Wrinkles, stretch marks, skin imperfections and scars... For decades, retinol has demonstrated its incredible beauty benefits, but also its drawbacks: skin irritation and chemical instability.
Sederma is pleased to present its encapsulated version of this hero ingredient: Revitalide is a submicronic lipid particle carrying 3 % of active retinol. This high-tech capsule offers enhanced stability, protecting retinol from degradation and making it easy to store and formulate. The capsule's small particle size and unique lipid composition significantly enhance bioavailability in the skin, with a controlled release process for encapsulated retinol.
The active ingredient's protection and enhanced release into the skin reinforce retinol's efficacy, minimizing its level of use while offering excellent cutaneous tolerance. Skin diffusion of Revitalide measured on skin expanders showed a 7-fold increase in retinol diffusion into the skin compared with non-encapsulated retinol.
This IECIC-compliant ingredient is also a sustainable ingredient with a natural origin content of 95.50 % according to ISO 16128, is 100 % and readily biodegradable in 28 days, RSPO approved and can be stored at room temperature.
