Liposomes are tiny artificially prepared bubbles made up of a lipid bilayer that are used to deliver ingredients in the body. They can be composed of naturally-derived phospholipids which mimic the properties of biological cells.
These spherical structures are useful because they can encapsulate active ingredients and are therefore used in skin care and for drug delivery. Liposomes effectively deliver the active ingredients to the sites of action by fusing with the similarly structured biological cells.
Liposomes are used as an advanced soy-based Phospholipid delivery system that encapsulates active ingredients and enables them to reach the targeted cells for superior product performance. The development of this patent pending micro-emulsion skincare technology called Alphasomes® has led to the accurate and effective delivery of valuable, yet volatile active anti-aging ingredients that penetrate deep into the skin's tissue, releasing the ingredients where they can provide the most benefit. Liposomes with Ginkgo Biloba Extract and Peptides, combined in an enriched anti-aging serum such as G.S. Ginkgosome® Day Time Serum can provide immediate, visible improvement in skin tone, texture and firmness.
Liposomes are good for any skin type and in general they help reduce wrinkles, hide lines and dramatically enhance the moisture retaining capacity of the skin.
