Sustainable microencapsulated hyaluronic acid (HA) dedicated to lip care

Givaudan Active Beauty introduces Spherulite™ HA Ultimate, a sustainable well-ageing active ingredient able to deliver high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid (HA) to deeper skin layers thanks to vectorization technology

Givaudan Active Beauty advances microencapsulation technology by unveiling Spherulite™ HA Ultimate, a sustainable well-ageing active ingredient able to deliver high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid (HA) to deeper skin layers thanks to vectorization technology.
Dedicated to lip care, Spherulite™ HA Ultimate demonstrates significant instant and long-term plumping benefits.

 

HA is widely used in well-ageing solutions as it plays a major role in keeping skin hydrated and plumped. The compound is commonly used clinically as a filler for fine lines and wrinkles, however, a majority of consumers remain cautious about injections. Well-informed beauty consumers who prefer the use of skincare products formulated with HA now look for its concentration and other added values as a sign of efficient performance.

 

Marina Egorova, Visuals and Vectorization Category Manager for Active Beauty: “The advanced microencapsulation technology of Spherulite™ allows the vectorisation of HMW HA through multi-layered crystalline microcapsules. The non-ionic nature of the capsule enables it to better penetrate the upper layers of the skin to the target activity site where pure HA is slowly released for a long-lasting effect. Additionally, the new formulation of Spherulite™ HA Ultimate is sustainable as it contains upcycled natural vitamin E and no preservatives. The Natural Origin Content of the product according to ISO 16128 is 100%.”

 

The performance of Spherulite™ HA Ultimate has been certified by Raman spectroscopy measurement demonstrating a penetration in the stratum corneum and the epidermis up to 50 µm. The ingredient is also clinically tested on women and demonstrates significant improvements in plumping effect, up to 12.4% after 30 minutes and 21.4% at D28.
