Givaudan Active Beauty takes microencapsulation technology to the next level with the unveiling of Spherulite HA Ultimate, a sustainable wellness active capable of delivering high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid (HA) into the deeper layers of the skin using vectorization technology. Dedicated to lip care, Spherulite HA Ultimate demonstrates significant instant and long-term plumping benefits.
HA is widely used in ageing solutions as it plays a major role in skin hydration and firming. This compound is commonly used clinically as a filler for fine lines and wrinkles; however, the majority of consumers remain cautious about injections. Informed consumers who prefer to use skin care products formulated with HA now look for its concentration and other added values as a sign of effective performance.
Marina Egorova, category manager for Visuals and Vectorization at Active Beauty: " Spherulite's advanced microencapsulation technology enables HMW HA to be vectorized through multi-layer crystalline microcapsules. The non-ionic nature of the capsule enables it to better penetrate the upper layers of the skin to the target site of activity, where pure HA is slowly released for a long-lasting effect. What's more, Spherulite HA Ultimate's new formulation is highly sustainable, containing natural upcycled vitamin E and no preservatives. The product's natural origin content according to ISO 16128 is 100 %. "
The performance of Spherulite HA Ultimate has been certified by Raman spectroscopy measurement demonstrating penetration into the stratum corneum and epidermis down to 50 μm. The ingredient has also been clinically tested on women, demonstrating a significant improvement in the plumping effect, up to 12.4 % after 30 minutes and 21.4 % at D28.
