COVER STORY: LIPOID Liposome C Eco: innovative natural product

Encapsulation of cosmetic active ingredients in skin-friendly particles potentiates their skin interaction and results in a superior and long-lasting cosmetic effect. LIPOID Liposome C Eco is an innovative natural product containing ascorbyl glucoside (2-O-alphaD-glucopyranosyl-L-ascorbic acid), a derivative of Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, neutralizing and removing harmful free radical molecules and enhancing collagen formation. It inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase, thereby reducing melanogenesis and counteracting skin hyperpigmentation.1 Ascorbyl glucoside is converted into ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) in the skin, providing a long-lasting cosmetic effect.2

LIPOID Liposome C Eco combines the cosmetic benefits of ascorbyl glucoside with the excellent skin penetrating and rejuvenating properties of phospholipids and liposomes.3 The liposomes of LIPOID Liposome C Eco comprise unsaturated phospholipids, which condition the stratum corneum for optimal cosmetic effects.3 The structure of phospholipid molecules and phospholipid vesicles (liposomes) are provided in Figure 1.

Phospholipids are highly versatile materials offering both technical and physiological benefits for cosmetic formulations. They number among the body’s own building blocks and are essential constituents of the human cell membrane. These compounds are therefore highly biocompatible and benign, and hence pre-destined for use in superior high-end skincare products. Owing to their amphiphilic nature and their ability to interact with human skin, phospholipids can serve as active ingredients for skin protection and skin rejuvenation, as carrier systems for cosmetic active ingredients, and as skin-friendly emulsifier systems.
