lipids and carbohydrates - and micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals and trace elements that are involved in general nutrition. While all these essential building blocks are supplied to the skin via the bloodstream, it has been found that they can be supplied and readily utilized following topical application as constituents of skin care products.
Arch Personal Care Products has developed the skin macro-nutrient complex, LactoPro CLP, which is readily assimilated by the dermal structures when formulated in suitable cosmetic vehicles. LactoPro CLP supplies carbohydrates, lipids and proteins combined in their nutritional ratios. All building blocks of the complex are derived from natural organic sources which are:
- Carbohydrates from milk extract such as disaccharides as well as from plants such as complex carbohydrates
- Lipids from vegetable sources such as saturated and unsaturated fatty acids
- Protein from milk extract such as caseins. In addition, the complex is rich in organic calcium and Vitamins A and D.
LactoPro CLP can be formulated as a component of all cosmetic vehicles such as creams, lotions, ointments, etc, as well as hair products such as rinses or leave-on conditioner. It is an excellent moisturizer with texturing and vitalizing properties and produces visible results after only short-term use, exhibiting the reduction of the appearance of dry fine lines, improved elasticity of the skin and a healthier, youthful look.
