Givaudan Active Beauty advances microencapsulation technology by unveiling Spherulite HA Ultimate, a sustainable well-ageing active ingredient able to deliver high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid (HA) to deeper skin layers thanks to vectorisation technology
Dedicated to lip care, Spherulite HA Ultimate demonstrates significant instant and long-term plumping benefits.
HA is widely used in well-ageing solutions as it plays a major role in keeping skin hydrated and plumped. The compound is commonly used clinically as a filler for fine lines and wrinkles; however, a majority of consumers remain cautious about injections. Well-informed beauty consumers who prefer the use of skincare products formulated with HA now look for its concentration and other added values as a sign of efficient performance.
Marina Egorova, Visuals and Vectorisation Category Manager for Active Beauty: “The advanced microencapsulation technology of Spherulite allows the vectorisation of HMW HA through multi-layered crystalline microcapsules. 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 high sustainable as it contains upcycled natural vitamin E and no preservatives. The Natural Origin Content of the product according to ISO 16128 is 100%.”
The performance of Spherulite HA Ultimate has been certified by Raman spectroscopy measurement demonstrating a penetration in the stratum corneum and the epidermis up to 50 μm. The ingredient is also clinically tested on women and demonstrates significant improvements in plumping effect, up to 12,4% after 30 minutes and 21.4% at D28.
