FSS DermaPeptide Warming OS

Oil Soluble

Spicy cuisine can be found all over the world, and while people may prefer varying intensities, everyone will agree that the stimulating sensory experience is what they enjoy the most. The ingredients that are used to give the cuisine its notorious kick can also be used to spice up skin care to leave your skin feeling warm and refreshed.

The pepper species Capsicum frutescens is broken up into two different types of plants: the Tabasco chile and the Malagueta pepper. The Malagueta, which is Portuguese for “spicy,” is grown in Panama, South America, Mexico, and the Carribbean, while the Tabasco is grown in Central America and Colombia and shipped to Louisiana. These peppers grow on a shrub that grows anywhere from one to four feet high.

The active ingredient in these peppers is capsaicin, which is an oil-soluble active fraction. Capsaicin interacts with sensory neurons by binding to receptors in the brain called Vanilloid Receptor Subtype 1 (VR1). This receptor is an ion channel which, when stimulated by heat, allows cations to travel into the cell. When enough cations enter the cell, the neuron depolarizes and a signal is sent to the brain, causing us to recognize a warming sensation.

It has become a popular trend to have sensational personal care products, so FSS DermaPeptide Warming OS was developed to be effective while also having that “sensory key” to let you know that the product is actually working.

To create a functional ingredient that also provides a warming sensation, we fermented the macerated fruit of Capsicum frutescens with Lactobacillus. This combines the anti-irritant benefits of Lactobacillus with the known properties of Capsicum, such as an increase in circulation. During the fermentation process, a biotransformation takes place, which creates a capsaicinoid that has increased solubility, additional cell metabolism-increasing factors, and anti-irritant properties.

In order to have healthy, radiant skin it is critical to have optimal circulation. FSS DermaPeptide Warming OS utilizes the stimulating qualities of Capsicum to leave your skin feeling warm so you can actually feel the increase in circulation. FSS DermaPeptide Warming OS is useful in a wide variety of cosmetic and personal care products, ranging from anti-aging creams and skin clarifiers to warming lotions and gels.

Please note: Sensory products will vary from person to person, depending on their skin types and many other factors.
