Why Dr. Baumann Cosmetics uses Multilamellar Liposomes?
What are Multilamellar Liposomes
A liposome is an artificially-prepared vesicle composed of a lipid bilayer. The liposomes are used as a vehicle for administration of nutrients and pharmaceutical drugs. Liposomes are composed of natural phospholipids, and may also contain mixed lipid chains with surfactant properties The major types of liposomes are the multilamellar vesicle (MLV), the small unilamellar vesicle (SUV), the large unilamellar vesicle (LUV), and the cochleate vesicle.
Liposomes are both an active substance and an excipient of active substances. They are related to the skin and perform an important moisture dispensing function. The lipid building blocks of multilamellar liposomes come from nature and occur as components of the skin. This is the basis for particularly good compatibility They are therefore in a position to transport other skin friendly active substances (such as vitamin E, A and provitamin B5) into the skin.
Due to it’s compatibility and Skin Penetration properties Dr Baumann does not use chemical preservatives or perfumes due to the risk caused by the transporting function of the multilamellar liposomes.
Studies have shown that a twice a day application of multilamellar liposomes can greatly boost the
skin’s moisture content within a short period of time. These findings have been documented in scientific publications such as “Haut und Liposome”(Skin and Liposomes). B Dr. Ghyczy
et al (1992). And “beeinfussungnder Hautfecuhtigkeit Durch Liposomen”‘. (Influencing the moisture of the skin through the use of liposomes) In the journal SoFW..
Liposomes work better when they transport nutrients to the skin; therefore they are ideally used with a moisturizer and/or a serum.
