Vegan CDS Delivery System

CDS Delivery system is very effective for encapsulating alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), maintaining low pH levels, reducing necessary dosage and allowing physiological pH formulations.

It contains phospholipids and ceramides that rapidly repair AHA-induced damage, enhancing skin barrier recovery and improving tolerance.

Benefits of the encapsulation Vegan CDS

Maintains the active at a low pH level until the point of delivery

Facilitates formulations at any pH level without the encapsulated acid dissociating

A smaller dose of acid is required to obtain the same amount of non-dissociated acid in the stratum corneum

Greater tolerance compared to free acids

Gradual delivery to ensure a more sustainable renewal action

Vegan CDS Delivery System

Glycolic acid, the most popular of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), has a low molecular weight, allowing it to penetrate deep skin levels.

In low concentrations, it hydrates, while higher concentrations make it a potent exfoliator, stimulating cell renewal and aiding in anti-aging, dyschromias, and acne treatment. With a pKa of 3.83, it dissociates quickly above pH 3.

Effectiveness depends on formulation pH rather than concentration, using it in too acidic mediums may cause skin irritation, making it unsuitable for sensitive areas.

Targeted delivery

Fluorescent Vegan CDS liposomes with rhodamine-labelled phospholipids (18:1 PE CF) in the membrane of the liposomes can be seen in red.

The skin was dyed with DAPI, that stains cellular nuclei with an emission maximum at 461 nm in blue.
