Infinity ingredients is the UK distributor of Vegan FDS Zinc PCA from INdermal.
Zinc PCA is the zinc salt of the L-PCA (pyrrolidine carboxylic acid) a doubly active complex that provides the skin and hair with the beneficial effects of the zinc and L-PCA.
Zinc is involved not only in the synthesis of the nucleic acids, including the DNA, but also in the synthesis of proteins, cell division and in the structure and coenzymatic activation of many key molecules in the body and the skin. It also prevents the development of microbial infections thanks to its considerable antiseptic properties.
It has been shown that zinc reduces sebum secretion by inhibiting the 5 α- reductase. When joining L-PCA to an active molecule such as zinc, it becomes a physiological vector which optimises its bioavailability and in addition acts as a signalling molecule to stimulate the epidermal differentiation and strengthen the skin barrier function.
