Proteol APL benefits for skin
Proteol APL is a foaming anionic surfactant derived from the amino acids found in apple juice. It not only ensures that Xtend-Life’s Foaming Facial Cleanser offers a creamy, luxurious lather, it is also packed with the amino acids of fresh-from-nature apples, which benefit the skin in multiple ways.
Apple amino acids help boost the cleansing power of other ingredients, working in synergy to gently whisk away dirt, toxins and oils by generating a rich lather with a hint of moisture.
Proteol APL also provides mild fruit acids that gently exfoliate, lifting away dead surface cells to reveal a brighter, more refreshed complexion beneath.
Amino acids from apples – especially aspartic and glutamic acids – help support skin’s delicate collagen and elastin protein cells, not only fighting off free radical activity, but also helping to boost production of these cells that are so essential to skin’s youth, helping to reduce sagging, fine lines and wrinkles while supporting a healthier, more radiant glow.
It also helps support the skin’s barrier layer, sealing in essential moisture so skin doesn’t feel dry or tight after cleansing, but instead feels lightly hydrated due to the moisturizing nutrients that are supported and made more effective by Proteol APL as a foaming delivery system.
Proteol APL also helps support tissue health by strengthening the connective tissue between skin cells, keeping skin looking as ageless as possible, especially when used in conjunction with other skin-care products.
Uses of Proteol APL
Proteol APL is used to help maintain longer foaming action for foaming skin care formulas – shampoos, cleansers, shower gels, etc. – while ensuring that the products are mild and suitable for sensitive skin.
It is especially well suited to baby care products because it is non-irritating and will not strip skin or hair of natural oils.
Source and sustainability of Proteol APL
Because it is made from apple amino acids, Proteol APL is an environmentally-friendly, sustainable choice to improve the composition of foaming formulas.
It is manufactured by the global company Bronson & Jacobs, which has offices in New Zealand, allowing Xtend-Life to help support local businesses while sourcing an environmentally-friendly product for one of its formulas.
Bronson & Jacobs strives to understand – and limit - the environmental impact the production of its products has, working toward sustainability and a limited carbon footprint throughout its business practices.
