Lipotec Rolls Out New Molecular Film

November 30, -0001

Lipotec has launched Xpertmoist, a molecular film that contains active ingredients with a high moisturizing and regenerating effect. According to the company, this new product prevents and repairs the damage that the skin suffers in extreme conditions, which cause dramatic trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). Xpertmoist is designed to treat extreme dryness and restore skin health.

Xpertmoist can be incorporated into products where a high hydration level is required, conferring a pleasant feeling and relief for even extreme skin dryness. Its efficacy has been demonstrated with in vivo testing, where an immediate and long-lasting moisturizing effect was achieved. It also enhances plantar hyperkeratosis efficacy.

This new ingredient demonstrates the continuing growth of Lipotec’s expertise on molecular film technology. The technology used to obtain molecular films is micro-fluidization. It allows the product to pass through higher shear rates, due to an enhanced combination of the interaction chambers.

Moreover, the pressure applied to the product appears to be more appropriate with this reviewed technology.

Centerchem of Norwalk, CT is the exclusive North American distributor of Xpertmoist. Lipotec, a privately owned company founded in 1987, has a facility in Barcelona that both develops and manufactures new cosmetic actives—with a present core focus on molecular cosmetics.
