What are DehydraSomes?

We use Organic DehydraSome to deliver Organic phospholipids which attract water, locking in moisture to rehydrate and plump the skin. Organic DehydraSomes consist of certified organic phospholipids that are dispersed in biomimetic Certified Organic sunflower oil.

How do DehydraSomes work?

When Dehydrasomes are applied to the skin, the hydrophilic portions of the phospholipids naturally migrate to hydrophilic environments where they assemble into a multivesicular system. The moisture in our skin causes these vesicles to swell and minimize the appearance of fine lines or plump the lips. Because the vesicles penetrate the stratum corneum and bind with the moisture present, they can inhibit trans‐epidermal water loss (TEWL) to increase moisturisation. The Dehydrasomes also enhance the delivery of the active extracts. 

The mineral Silica is used as the Delivery System for the Dehydrasomes due to it's fine particle size. This mineral is critical for strong and healthy skin. It helps build collagen // smooths fine lines // heals inflammation // renews cells.

What are Phospholipids?

Phospholipids are comprised of two types of fatty acid. That puts them in the lipid family, a broad group of naturally-occurring molecules which includes fats, waxes, sterols, fat-soluble vitamins (such as vitamins A, D, E and K). The main biological functions of lipids include energy storage, as structural components of cell membranes, and as important signaling molecules.

Phospholids are described as having heads and tails, the 'head' of a phospholipid is hydrophilic [attracted to water], while the hydrophobic 'tails' repel water. This means that they attract water and hold on to it. Hello moisturizer!

The heads and tails organize themselves into bio-layers that gives them a structure similar to that of skin. Because of this it is said that products that contain them have an affinity with the skin and high tolerance. Phospholipids retain their structure when applied and because of this is sometimes called a “second skin”. 

Extracts incorporated into our Dehydrasomes

YOGURT - is a Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) derived ingredient capable of enhancing cellular renewal while simultaneously optimizing hydration levels. LAB is a principal member of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) family, and has been shown to break down the skin's lipids, exfoliating the skin. AHA’s have obtained the approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as agents capable of penetrating the skin’s barrier to increase the turnover rate of cells and decrease the skin’s thickness.

LECITHIN [from soya beans] helps to: 

  • Penetration Enhancer: It alters the skin structure allowing other substances to penetrate deeper.
  • Antioxidant: It helps to repair free radical damage, soothing inflamed, irritated skin.
  • Hydrophilic ingredient: It attracts water to the skin, working to prevent moisture loss from deep within the skin tissues.
  • Moisturising: It is very moisturising, which is due to its high levels of oleic and linoleic acid.
CRANBERRY - Extracts are unique sources of potent antioxidants. 
  • High in Antioxidants - It can protect skin from oxidative damage, slow down aging and also has antiseptic as well as soothing properties. Due to its specific composition, cranberry extract is an effective and suitable active ingredient for dry, mature and damaged skin. Its natural desinfecting effect can help oily and impure skin.
  • Contains Proanthocyanidins - also known as proanthocyanidins or condensed tannins, Proanthocyanidins are rarely in other fruit and vegetable
  • Rich in Vitamins - A, E especially from the B group
  • Rich in Antioxidants - Anthocyanin, hippuric acid, catechins and vacciniin
  • Rich in Minerals - Including iron, magnesium, copper and zinc. All of these nutrients play essential roles in cellular metabolism. 
BLUEBERRY - The fruit contains vitamin A along with chemicals known as anthocyanosides, plant pigments with excellent antioxidant properties that help to prevent or reverse damage to cells caused by free radicals.
  • Rich in antioxidants - Which have a preventive action against free radicals
  • Helps facilitate the delivery of oxygen-rich blood - To all layers of the skin. This also helps the skin receive other nutrients that help maintain its elasticity and suppleness, including oil-moisture balance.
  • Skin-conditioning - Agent that helps nourish the skin and increases its vitality revitalizing the skin, hasten healing and make the skin have an overall glow. 
BILLLBERRY - Extract skin benefits include: 
  • Defense against premature aging
  • Preventive action of antioxidants
  • Helps facilitate the delivery of oxygen-rich blood to all layers of the skin. This also helps the skin receive other nutrients that help maintain its elasticity and suppleness, including oil-moisture balance.
  • Acts as a skin-conditioning agent that helps nourish the skin and increases its vitality.
  • Rich in chemicals known as anthocyanosides, plant pigments with excellent antioxidant properties that help to prevent or reverse damage to cells caused by free radicals. 

We have incorporated Certified Organic Dehydrasomes [Yougurt & Berries] into - Superb Serum [face] to take advantage of the ability to enhance cellular renewal while simultaneously optimizing skin hydration levels and delivering potent antioxidants.
