16 APAC / Issue 12 2018 , The Science behind Scotch & Tailor In the United States, a Mississippi plastic surgeon noticed unusual properties of keratin materials during the course of his surgical practice. From this pioneering medical research he showed the potent wound healing properties of keratin protein. At the same time New Zealand based research, had identified biotechnology processes for the isolation of natural Keratin proteins from sheep’s wool. This unique technology was able to extract bioactive and highly functional keratin. The resulting high molecular weight keratin protein formed the basis of wound care treatments for the most serious and hard to heal skin problems. New Luxury Skincare from New Zealand Combines Bio- Technology and Sustainable Natural Ingredients to Fight Pollution and Premature Ageing New Zealand Manuka Honey has a long history of being used in medicine and wound care to improve skin healing and provides anti-bacterial support naturally.
