AC CytoSulf PF

Slow the hands of time on a cellular level. AC Cytosulf PF suspends time and insulates cells from damage by controlling sulfur metabolism. The induction of cellular stasis through plankton derived sulfide donors is the perfect balance for permanently youthful skin. Without inducing cellular death, or overstimulating cell production, AC CytoSulf PF is capable of suspending cells in a semi-permanent, drawn out stage of rest. For skin that truly defies aging through practical and understood science, AC CytoSulf PF is the perfect solution.

Efficacy Assays

  • Cytostasis Assay

    The FUCCI Cell Cycle Sensor Assay was conducted to assess the ability of AC Cyto... Read More

  • Cytostasis Assay

    AC CytoSulf PF was able to induce cytostasis of HaCaT keratinocytes. By suspending the cell cycle, AC CytoSulf PF was able to decrease telomere shortening and prevent mutations to the cellular genome. The results of this assay indicate that AC CytoSulf PF has a positive effect on cell cycle progression, perturbing HaCaT keratinocytes primarily in the G2-M phase.

  • Cellular Viability Assay

    Assesses the ability of a sample to increase cellular metabolic activity in cult... Read More

  • Cellular Viability Assay

    AC CytoSulf PF exhibited positive results by increasing cell metabolism. The increase in fluorescent signal indicates an increase in cellular metabolism and viability post AC CytoSulf PF treatment. For these reasons, we can assume AC CytoSulf PF is suitable for cosmetic applications designed to increase cell viability and metabolism.

  • High Resolution Skin Imaging Ultrasound Assay

    Improves skin density... Read More

  • High Resolution Skin Imaging Ultrasound Assay

    AC CytoSulf PF has a strong positive effect on skin’s density when used at recommended use levels.

  • IL-6 ELISA Assay

    Measures reduction of inflammatory response... Read More

  • IL-6 ELISA Assay

    AC CytoSulf PF exhibited anti-inflammatory effects on LPS-treated fibroblasts. This decrease in IL-6 production indicates a reduced inflammatory environment which could decrease the signs of aging and reduce the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. It can therefore be concluded that at normal use concentrations AC CytoSulf PF enhances soothing and anti-aging properties.

  • Moisturization Assay

    Increase and sustained skin moisturization... Read More

  • Moisturization Assay

    AC CytoSulf PF was designed to provide moisturization benefits, however with the present study we can confirm that this ingredient is not only capable of providing protective benefits but also ideal for moisturizing and skin hydrating personal care applications.

  • ORAC Assay

    Measures a material's potential to protect against oxidative stress or ROS... Read More

  • ORAC Assay

    AC CytoSulf PF exhibited antioxidant activity comparable to 200μM Trolox®. The antioxidant capacity of AC CytoSulf PF increased as the concentration increased. As a result we can assure that its ability to minimize oxidative stress is dose dependent. It can therefore be concluded that AC CytoSulf PF is capable of providing antioxidant properties.

  • Transepidermal Water Loss

    Improves skin integrity and barrier function... Read More

  • Transepidermal Water Loss

    AC CytoSulf PF was designed to provide moisture retention benefits, however with the present study we can confirm that this unique ingredient is not only capable of providing functional benefits but it is also capable of providing a decrease in transepidermal water loss therefore promoting moisture retention benefits when added to cosmetic applications.

  • Scratch Assay

    Assesses wound healing properties of in vitro cultured human dermal fibroblasts... Read More

  • Scratch Assay

    AC CytoSulf PF was able to increase cell migration and close the scratch at a rate comparable to the positive control. The mechanisms of the cells in the in vitro scratch assay mimic the mechanisms seen in in vivo wound healing therefore we can be assured that our results are translatable outside the laboratory. AC CytoSulf PF was designed to be moisturizing and soothing, and provide enhanced aesthetics. With the present study we can also be confident that this product has healing abilities and cell proliferation properties.
