Vegan DDS 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 DDS

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

Active encapsulated

Cysteamine, a naturally occurring aminothiol in the human body, acts as an antioxidant derived from Coenzyme A degradation.

Recent studies demonstrate its efficacy as a potent skin depigmenting agent.

Cysteamine has been proven effective, safe, and well tolerated for treating melasma.

It compares favorably to established depigmenting therapies, offering higher tolerability.

However, historically it has been known for its offensive odor and rapid oxidation which can be solved with encapsulation in Vegan DDS nanovesicles.

active ingredients properties

Inhibition of melanin production, which addresses hyperpigmentation

Potent antioxidant action

Improves skin tone

Gentle on the skin, minimal irritation

Sustained penetration

The sustainable and progressive delivery study over 24 h of the Vegan DDS system

Using a model analyte (ethyl ascorbic acid)

Human skin explants

Application of the sample containing ethyl ascorbic acid encapsulated into Vegan DDS liposomes

Epidermal concentration of the active at different times

Determined using HPLC-RC after extraction from the human epidermis

DDS by INdermal nanovesicles are ideal for the cosmetic application of active ingredients which require a progressive and sustained delivery over time in the epidermal layer

Targeted delivery

Fluorescent Vegan DDS 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.
