A skin care ingredient duo recently launched by Keratec bridges the
gap between topical cosmetic products and dietary supplements. The two
new ingredients are Cynergy TK, which addresses skin health through
topical application, and Cynergy NK, which addresses skin health as an
oral supplement. The products can be taken together for a synergistic
effect, or individually. They use the cell-strengthening and softening
properties of Functionalized Keratin extracted using patented processes
from New Zealand sheep wool. Keratin is a structural protein that is a
main constituent in skin and hair. It is normally non-soluble, but
Keratec has developed a method of extracting keratin from wool in a
soluble, functional form by separating wool fiber into its constituent
keratin parts without destroying the different fractions. The oral
ingredient can be incorporated into capsules, beverages and food bars.
The topical ingredient can be incorporated into skin creams and toners,
or any other product where the intent is to deliver healing nutrients
directly to the skin or hair.
