Cetpro is a range of functional ingredients exclusive to the ProTec Group.
|Azelaic Acid has antioxidant, anti- inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It is also an anti-keratinising agent.
|Ascorbyl Glucoside is an excellent antioxidant. It can dramatically reduce the free radicals that result from UV irradiation of skin.
|Oil soluble Vitamin C derivative that has a higher rate of penetration (because it is lipid soluble) compared to other derivatives; it also has a higher rate of conversion to Vitamin C within the dermis.
|Cetpro® Copper Gluconate
|Copper gluconate firms the skin by improving collagen and elastin. It revitalises skin by providing elemental or ionic copper. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps modulate the inflammation process and decreases the allergic response of skin to external allergens
|Cetpro® DL - MA
|An appropriate treatment for a wide variety of skin concerns, from acne to wrinkles.
|3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid
|Cetpro EAC is modified Ascorbic Acid. This increases the molecule’s stability and enhances its transport through the skin, compared to pure Vitamin C which is easily degraded.
|Ferulic acid has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activity.
|It has the ability to inhibit tyrosinase activity in synthesis of melanin and is more stable than Kojic Acid
|L-Glutathione acts as an antioxidant, free radical scavenger and skin whitening agent
|Lactobionic Acid helps prevent and reverse the appearance of photoaging, including lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores and roughness.
|Film-former, skin tightener, rheology modifier
|Film-former, skin tightener, rheology modifier, synergistic effect with Vitamin C.
|Retinal (also known as retinaldehyde) behaves in a similar way to the better known retinol, but it is much more stable and more effective.
|Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate
|Neutralises skin damaging free radicals, boosts collagen production, evens skin tone and has antimicrobial benefits
|Blocks the production of melanin in the cells, prevents melanin from
accumulating locally and dissolves the already present melanin.
|Vanillyl Butyl Ether
|A unique sensory agent that provides a warming effect to the skin.
|Cetpro® PQ - 7RC
|Conditioning agent, 4 times the concentration of standard PQ-7 (36%)
|Perfect for use in spray on, leave in hair conditioners and is an excellent detangler and provides slip for easier wet-combing. In addition, it will add softness and shine to dry hair.
|Improves wet and dry combability, enhances shine.
|Improves wet and dry combability, good curl retention, moisturising, improves skin feel in emulsions.
|Conditioning agent, enhances slip
|Enhances slip and lubricity, excellent pH compatibility, reduces drag and skin tightness.
|Enhances slip and lubricity, excellent pH compatibility, detangling properties, aids curl retention, reduces drag and skin tightness.
|Cetpro® PQ-4 H100
|Conditioning agent, film former
|Improves wet and dry combability, anti- static, enhances gloss. Recommended for moderate to high viscosity systems.
|Cetpro® PQ-4 L200
|Conditioning agent, film former
|Improves wet and dry combability, anti- static, enhances gloss. Recommended for low viscosity systems.
|Easy to use opacifier with an excellent compatibility profile.
