FSS Ursolic Acid Liposome PF
Preserved with Leucidal Liquid
Touted as the “New Retinol,” Ursolic Acid not only stimulates the production
and restoration of collagen, it also increases
the ceramide content of human keratinocytes. Increasing collagen synthesis, and
restoration, while simultaneously improving the ceramide content, makes Ursolic
Acid an ideal ingredient for decreasing the appearance of wrinkles on the skin.
FSS Ursolic Acid Liposome PF was
created for use in personal care products to enhance the delivery
of this potent, soothing, anti-aging active to the skin.
Ursolic Acid is a natural, pentacylic triterpenoid carboxylic acid. This
phytochemical is traditionally used as a major component in medicinal herbs, as
it is known to improve the health of the skin. High concentrations of Ursolic
Acid are present in most edible plants, particularly fruits and herbs such as
apples, rosemary, thyme, Eriobotya japonicacalli, and Mallotus
When used in personal care formulations, Ursolic Acid has been shown to
reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Wrinkle reduction is attributed to Ursolic
Acid’s ability to increase the content of collagen by increasing collagen
production by the skin’s fibroblast cells in the dermis.
Over-exposure to environmental stress, specifically UV radiation, is
known to weaken elastin and collagen fibers in the skin, resulting in saggy
skin, aged with dark spots. Ursolic Acid can help enhance the synthesis of
elastin, while diminishing the appearance of dark spots, further contributing
to the anti-aging benefits of this active. In addition to dark spots, exposure
to UV radiation can result in burnt, puffy skin. Ursolic Acid acts as an
anti-inflammatory agent, promoting the production of pro-inflammatory enzymes
responsible for soothing the skin after photo-exposure has occurred.
Furthermore, Ursolic Acid increases the ceramide content of the skin. Youthful
skin consists of high concentrations of ceramides, however, the presence of
ceramides diminishes exponentially as the skin ages. Ceramides provide a
natural moisture barrier on the skin, thus keeping the skin from looking
dehydrated or saggy. Ursolic Acid also works to diminish the appearance of
aging by increasing blood circulation, in turn, enhancing the production of new
incorporating FSS Ursolic Acid Liposome PF into personal care skin
products, formulators can capitalize on the anti-aging benefits attributed to
Ursolic Acid. The encapsulation of Ursolic Acid in a liposome ensures enhanced
delivery of the active and increased stability within the formulation. FSS Ursolic
Acid Liposome PF is an ideal material to help diminish the appearance of
wrinkles and dark spots, while increasing the presence of ceramides, to reveal
healthy, youthful-looking skin.
