French cosmetic active ingredient producer Sederma has launched ReVitAlide, a lipid submicron particle carrying 3% active retinol.
The company says the so-called hero encapsulated retinol is a water dispersible suspension designed to respond to market demand for stable, easy-to-formulate, highly bioavailable and well-tolerated retinol.
This encapsulated form developed in collaboration with Inventiva (part of Croda International) features an improved stability of retinol as well as high skin bioavailability.
Clinical evaluation showed good skin tolerance when using ReVitAlide, says Sederma.
It reduces wrinkle appearance and prevents their formation, the company adds.
The IECIC compliant ingredient is also a sustainable ingredient: 95.5% natural origin content, 100% readily biodegradable in 28 days, RSPO approved, room temperature storage.
