Ultra Thin Molecular Films

Active-loaded thin functional layers with semi-occlusive properties.

Made of vegetal polymers, this novel delivery system guarantees the stability of actives without oxidizing and enhances their cutaneous absorption. This particular administration system, called molecular film, is a thin functional layer that easily extends over the epidermis favoring cutaneous absorption of the actives.

Its solubility in oil made it a very occlusive system apart from the inherent benefits to the encapsulated actives themselves, a significant hydration profile that becomes apparent through trans-epidermal water loss techniques (TEWL – Trans-Epidermal Water Loss). The particular rheology of molecular films allows for the extension of monolayers of functional ingredients on the skin, which are absorbed through the stratum corneum with ease.
