Presperse LLC Partners with Kyowa Hakko USA

February 16, 2010

New York, NY – Presperse LLC has announced it has established a partnership with Kyowa Hakko USA to bring novel Kyowa Hakko ingredients and technologies to the personal care and cosmetic industries. The first ingredients are AHYP™ Natural Skin Barrier (n-ACETYL-L-HYDROXYPROLINE) and Panadoxine™ P, a pro form of Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6).

AHYP™ Natural Skin Barrier is a unique ingredient produced through the fermentation of natural sugars, and employs patented amino acid technology from Kyowa Hakko. Clinical tests have shown superior penetration of the skin, elevation of collagen synthesis, improved skin elasticity and overall strengthening of the skin’s barrier properties to combat allergens and pollution. The ingredient has also shown the capability to accelerate wound healing and increase moisturization.

Panadoxine™ P is released as Vitamin B6 internally by interacting with the body’s enzymes and is a useful source of Vitamin B6 for skin, hair and body that provides long-term health benefits. Due to its stability, Panadoxine™ P is able to penetrate through the first skin layer and treat skin roughness, acne, sunburn and inflammation. Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is well recognized for its proven efficacy for the regulation of sebum production and in reduction of skin inflammation, particularly in men.

Presperse, LLC with corporate offices, warehouse and laboratory facilities in Somerset, New Jersey, is an international organization specializing in servicing the cosmetic and personal care industry with new specialty raw materials. Presperse offers more than 200 unique and diverse materials from around the world.
