TECHNOLOGYHydroxysomes®COMPATIBLE WITH ALL BIOACTIVESNON
RELEASENO NEED FORPENETRATIONENHANCERS
• 88% of all API drugs and consumer bio-actives currently do not have any dermal delivery options other than Hydroxysomes® due to incompatible chemistries, molecular weight limitations, or instability issues
• Issued Hydroxysome® patents on core technology and applications provide a unique and defensible competitive advantage.
Patches; Liposomes; Encapsulation; Devices, and others:
• Damaging – Adhesive can irritate skin; often use penetration enhancers
• Limiting – Potent drugs with low daily dosage; may have formulation challenges
• Inefficient – Small % delivered; excessive loss of API/Active
• Hydroxysomes® is co-engineered with active and formulated into conventional topical products, e.g. creams, ointments, lotions.
• Upon application, it functions in essence as a “patchless patch” to implement and facilitate enhanced uptake by the skin, and to release high yield active.
Sustained Release Skin Delivery:
• Hydroxysomes® are not stable at pH below 5: release of API Active is controlled by stratum corneum acidic pH.
• Active continues to pass through to the lower epidermis, and/or dermis, and/or systemic flow-through, depending on the characteristics of the active.
• Hydroxysomes® particles remain localized in stratum corneum; calcium and
phosphates ions of Hydroxysomes® are slowly absorbed as micronutrients by the skin.
