Citrustem® is one of the newest natural active cosmetic ingredients from Provital! Citrustem is made from orange stem cells and works by organizing the inner structure of the skin for a more younger appearance.

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells found in all multi-cellular organisms. In plants, stem cells are capable of regenerating the entire plant. The stem cells used in Citrustem are sourced from renewable plant material in a sustainable and ecological process, without genetic modifications or solvents.

Citrustem functions by organizing and redensifying the dermis structure which allows skin to recover youthful elasticity and supple softness. Citrustem restores the extracellular network which improves cell adhesion, resulting in a softer, fresher and more youthful appearance.

In Vitro Test
- Increased the expression level of genes that are able to improve the extracellular matrix structure, including genes for collagen type VI, alpha 1; Elastin; and metallopeptidase ADAMTS2.
- Stimulated the proliferation of fibroblasts to increase the synthesis of collagen.
- Increased the production of keratinocyte transglutaminase, which leads to better organization and assembly of epidermal structures.

In Vivo Test on 20 women, aged 41-55 years, 3% Citrustem, used twice per day for 56 days
- Improved the sharpness of microrelief in the skin by 10.4% compared to placebo.
- Microrelief improvement is the visible result of a well organized and structured dermis.

Coenzyme Q10 is important for skin care. It plays a vital role in the production of collagen and other proteins that make up the extracellular matrix. When the extracellular matrix is disrupted or depleted, skin will lose its elasticity, smoothness, and tone which can cause wrinkles and premature aging. Coenzyme Q10 can help to maintain overall skin integrity and reduce the signs of aging.

By functioning as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger, Coenzyme Q10 can enhance our natural defense system against environmental stress. Coenzyme Q10 can also be useful in sun care products. Data has demonstrated a reduction of wrinkles with long-term use of Coenzyme Q10 in skin care products.

Coenzyme Q10 is recommended for use in creams, lotions, oil based serums, and other cosmetic products. Coenzyme Q10 is particularly useful in antiaging formulations and sun care products.

Coenzyme Q10 is not derived from animal source.  It is derived from a microbial fermentation process.

Colhibin - Defense Against Premature Skin Aging.

Colhibin is a plant derived peptide fraction that protects Collagen from the harmful effects of Collagenases (MMPs). Colhibin has been clinically proven to help to reduce skin roughness and to delay wrinkle formation.

As skin ages, the synthesis of collagen decreases. In addition, enzymes known as Collagenases, promote the degradation of collagen. This degradation is sometimes referred to as MMP activity. MMP activity leaves skin rough and wrinkles are formed. Colhibin has strong MMP (Collagenases) inhibition properties that protect the collagen fibers from degradation. Colhibin is recommeded for antiaging products, sun care products, and other personal care products.

Characteristics and Benefits:
- Protects natural collagen network in skin
- Improves bimechanical properties of photo aged skin
- Reduces skin roughness
- Promotes smooth skin and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Excellent Moisture Retention

Colhibin consists of pure rice-derived antiaging peptides.

Formulation Guidelines:
- Process warm (<70C) or cold. Best added to emulsions during cooldown phase.
- Stable in pH 5.0-8.0

These beneficial constituents include 70 - 90 % essential oil containing mainly ar-curcumene, ß-curcumene and xanthorrhizol (Hydroxy-ar-Curcumene).

Curcuma Xanthorrhiza CO2 Extract has calming properties and is therefore useful in skin soothing formulas.

Price (each):
  • $195.00
Extraordinary XG is a multifunctional natural polymer derived from Xanthan Gum. Extraordinary XG is a trademark of The Herbarie. This ingredient makes a clear gel product--instantly--with no neutralization required.

Extraordinary XG can be used for leave-on skin care as a gel, serum, or as part of an emulsion. The skin-feel is smooth and soft.

Extraordinary XG can also be used for hair care to provide outstanding, long-lasting hold under highly humid conditions, without the tack and flaking often associated with gels. We recommend this ingredient as a substitute for carbomer and PVP in hair styling formulas.

Extraordinary XG is suitable for use in gels, serums, glazes, spray gels, mousses, creams/lotions, pomades and other styling aids.

The recommended usage for this lightweight powder is 0.2% – 2.0%. Usage at 1% will provide a very thick gel. This xanthan gum derivative is truly extraordinary!

Features/Benefits:
•Naturally derived
•Multi-functional: Fixative and thickener/suspending agent
••Ease of use: easily dispersed into room temperature water with no neutralization required
•Quickly recovers viscosity following high shear
•Good suspending ability
•Soft, smooth feel
•Superior feel without tackiness
•Long lasting hold under high humidity (retains 95% curl retention after 24 hours at 70F)
•Ease of detangling and combing (less mechanical damage)
•Minimal flaking
•Restylability

Stability/Compatibility:
•Soluble in water and ethanol (less than 30%).
•Optimum formulation pH: 4.5 – 6.0. As pH decreases, gel clarity is reduced.
•As pH increases slightly, gel clarity is improved.
•Anionic – compatible with silicones, propylene glycol, glycerin, disodium EDTA, tetrasodium EDTA, sodium phosphate, some cationic polymers, acrylate polymers, polyurethane polymers, PVP, native xanthan gum, hydroxyethylcellulose, fatty alcohols, nonionic emulsifiers. XG is not compatible with most surfactants and is not recommended as a thickener for shampoo/body wash.
•Salt can adversely effect gel.
•Paraben based preservatives may reduce viscosity. Liquid Germall Plus is the recommended preservative.
•Homogenization can improve the gel texture and clarity. A homogenization speed of 300-600 rpm is recommended.
•Good UV stability

Formulation Guidelines: No heating required. No neutralization required. To make a gel, follow typical hydrocolloid dispersion procedures: While room temperature, deionized or distilled water is being stirred and is moving, slowly sprinkle powder into moving water. Particles must be sifted/separated to avoid conglomeration and “fish eyes”. Continue to stir as product thickens into a gel consistency.

Glucamate® LT offers superior thickening for surfactant-based systems such as such as shampoo, shower gel, and and other cleansers. Glucamate LT is based on a stabilized methyl glucoside backbone and is derived from natural and renewable resources.

The natural, oleate chemistry of Glucamate LT contributes to its luxurious sensory properties and a light, emollient afterfeel. The three-dimensional structure of Glucamate® LT thickener interacts with surfactants to form a complex network that actually contains less water and “breaks” easily during rub in. This phenomenon improves the feel of shampoo, body wash, shower gel, facial cleansers, and other liquid cleansers.

Glucamate® LT is a liquid product which can easily be cold processed - meaning that no heat or additional energy is required to dissolve the material or create the association required for thickening.

Glucamate® LT can be used as the only thickener or for synergistic thickening with products such as MaizeThix or GuarSilk. For enhanced performance, Glucamate® LT thickener can be heated to 70ºC. Glucamate LT is compatible with anionic, nonionic, and amphoteric surfactants and is very easy to use. It is best used in a pH range between 5.0 and 9.0.

Features and Benefits of Glucamate® LT:
â€- Derived from Natural, Renewable Resources
â€- Easy to use – Can Be Cold Processed
â€- Improves Stability and Retention of Foam
â€- Efficient Thickening at Low Use Levels
â€- Synergistic Thickening with Natural Polymers
â€- Provides Clear System
â€- Ultra Mild, Nontoxic and Non-irritating
â€- Light Emollient Afterfeel

Suggested Applications for Glucamate® LT:
â€- Body Washes/Shower Gels
â€- Mild Shampoos (such as Baby and Color-treated)
â€- Facial Cleansers
â€- Facial Scrubs
â€- Foaming Hand Cleansers
â€- Liquid Hand Soaps

Glucono-Delta-Lactone (GDL) is a naturally-derived food grade product derived from non-GMO sources. Glucono-Delta-Lactone (GDL) is useful in cosmetics and toiletry applications as a gentle acidifier and chelating agent. Glucono-Delta-Lactone (GDL) can be combined with antimicrobials and will function as part of an effective preservative system.

Glucono Delta Lactone is characterized as a carbohydrate, but functions as a food grade acidulant and chelating agent. The unique characteristcs are due to lactone formation. In an aqueous solution there is an equilibrium between gluconic acid and the delta and gamma lactones. This change in molecular form contributes to its unique function. Due to its slow hydrolysis to gluconic acid (which takes place gradually over the forty to sixty minutes after dissolution), it provides a gradual, progressive and continuous decrease of pH to equilibrium.

The functionality of Glucono-Delta-Lactone (GDL) to help prevent microbial growth is primarily due to the decrease in pH and the ability to chelate. In addition, the multiple hydroxyl groups on the GDL molecule can attract water and perhaps limit water activity. This unique functionality can also provide a moisturizing effect when it is utilized in hair or skin care formulations. When combined with a plant based, broad spectrum antimicrobial such as Leucidal Liquid, it can enhance the antimicrobial activity in the finished product.

Glucono-Delta-Lactone (GDL) can be used in skin care serums, creams, lotions, facial toners, and hair care formulas.

Glucono-Delta-Lactone (GDL) can be combined with Leucidal Liquid, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium sorbate, Optiphen, and Optiphen ND.

A cationic derivative of a natural gum that is highly substantive to both hair and skin. GuarSilk is THE key ingredient in conditioning shampoos to leave hair soft, shiny and silky. GuarSilk is a trademark of The Herbarie. GuarSilk is quickly and easily dispersible in room temperature water and is compatible with anionic and amphoteric systems. In addition to its superior conditioning properties, GuarSilk has the benefit of increasing viscosity and stability in formulations. To give some idea of the amount needed: Two ounces GuarSilk will be enough for 50-60 8 ounce bottles of shampoo/body wash. Our 24 ounce of GuarSilk will be enough for 400+ 8 oz. bottles of shampoo/body wash.

Recommended Applications: GuarSilk is recommended for use in hair and skin care formulations to provide conditioning and to increase viscosity.
Shampoos: Although GuarSilk is cationic, it is compatible with most anionic surfactants used in hair care. GuarSilk can be used as a conditioning and softening agent and also as the primary viscosifer of a shampoo. A use level of 1.0-1.5% is recommended, based on the weight of the final formulation. For light conditioning, GuarSilk can be utilized from 0.15%-0.25%.
Lotions and Creams: GuarSilk is highly substantive and will enhance the conditioning and silky feel of emulsions. Typically 0.15%-0.25% is recommended.

Price (each):

Homeostatine® is a natural active cosmetic ingredient from Provital. Through an innovative process, Homeostatine® will recover and maintain homeostasis in the dermal extra-cellular matrix to produce a better moisturized, more elastic, firmer skin with noticeably less wrinkles.

Homeostatine® combines two botanicals into a novel skin care complex. This unique complex is derived from the seeds of the Andean tree Caesalpinia spinosa and the algae known as Enteromorpha compressa. Homeostatine activity is due to the combined action of galactomannan from Caesalpinia spinosa and marine pentasaccharide (MPS) from Enteromorpha compressa.

Within this novel hydro-colloidal three-dimensional matrix, these two components function at two different levels. Galactomannans are high molecular weight polysaccharides with natural hydrating functions. The hydrocolloid, galactomannan structure provides the moisturizing matrix and maintains contact with the stratum corneum for the release of the MPS. The MPS molecules are very small and can penetrate the epidermis to promote the synthesis of collagen and function as metabolism mediators within the dermis. Within the dermis, the MPS will function to inhibit the synthesis of Metalloproteinases (MMP) as well as the synthesis of pro-inflammatory mediators such as cytokines. When MMP is inhibited, the degradation of collagen and other extracellular components is reduced. The result is less wrinkled, rejuvenated, and firmer skin.

Homeostatine Activity:
- Increases the production of dermal collagen and other ECM components in fibroblasts.
- Inhibits the synthesis of metalloproteinases (MMP).
- Inhibits the synthesis of pro-inflammatory mediators.

Recommended Usage: 2% - 3% for early wrinkles and 2% - 5% for aged skin.

NEW PRICING - Hydroxethyl Cellulose (HEC) is an excellent thickening agent for cosmetic and personal care formulations. This nonionic, water soluble polymer offers efficient and cost-effective options for making crystal clear gel products.

There are different grades of HEC with varying formulation requirements. The Herbarie's Hydroxethyl Cellulose (HEC) is a free-flowing, extremely easy to use, granular powder that easily disperses into room temperature water without clumping or forming “fish-eyes”. We are currently the only distributor for this particular Hydroxyethcellose (HEC) product, therefore other HEC products will likely require different formulation technique and procedures.

Hydroxethyl Cellulose (HEC) has an exceptional skin feel and is the perfect ingredient to make crystal clear serums for water soluble active ingredients. It can also be used to make crystal clear, water soluble hair styling gels. In addition, Hydroxethyl Cellulose (HEC) offers excellent functionality when used in the water phase of emulsions to build viscosity and stability. However, Hydroxethyl Cellulose (HEC) is not an emulsifier and will not emulsify oils into water.

Formulation Guidelines:
- Disperse into room temperature water
- Heat to approximately 165-170F with mixing
- Once the dispersion begins to thicken, remove from heat.

Leucidal® Liquid is a natural, plant-based preservative from Active Micro Technologies. Active Micro Technologies combines the current trends for alternative preservative systems with peptide technology.

Leucidal® Liquid is derived from Leuconostoc kimchii, the bacteria that has traditionally been used to make kimchi. This product consists of a peptide that is secreted from the bacteria during the fermentation process that has been shown to have antimicrobial benefits.

Leucidal® Liquid is odorless, non-irritating and compatible with most ingredients.

Leucidal® Liquid does contain salicylates.

Active Micro Technologies utilizes cutting edge biotechnology based on the natural defense mechanisms used by microorganisms to protect themselves. Techniques have been developed to combine the performance of botanical extracts and fermentation products to harness this natural defense mechanism. Natural Preservative - Leucidal® Liquid combines the current trends for alternative preservative systems and peptide technology.

Challenge testing has demonstrated that 2% Leucidal® Liquid in a cream base is able to successfully inhibit microbial growth. Samples were inoculated with S. aureus, E. coli, P. aeruginosa, C. albicans, A. niger, K. pneumoniae, B. cepacia. Following 28 days of incubation samples were then re-inoculated for an additional 28 days. Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations (MIC) were determined using a standard agar dilution method. A variety of bacteria and fungus were tested to evaluate the ability of Leucidal Liquid to protect against microbial contamination. The results indicate that Leucidal Liquid can provide effective protection for certain cosmetic systems.

Please note that every personal care formulation requires a preservative system that meets its specific needs. Each formulation should be created with the preservative system as part of the formulation, rather than adding a preservative as an afterthought. Using natural antimicrobials for cosmetic preservation requires careful planning and much testing. Therefore, we recommend that every newly developed formulation should undergo microbial testing to ensure adequate preservation.

Leucidal® Liquid SFis the newest of the natural, plant-based preservatives from Active Micro Technologies. Active Micro Technologies combines the current trends for alternative preservative systems with peptide technology.

Leucidal® Liquid SF is a probiotic-based ingredient created by the fermentation of Lactobacillus in a defined growth medium. Lactobacillus is one of the species of microorganisms used to produce fermented products such as sau¬erkraut and kimchi, a Korean dietary staple, from cabbage. Like many members of the lactic acid bacteria family, Lactobacillus is capable of restricting the growth of other microorganisms by acidifying its environment. However, in addition to acidifying its environment, Lactobacillus also produces novel antimicrobial peptides, also known as bacteriocins, that are capable of providing broad spectrum antimicrobial protection.

Leucidal® Liquid SF is Salicylate Free.

Leucidal® Liquid SF is suitable as the primary preservative in a wide range of cosmetic formulations. Leucidal Liquid SF is excellent against bacteria, but may not provide as much protection against yeast and mold. For more difficult to preserve formulations we recommend combining 2-4% Leucidal Liquid SF with 0.2% Microguard. Or 2% Leucidal Liquid SF with 2% Leucidal Liquid PT.

Leucidal® Liquid SF is non-irritating, non-sticky and compatible with most ingredients.

Price (each):
  • $95.00
MaizeThix is a natural, cornstarch based thickener for shampoo, body wash, facial cleansers and other surfactant based systems. MaizeThix works exceptionally well to build viscosity in difficult to thicken surfactant systems and out performs all other starch or cellulose gum thickeners. MaizeThix functions well in neutral to mildly acidic systems and is tolerant of low pH and salt. MaizeThix imparts a silky feel in rinse-off and will not compromise foam. MaizeThix is easy to disperse in room temperature water and will not develop "fish eyes".

Formulating Guidelines:
MaizeThix is easily dispersed into room temperature water. Gently stir until MaizeThix is completely incorporated and hydrated. When incorporated and hydrated (allow 15-20 minutes for hydrating) at the recommended percentages, MaizeThix will typically form a very, thick paste-like consistency. For cold-process formulas, the liquid surfactant should be directly added to the hydrated MaizeThix and gently stirred until incorporated. As additional ingredients are added to the formula, MaizeThix will loose its paste-like consistency and develop a lovely rheology and consistency. Reducing the pH of the finished shampoo may increase viscosity. Essential oils, fragrance oils and other ingredients may have an effect on the viscosity of the finished formula.

MaizeThix can be used as the only thickener or in combination with other thickeners. When used as the only thickener in shampoo or body wash, we typically recommend using 5.0%-7.0%. MaizeThix is nonionic and is compatible with most other gums and starches such as GuarSilk. MaizeThix and GuarSilk offer synergistic thickening and conditioning. We suggest 5.0% MaizeThix and 0.2% GuarSilk for a light, conditioning formula. Please see our formulary for sample formulas:

Matrix Peptide - Restore and maintain skin's youthful appearance!

Our skin matrix is made up of 75% collagen. Collagen is an integral structural component of this matrix and is responsible for providing skin with the necessary strength and support for the surrounding cells.

Collagen synthesis occurs naturally throughout our lives as our skin continuously repairs damaged tissue or builds new tissue. As we age, collagen synthesis decreases and skin will degrade. Therefore, preventing the loss of collagen and promoting the synthesis of collagen are both integral to maintaining youthful, healthy skin.

Matrix Peptide is recommended for antiaging creams, lotions, serums, toners, and other personal care products.

Matrix Peptide is pure (>99.7%) G-P-Hyp tripeptide that is produced without the use of animal derived products or GMOs. With a molecular weight of 285 D it shows excellent bioavailability. In-vitro experiments have demonstrated Matrix Peptide will significantly increase the synthesis of Collagen I by binding to fibroblast receptors to initiate collagen production, making Matrix Peptide suitable for a variety of skin care applications to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Mountain Mint Hydrosol (Pycnanthemum species) is refreshing, cooling and very aromatic. Mountain Mint Hydrosol can be used for skin care or hair care or for aromatherapy.

Since our Mountain Mint Hydrosol contains a significant amount of essential oil we do not recommend using directly on skin. We recommend using 5% - 50% in most skin care or hair care formulations.

Mountain Mint Hydrosol can be blended with other hydrosols such as Melissa Hydrosol or Spearmint Hydrosol for a cooling facial or body mist.

Mountain Mint Hydrosol also combines well with our Catnip Hydrosol. We use these two hydrosols as a base for our Natural Insect Repellent. Directions:
1) Combine the following essential oils in equal parts: Geranium, Lavender, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Rosemary, and Cedarwood virginiana.
2) Combine this essential oil blend with AquaEm.
For application to skin, use 0.5% - 2%.
For application to socks/clothing, use 2%-5%.
3) Add Catnip Hydrosol/Mountain Mint Hydrosol (1/1 ratio) mix well and package in a spritzer bottle to make a very effective natural insect repellent.
Avoid eyes and sensitive skin.

Price (each):

NatraMulse is a natural Source self-emulsifier for oil-in-water emulsions. This system is based on vegetable source lactylates, which are conditioning to both hair and skin. The anionic lactylates are produced by a reaction between the acyl group of fatty acids and lactic acid. Lactic acid and fatty acids are natural moisturizing factor (NMF) constituents that are found in the skin. The lactylates are excellent viscosity enhancers, stabilizers, and conditioners.

NatraMulse is a complete, balanced and highly desirable emulsification system that provides a conditioned after-feel to creams and lotions. For increased stability and moisturization we recommend VenaSilk from 1-2%. For increased slip and elegant feel in application, we recommend an emollient ester or Botanical Complex LSC or Calendula Extract OS from 1-5%.

NatraMulse can also be used in facial care formulas as a gentle rinse-off cleanser.

Please visit our Formulary for more information. Here are two sample formulas:

Natural Synergy Preservative System is a 100% natural system of multifunctional, synergistic components. Natural Synergy Preservative System utilizes hurdle technology which allows the formulator to create self-preserving formulations.

Natural Synergy Preservative System offers excellent antimicrobial and antifungal properties and also serves as an emollient in formulations. This all natural system is comprised of two parts:
#1 Caprylhydroxamic Acid (and) Propanediol
#2 Glyceryl Caprylate.
These components are supplied in two separate containers as a complete Natural Synergy Preservative System.

We recommend Natural Synergy Preservative System for creams and lotions, body butters, hair care products and other skin care products.

Natural Synergy Preservative System is an ideal choice for those wanting to make preservative-free and/or paraben-free and formaldehyde-free claims. Both Caprylhydroxamic acid and Glyceryl Caprylate are plant based.

Natural Synergy Preservative System is biodegradable and from non-GMO vegetable sources.

Caprylhydroxamic acid is active at low, neutral, or high pH which allows for flexibility in formulating a wide range of cosmetic products and is most active against yeast and mold. Caprylhydroxamic acid is water soluble.

Glyceryl Caprylate is a multi-functional, high purity monoester of glycerin and caprylic acid that combines excellent skin compatibility with remarkable effects against microorganisms and is most active against bacteria. Glyceryl Caprylate is not water soluble.

Please note that every personal care formulation requires a preservative system that meets its specific needs. Each formulation should be created with the preservative system as part of the formulation, rather than adding a preservative as an afterthought. Using natural antimicrobials for cosmetic preservation requires careful planning and much testing. Therefore, we recommend that every newly developed formulation should undergo microbial testing to ensure adequate preservation.

Optiphen is ISP's first globally approved preservative and is an excellent choice for formulations that require a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative system. Optiphen is a unique liquid preservative that consists of phenoxyethanol in an emollient base. The combination of these ingredients provides optimized protection against microbial growth from bacteria and yeast while imparting a pleasant feel to the finished product.

Formulating Guidelines:
- Optiphen is suitable for anhydrous formulations and emulsions, such as creams, lotions, salves, body butters, and body scrubs.
- Optiphen is not heat sensitive and can be added directly to the formulation with heat. However, Optiphen can destabilize some emulsions so for most emulsions, we recommend that Optiphen be added during POST-emulsification at or below 37.7°C (100°F).
- There are no pH restrictions and it is compatible with most raw materials.
- Optiphen is not very water soluble and is therefor NOT recommended for all water products. For all water products or high surfactant-based sytems, such as toners or floral waters or shampoo or body wash, we recommend Optiphen ND.
