Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract

Active Ingredients:
Antarcticine

Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract (also known as Antarcticine) is an active ingredient, a glycoprotein extracted from a bacterium Pseudoalteromonas Antarctica. The discovery of this extremophile microbe learned to survive in the most extreme environments resulted from a scientific expedition to Antarctica’s King George Island. 

In scientific terms, Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract is a high molecular weight glycoprotein produced by a new bacterial strain – Pseudoalteromonas Antarctica. During cell growth, it makes an exopolymer of glycoprotein (76-86% protein and 8-14% sugar), and this compound has been named Antarcticine.

This glycoprotein spreads effectively on the horny layer of the epidermis, preventing skin dryness through its excellent moisturizing properties, displaying the capacity to rapidly recover and bind moisture in extreme conditions, such as post-procedural or acutely dry skin.
