Description
Description
High-dose, encapsulated vitamin A (retinol) formulated to improve skin penetration. Stability is 30-55% better than pure non-encapsulated retinol if stored as raw solution as well as in a cream at 20oC and 45oC. Activity: 1g contains about >3’000’000 IU pure retinol. Particle size of liposomes is 300-500nm.
Benefits
  • Anti-wrinkle and anti-aging properties
  • Protects vitamin A (retinol) in creams from undesirable degradation and loss of function
  • Liposomes enable delivery of a high concentration of pure retinol (> 3,000,000 IU/g) to the deeper skin layers due to easy skin penetration
Use
Incorporate into emulsion products at room temperature or below 30°C/86°F typically added at the end of the emulsion process. 1g contains about 3 Mio IU. Typical use level is 0.1 to up to 3%. When adding 1% to 100g of cream, the final retinol concentration will be 30,000 IU per 1g of cream which is a high concentration of retinol ideal for the aging skin. For external use only.
Applications
Anti-aging creams, lotions, & gels, sun care & after sun products.

Proposition 65
Under California's Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, better known as OEHHA Prop 65, we are required to place a warning to this product since the OEHHA believes that retinol/retinyl esters may cause reproductive harm (e.g. interference in female/male reproduction or embryonal development), when used in daily dosages in excess of 10,000 IU or 3,000 retinol equivalents. Importantly, retinol/retinyl esters are still required and essential for maintenance of normal reproductive function. Recommended daily level during pregnancy is 8000 IU. WARNING: This product contains retinol/retinyl esters with >10,000 IU, a chemical known to the State of California to cause reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
