Skintifique has developed Activifique, a novel, safe and effective way to deliver active ingredients to the skin. Active ingredients have properties that moisturize, protect, preserve or improve skin.
This technology allows a very high effectiveness of ingredients used in a skincare product, and a long-term activity. This is due to the fact that Activifique allows a controlled release of the ingredients.
Unlike in standard products, beneficial ingredients are delivered over time to the skin. In some circumstances, the beneficial agents are even activated when the skin most needs them, and less active, when the skin needs them less.
How does Activifique work?
In products that include the Activifique approach, ingredients are made to form supramolecular assemblies organized in leaflets, inspired from biological systems (such as skin).
These structures not only confer a soft texture but most importantly they dissolve slowly or when they receive special signals from the skin. As a consequence, unlike in standard creams, the active agents penetrate the skin at a rate that makes it possible for skin cells and layers to benefit the most from their moisturizing, soothing and other activities.
