Biocell Technology Launches Anti-Aging Cosmeceutical Ingredient For Topical Formulations

The new patented ingredient BioCell Collagen II CG (cosmetic grade) provides bio-optimized collagen peptides, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid in a phospholipid matrix.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Jan. 3, 2007 --- The launch of BioCell Collagen II® Cosmetic Grade (CG), a topical grade version of BioCell Technology's popular oral dietary nutraceutical ingredient BioCell Collagen II sold in leading national brands such as Purity Products, Solgar, Nature's Way, Source Naturals and Jarrow Formulas, is announced by global supplier of patented and research based ingredients, BioCell Technology of Newport Beach, California.

Developed specifically to possess properties essential for the topical care and protection of skin and hair, BioCell Collagen II CG provides hydrolyzed collagen peptides, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid in a phospholipid matrix. Phospholipids aid the emulsification compatibility of BioCell Collagen II CG in various topical formulations and simultaneously reduces transepidermal water loss, thus imparting a strong moisturizing effect.

BioCell Collagen II CG has been found to dramatically improve the skin feel of topical formulations, leaving treated areas looking and feeling soft and smooth. Dermatologically compatible in both water and lipid phase formulations while free of all contaminants, BioCell Collagen II CG consists of hydrolyzed collagen in a specific molecular size range providing optimal topical effects. With the introduction of BioCell Collagen II CG to the high end cosmetic market, consumers now have access to a topical hydrolyzed collagen and hyaluronic acid that is optimized for cosmetic applications.

Suhail Ishaq, vice president of BioCell Technology explained, "Our expertise in the field of collagen has led to our BioCell Collagen II being the first hydrolyzed collagen and hyaluronic acid ingredient to be studied for oral bioavailability. BioCell Collagen II product was shown to suppress hyaluronidase, a key enzyme that may contribute to skin aging. With the introduction of patented BioCell Collagen II CG into the market, cosmetic manufacturers may expand their product line or existing formulas to include BioCell Collagen II in their topical formulations."

BioCell Collagen II CG is now available for development of cosmetic formulations worldwide. For more information on this exclusive ingredient please visit
