Givaudan Active Beauty has launched sustainable microencapsulated hyaluronic acid (HA) for lip care.
Spherulite HA Ultimate is said to deliver high molecular weight (HMW) HA to deeper skin layers thanks to its vectorisation technology.
The performance of Spherulite HA Ultimate has been certified using Raman spectroscopy measurement to demonstrate penetration of the stratum corneum and the epidermis by up to 50μm.
The ingredient has also been clinically tested to show a significant plumping effect of up to 12.4% after 30 minutes and 21.4% at D28.
“The advanced microencapsulation technology of Spherulite allows the vectorisation of HMW HA through multi-layered crystalline microcapsules,” said Marina Egorova, Visuals and Vectorization Category Manager for Active Beauty at Givaudan.
“The non-ionic nature of the capsule enables it to better penetrate the upper layers of the skin to the target activity site where pure HA is slowly released for a long-lasting effect.
“Additionally, the new formulation of Spherulite HA Ultimate is highly sustainable as it contains upcycled natural vitamin E and no preservatives. The natural origin content of the product, according to ISO 16128, is 100%.”
To spark ideas for usage, Givaudan’s Active Beauty team formulated The HA lip bomb, a lip treatment combining its Spherulite HA Ultimate, CristalHyal and PrimalHyal 300 ingredients and formulated with virgin apricot oil to hydrate and improve lip texture and definition.
