Vegan DDS Delivery System

DDS or Deep delivery system is composed of mainly phospholipids and membrane stabilizers.

It contains the right amount of penetration enhancers and edge activators that help the system reach the desired cells.

Benefits of the encapsulation Vegan DDS

Protects active against degradation

Maximum delivery of the active ingredient into the deep skin levels

Gradual delivery for longer lasting effect

Increases the bioavailability of the active ingredient

Avoids colour changes in the cosmetic product

Biomimetic nanovesicle with high moisturising and restorative action

Active encapsulated

Enoxolone, derived from licorice root, is extensively used in Chinese natural medicine for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial properties.

It inhibits the enzyme 11-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, reducing inflammation and offering benefits like preventing DNA fragmentation, itchiness in dermatitis, and promoting skin tone evenness.

Enoxolone proves to be a superior alternative to hydrocortisone in treating conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, sunburn, and hyperpigmentation.

active ingredients properties

Anti-inflamatory properties that can help to soothe and calm irritated skin

Skin brightening, helping to reduce the appearance of age spots

Anti-aging, helping to protect the skin from free radical damage

Moisturizing the skin making it softer and smoother

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.
