New unique microencapsulated stabilised retinol
Givaudan Active Beauty unveils Spherulite™ R10 with faster and superior anti-ageing clinical efficacy compared to free retinol
Givaudan Active Beauty launches Spherulite™ R10, a groundbreaking solution to use retinol in a more stable and efficient way for skincare. Crafted with the Spherulite™ technology, Spherulite™ R10 demon- strates faster and superior anti-ageing clinical efficacy compared to free retinol.
Ageing effects lead men and women to find efficient solutions to get rid of wrinkles. The most well-known ingredient to reverse sign of ageing, retinol is a golden standard despite being very difficult to stabilise in formula. With no surprise, it is one of the most requested ingredients when it’s time to deal with wrinkles. Globally, one in four consumers are looking for retinol in their skincare products.
Marina Egorova, Category Manager Active Beauty, said: “The advanced microencapsulation technology of Spherulite™ R10 allows the protection and stabilisation of retinol in the multi-layered crystalline microcapsules, bringing solutions to all formulators of retinol products. The non-ionic nature of these capsules enable a better penetration into the skin where the retinol is slowly released, thus preventing any adverse reactions such as irritation.”
Far more stable than free retinol in formulation and twice more stable than other benchmark encapsulated retinol, Spherulite™ R10 enables Vitamin A to have a better bioavailability into the epidermis. When compared to free retinol in a double blind versus placebo clinical trial, Spherulite™ R10 demonstrated quicker and superior rejuvenating results than free retinol with a significant decrease of crow’s feet wrin- kles (-11.1% in one month) and of the volume of nasolabial wrinkles (-37.3% in 2 months).
Over 70% of volunteers have seen a visible effect on wrinkles and felt their skin more plumped after using this microencapsulated retinol, validating that Spherulite™ R10 brings a solution for consumers of all beauty brands who seek to win the battle against wrinkles.
To inspire the beauty industry, our formulation experts crafted S3D® PoweR-10, the first micro-vectorised retinol anti-ageing night cream. Featuring Spherulite™ R10, it will help treat wrinkles softly and carefully. Fresh and light, the cream penetrates quickly into the skin without leaving any excess or sticky effect. The experience is what we called the “vectorised youth therapy”.
