Being able to get the right ingredients delivered where you need them is key to efficacy. We utilize the latest in microsphere and liposome techniques for our delivery systems.
When dealing with encapsulation, we talk about two types of size extensions, Micrometer (um) and Nanometer (nm). A nanometer is 1000 times smaller than a Micrometer.
1 Millimeter (mm) = 1000 Micrometer (um)
1 Micrometer (um) = 1000 Nanometer (nm)
A human hair is typically between 60 – 120 um
A human skin cell is between 25 – 40 um
SalSphere™ – by Savona Technologies
SalSphere™ Technology consists of hydrophobic sub-micron spheres with a core infused with a chosen active or combination of actives and a shell that is composed of a hydrophilic layer. The microspheres enable targeted delivery to the hair follicle, forming a reservoir from which the active is slowly released, sustaining the efficacy over time. The diameter of a hair follicular orifice is estimated to be at 30 – 50 μm. SalSphere™ encapsulated microspheres, with a diameter of 0.8 μm, can facilitate penetration into the hair follicle in a targeted manner, thus increasing its efficacy
