“Biodesign company Geltor today announced Elastapure™, the newest ingredient in its portfolio of bioidentical active ingredients for the cosmetics industry. The first ever human elastin designed for topical skincare, Elastapure™ is the latest ingredient technology developed using Geltor’s biodesign platform.
A major component of human skin, elastin functions alongside collagen in the body and provides elasticity through its moisture-retaining properties and unique ability as a protein to stretch and recoil. Similarly to collagen and other building blocks of skin, production of elastin in the body visibly decreases over time, and elastin for consumer products has historically been derived from animal sources. Geltor’s sustainable, 100% plant-based fermentation technology has unlocked the capacity to deliver key proteins to the consumer packaged goods industries in an unprecedented ultra-pure and biocompatible form requiring zero human or animal inputs.”
