July 12, 2022 (press release) –

Givaudan Active Beauty advances microencapsulation technology by unveiling Spherulite™ HA Ultimate, a sustainable well-ageing active ingredient able to deliver high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid (HA) to deeper skin layers thanks to vectorisation technology. Dedicated to lip care, Spherulite™ HA Ultimate demonstrates significant instant and long-term plumping benefits.  

HA is widely used in well-ageing solutions as it plays a major role in keeping skin hydrated and plumped.

The compound is commonly used clinically as a filler for fine lines and wrinkles; however, a majority of consumers remain cautious about injections.

Well-informed beauty consumers who prefer the use of skincare products formulated with HA now look for its concentration and other added values as a sign of efficient performance. 

Marina Egorova, Visuals and Vectorisation Category Manager for Active Beauty: “The advanced microencapsulation technology of Spherulite™ allows the vectorisation of HMW HA through multi-layered crystalline microcapsules. The non-ionic nature of the capsule enables it to better penetrate the upper layers of the skin to the target activity site where pure HA is slowly released for a long-lasting effect. Additionally, the new formulation of Spherulite™ HA Ultimate is high sustainable as it contains upcycled natural vitamin E and no preservatives. The Natural Origin Content of the product according to ISO 16128 is 100%.”

The performance of Spherulite™ HA Ultimate has been certified by Raman spectroscopy measurement demonstrating a penetration in the stratum corneum and the epidermis up to 50 µm. The ingredient is also clinically tested on women and demonstrates significant improvements in plumping effect, up to 12,4% after 30 minutes and 21.4% at D28. 

Would you like to give it a try? Our Active Beauty team has specially formulated an inspiring concept: The HA lip bomb. This lip treatment is a specific combination of Active Beauty hyaluronic acids from green chemistry (Spherulite™ HA Ultimate, CristalHyal® and PrimalHyal™ 300) formulated with virgin Apricot oil to hydrate and improve lip texture and definition.
