Introducing RETISOME - A New liposomal delivery system for Retinol
The use of vitamins in cosmeceuticals, especially Tocopherols (Vitamin
E), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), and Retinol (Vitamin A) is severely
limited due to their high oxidative instability in topical formulations.
Retinol is the primary naturally occurring form of Vitamin A and is
particularly known for its anti-aging properties.
Clinical signs of skin aging such as wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, skin
dehydration, laxity and epidermal thinning are associated with
chronological aging, individual genetics and environmental stress. These
clinical features of intrinsic and extrinsic aging are often avoidable.
The anti-aging effects of topically applied Retinol have been confirmed
in a large number of clinical studies. Retinol has shown to increase
biological elasticity of the skin, stimulate collagen synthesis, improve
skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At the
molecular level, Retinol accelerates mitosis, induces cellular gene
expression, increases enzyme activity and promotes keratinocyte
proliferation. This cell renewal process leads to visible and luminous
transformation of the skin.
