 Cosmoperine®

 Cosmoperine, also known as tetrahydropiperine (THP), is derived from piperine, the active principle of black peppercorns (Piper nigrum) which acts as a penetration enhancer when added to water soluble ingredients. It works by enhancing the bioavailability of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, coenzymes, and nutraceutical herbal extracts. An increase in topical permeation was shown when combining Cosmoperine with products like Green Tea extract; an antioxidant rich in polyphenols, Coleus Forskohlli Extract; a skin conditioning agent and Tetrahydrocurcumin; derived from Curcuminoids as extracted from Tumeric Root, acting as a potent antioxidant. One study showed an enhanced absorbtion of 30% in Vitamin C and Beta Carotene.

While at present there is insufficient experimental data to determine the actual mechanism of THP’s bioenhancing properties, it is postulated that THP may operate by increasing either the membrane’s fluidity and/or the affinity of the nutrient to the cell membrane. THP is also a lipophilic compound and may therefore increase solubilization of the intracellular lipid moiety in the skin, making it more permeable to the applied nutrient.

Our Customers Say...
I affectionately refer to Jennifer as "Jenny on the block" even though I am located in Denver. Her service is excellent and I have found no other web-based supplier that takes such great pride in ensuring that you have the highest quality products and most complete technical information available. Jenny, you ROCK!!!
Cynthia, (Just For You)

I have to admit, the products are well packaged, but the adorableness of the little containers makes me go, "awwww," when I start to formulate.

All cute aside, I love LotionCrafter. I can get products here I have a hard time sourcing at rates I'm willing to pay. I don't want to buy huge amounts of anything when I'm making initial formulations. I want to use small amounts to decide if something should be in my line. I can go small, or huge and that makes me feel confident that I can source what I need in amounts I can purchase.

I can get silicones here I can't find anywhere else and I've made my own primer that's head and shoulders above anything else I've ever purchased for any amount of money.

I am in love and I have large orders planned over the next few months. Thank you.
Nancy Liedel, (Makeup by Nancy)

I have been ordering from LC for a few months now and I am very pleased with the products. I was especially looking for a good preservative and Optiphen Plus has not disappointed me. I just stared a small lotion business and the preservative is great. I have had no problem. My second go to is the LC E-wax NF, this is a great emulsifier. This has not disappointed me yet. No separation at all in my lotions. Thanks for taking the guess work out of using the correct combination of emulsifiers. I will definitely a repeat customer.
Thanks for helping me in my start up small business. I LOOK FORWARD TO GROWING MY SMALL BUSINESS WITH LC
Wanda, (Maria's Natural Lotion)

Just wanted to say "Thank You" your customer service ROCKS IT!. I ordered a few things, and they were delivered two days later they shipped the day I placed my order. Then today I get a notification that you gave me a credit for postage. WOW, really? That never happens. Thank you for such integrity and excellent customer service.

Regards,
Deb
