Ingredient available for medical devices and cosmetic products.
INNOVATE YOUR PRODUCT WITH LACTIVE, THE NEW FRONTIER OF BIOACTIVE INGREDIENTS!
A NEW POWERFUL NATURAL DEFENSE
Lactive is a synergistic patented product, born from the observation of the extraordinary mechanism with which babies defend themselves from pathogen attacks. From the mother's milk, in fact, the baby, thanks to its natural enzymes, generates these peptides that effectively defend it.
In Bict we have reproduced this extraordinary mechanism starting from lactoferrin, thus making available a new natural weapon that with its beneficial effects proves to be a powerful ally of human and animal health.
