Phytostecol is a technology that combines traditional encapsulation in liposomes with novel delivery systems. It incorporates fitosterol to their membranes for improved capsule stability and better performance in different conditions of pH.

Delivery system resembling cellular membranes, consisting of a phospholipid bilayer and inserted phytosterol molecules. These capsules show a dual-nature: (i) active, because of the presence of the hero ingredient, phytosterol, released upon capsule degradation and (ii) delivery system, because of the ability to host other actives working in synergy with phytosterol or targeting other skin concerns.


Traditional liposome-based encapsulation with phytosterol

100% stable in water up to 40ºC and between pH 3 and 10, in solutions of up to 3% ethanol and 1% surfactants

Suitable option: preferably hydrophilic in nature

Good cost/efficiency ratio

Higher resistance to extreme solution conditions
