 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.

A car drove off the Anacortes Ferry Dock about 9:45AM this morning and emergency crews are there in a search and recovery effort. Service to and from Orcas Island is expected to be suspended for many more hours. This will delay UPS and Mail shipments by a day as these services will miss connections on the mainland. We appreciate your understanding of this situation beyond our control. Please keep the occupants of the vehicle in your thoughts and prayers.
