The main active ingredient in pellamex is an amino acid which we know is essential for the skin to make filaggrin properly. If the skin can’t get enough of this amino acid it can’t make filaggrin properly and problems with the skin barrier and skin sensitivity occur.
What is filaggrin?
Filaggrin is crucial to making the skin’s natural barrier work. This barrier prevents water loss and protects the skin from the stresses of the outside world, especially from microorganisms, irritants and pollutants.
The filaggrin protein is critical to the skin barrier because it helps to bundle up the tough keratin filaments in the top layer of the epidermis that provide a good, strong, protective skin barrier. We know that some people don’t make enough filaggrin and are more likely to suffer from dry and sensitive skin conditions such as eczema, xerosis, ichthyosis and age-related dryness and skin fragility.
Not only is their skin barrier not working properly but they also have less Natural Moisturising Factor. This is a double hit to their skin’s natural protection! By increasing levels of filaggrin in the epidermis, the skin is less likely to be susceptible to dryness, resulting in strong, healthy, hydrated skin.
How it works
The natural ingredients in pellamex have been expertly blended to work together to ‘feed filaggrin’ from the inside and maintain a healthy and effective skin barrier, making it much less susceptible to dryness, reddening and cracking on the surface.
pellamex has two sites of action
The amino acid in pellamex is a vital building block for filaggrin which helps restore a natural, strong skin barrier which protects the skin from the stresses of the outside world, especially from microorganisms, irritants and pollutants. The strong skin barrier also helps to keep moisture in the skin.
The amino acid in pellamex is also part of the Natural Moisturising Factor so when it reaches the uppermost layers of the skin it can directly help in keeping the skin hydrated. pellamex also contains Vitamins B2, B3, B7, Vitamin E and zinc, which are known to help maintain healthy skin.
The filaggrin protein is critical to the skin barrier because it helps to bundle up the tough keratin filaments in the top layer of the epidermis that provide a good, strong, protective skin barrier.
When filaggrin has completed its job of bundling up the keratin filaments it then naturally breaks down into free amino acids, which are the major components of the Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF). The NMF keeps the skin hydrated and maintains the essential acidity of the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis, which provides another line of defence, especially against bacteria and other microorganisms.

Just some of our reviews
"After taking the product for two months every day, alongside introducing a healthier diet and sleep regime, my hands were completely eczema free. I cannot recommend this product enough."
“After taking Pellamex for around three weeks, my skin healed even more! I couldn’t believe that my skin could actually be clear.”
“My skin’s overall condition is much improved due to the reduction of high dose steroid creams abated, so my overall health is improved.”
“The pimples seem so much less aggressive and laundry is simpler. After two years, the general condition of my skin is noticeably better too.”
