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 submicron lipid particle carrying 3% active retinol. This high-tech capsule offers increased stability, protecting retinol from degradation and making it easy to store and formulate. The small particle size and unique lipid composition of the capsule significantly improve bioavailability in the skin, with a controlled release process of encapsulated retinol.
The protection of the active ingredient and the improved release into the skin enhance the effectiveness of retinol to minimize its level of use and while offering excellent skin tolerance. Skin diffusion of Revitalide measured on skin expanders showed a 7-fold increase in the diffusion of retinol into the skin compared to unencapsulated retinol.
This IECIC compliant ingredient is also a sustainable ingredient with a naturally occurring content of 95.50% according to ISO 16128, it is 100% and easily biodegradable in 28 days, RSPO approved and can be stored at room temperature.
