Emulsification and Blending

  • Hydrophilic Polar Head + Lipophilic Tails = Amphiphilic Character
  • Grants reduction in surface tension, thus giving emulsification property
  • Maintains homogeneity of emulsions
  • Bestows stability to emulsion
  • Allows formation of O/W as well as W/O emulsions

Permeation Enhancers

Phospholipids when hydrated form spherical vesicles having lipid bilayers (LIPOSOMES) due to their unique property to self assemble in an aqueous medium. Modified phospholipids may also be used to form unimeric nanoparticles (MICELLES).

  • Enhance percutaneous absorption of actives
  • Can be loaded with Hydrophilic as well as Lipophilic actives
  • Improve bioavailability of actives
  • Encapsulating phyto-actives are known as Phytolipids

Liposomal Agents

Liposomal delivery system is considered as a modern delivery system to improve the bioavailability of conventional cosmetic ingredients. It is biocompatible, safe and increases the cellular uptake of bioactives by getting absorbed directly in the membranes. This higher absorption, leads to greater efficacy with smaller doses, making it a less invasive option to achieve better results.

Skin Care

Skin is the largest organ and it is protected by a fragile hydrolipid film that functions as a protective barrier from the external world. The epidermis is the outer layer of the two layers that make up the skin, the inner layer being the dermis. The epidermis is further composed of 4 or 5 sub-layers. The cells in each of these layers are surrounded in the extracellular space by stacked layers of lipids. The fatty acid composition of Phospholipids mimics that of the lipids of the hydrolipid film as well as the epidermal lipids. Because of this structural similarity, Phospholipids are often called as “second skin”.

In Pharmaceuticals, there is a procedure in which the doctor uses injections with very fine needles to deliver lipolytic agents to the middle (meso) layer of your skin to tighten and rejuvenate it. This is very popular as Mesotherapy. Similar mode of action is seen in topical preparations for cellulite reduction. Phospholipids play a major active role, both as that of a lipolytic agent as as well as to enhance permeation of other actives to the middle layer of skin.

Hair Care

Healthy hair is maintained through regeneration of hair follicles by activation of multipotent epithelial stem cells residing in the outer hair root sheath. The hair cycle is comprised of a finite period of hair growth (anagen phase), a brief regression phase (catagen phase), and a resting period (telogen phase). It is regulated by sensory neurons, cytokines, growth factors (GFs), and hormones. The growth of new hair requires re-entry into the anagen phase. Phospholipids possess potent growth effects on murine hair epithelial cells, thereby inducing early telogen-to-anagen phase conversion, promoting cell growth, and elongating shafts in hair follicles. Phospholipids also combine with the proteins (keratin) of the hair and simultaneously fixate the fat-soluble hair care substances carried along leaving hair supple and conditioned.
