Rotorua, New Zealand and Hillsborough, NC (PRWEB) October 31, 2009
Beauty Spa (Rotorua, NZ) and Koru Naturals (Hillsborough, NC) have announced today that Koru Naturals will become the exclusive U.S. distributor of Pure Source skin care products containing Cynergy TK functional keratin as primary active ingredient.
Keratin is primarily responsible for the skin's elasticity, suppleness and smooth appearance. Keratin is a complex protein, with a defined three-dimensional structure that must be preserved for the protein to be active. Although keratin has been used for many years as skin care ingredient, the traditional extraction process using strong organic solvents leads to the loss of the three-dimensional structure, resulting in a two-dimensional 'flat" protein that has no biological activity. Keratin is a main component of sheep wool, an important natural resource in New Zealand. Scientists at the Keratec Corporation (Canterbury, New Zealand) developed a new method for extracting keratin in its native form. This keratin Cynergy TK retains its original three-dimensional structure, and thus its full biological activity. Scientific studies conducted in New Zealand have confirmed the positive effects of this ingredients on skin cells.
Beauty Spa, located in beautiful Rotorua, is one of the oldest skin care companies in New Zealand, and focuses on the use of native natural products as skin care ingredients. For this particular line of products, Beauty Spa has combined Cynergy TK with extracts of native New Zealand fruits such as kiwifruit, known to have effective anti-oxidant and cell-protective properties.
Koru Naturals is the leading U.S. importer of natural products from New Zealand, specializing in skin care and natural health, including manuka honey, propolis and lanolin products.
