Introduction

Retinol is a highly effective topical vitamin A treatment, a potent antioxidant
promoting cellular turnover and epidermal renewal. It’s useful for treating and
eliminating the wide range of skin aging and pigmentation conditions. It’s
essentially one of the best anti-aging ingredients for maintaining youthful skin.

The Results of MultiSal® Retinol

A study done with lotion containing 0.2% retinol (n=5) has
shown visual improvement in fine lines reduction within
2 weeks. MS Retinol is effective at low concentrations of
retinol (0.1-0.2%).

Retinol is used to reduce wrinkles, brighten and tone the skin.

Enhanced Shelf Life Stability

The stability of MS RT (0.1% retinol) was compared to that of free retinol in lotions. After 50 days at 42°C, HPLC analysis revealed that the encapsulation technology facilitated retention of 80% of the retinol while the free only retained 5% of initial record.

Amount of retinol retained in lotions containing MultiSal® technology versus the free. Amount of retinol was detected using HPLC after incubating the sample at 42°C for 50 days.

Controlled Release

MS RT enables slow, controlled release of retinol on skin, allowing for better absorption.

Percent of retinol retained on the skin after application from a product containing 0.5% retinol from MultiSal® versus free over four hours. The release rate of MS RT technology was four times slower than that of the free.
