Swallowtail butterflies (Papilio spp.) are found throughout all the world’s continents. These butterflies’ delicate anatomies hide a powerful biochemical physiology that has evolved to protect them in the many hostile environments that they encounter. These adaptations include anti-inflammatory proteins to protect their fragile wings from inflammation and damage.

MorphoClenseTM has been shown, in-vitro, to achieve a 73% reduction in PLA2 activity. MorphoClenseTM is non-toxic to human cells in culture, water soluble and amenable to many formulations. Suggested formulations include washes, cleansers and scrubs with claims for reducing redness and irritation.
