In 1993 Rebirth and Milpharma Laboratory pioneered a unique sheep placenta skincare cream.
Duo portion ’93 is our revolutionary formula of placenta mixed with a water and oil base. This rich and smooth, yet non-greasy cream is highly absorbent, whilst the addition of Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, plays a vital role in stimulating new cell production. For anyone who wants to maintain younger looking, soft and radiant skin, the Rebirth skincare range is second to none. Rebirth skincare minimises early signs of age spots, scars and discolouration, ensuring naturally beautiful skin.
Q. Is sheep placenta a safe ingredient in cosmetics?
A. Yes. Hydrolyzed Placental Protein is classed as suitable for the function of ‘Hair conditioning agent’ and ‘Skin conditioning agent’ by the International Cosmetic Ingredient Directory / International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient (ICID/INI), meaning it is safe to use on your skin.
Q. How are the nutrients extracted from the placenta?
A. The ingredient we use in our skincare range is obtained by acidic, alkaline or enzymatic hydrolysis of the placenta.
Q. What is the placenta primarily composed of?
A. The placenta is primarily composed of amino acids, peptides and various proteins.
Q. What is the benefit of vitamin E?
A. Vitamin E prevents the proliferation of free radicals in skin tissue by reacting with them to form what’s called a tocopheryl radical. This will then be reduced by a hydrogen donor, therefore returning to its reduced state. It is fat-soluble so it is incorporated into cell membranes which protect the cells from oxidative damage.
