The skin is a complex organ–the largest organ in the body–and is made up of three distinct layers. The epidermis is the outermost layer, serving as a protective barrier, both to keep harmful toxins and pollutants out as well as to hold in vital moisture and nutrients. Beneath the epidermis are the dermis and the hypodermis, where capillaries, nerve fibers, hair follicles, sebaceous glands and other important components exist.
When you apply topical skincare products, the molecules contained in their ingredients need to be able to penetrate the less active epidermis in order to reach the more active layers underneath. In some cases, however, the molecules of certain otherwise beneficial ingredients are too large to pass through the skin’s outer barrier, thus rendering them useless in a topical formula.
But now, revolutionary InterFuse™ technology developed by skinbetter science has made it possible for some of the most effective anti-aging ingredients with high molecular weights to be delivered to where they are most effective.
A Revolutionary Delivery System
InterFuse™ technology is a patented, cutting edge delivery system unlike any other. The stratum corneum, which is the outermost layer of the epidermis, is composed of dead cells containing keratin and surrounded by lipids. This matrix prevents trans-epidermal water loss in one direction and blocks penetration by external elements from the other direction. Skin care ingredients such as proteins, sugars, peptides and nucleic acids generally have difficulty penetrating this layer when they have a high molecular weight. Usually, only small molecules will pass through the barrier and they must be compatible with its lipid component. The stratum corneum more readily allows the penetration of lipid-soluble molecules than water-soluble compounds.
InterFuse™ technology utilizes a compatible, lipophilic coating to surround large molecules of active ingredients and deliver them faster, deeper and with pinpoint precision. Additionally, a skin penetration agent temporarily reduces the barrier resistance of the skin so that the lipid-friendly active ingredient can be delivered for maximum effectiveness.
Skincare that Utilizes InterFuse™ Technology
The rejuvenating collection by skinbetter science employs this innovative InterFuse™ technology to deliver some of the most effective anti-aging ingredients available in skincare. Intensive Treatment LINES takes a revolutionary no-needle approach to delivering high molecular weight, injectable-grade hyaluronic acid faster and deeper to re-volumize the appearance of skin.
Similarly, Daily Treatment Cream EYE and Daily Treatment Cream FACE also utilize this revolutionary technology to deliver a cutting-edge blend of messenger peptides to invigorate collagen, smoothing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Investing in high-quality, professional-grade skincare products that utilize cutting-edge technology like the InterFuse™ delivery system by skinbetter science can make a world of difference when it comes to the overall look and feel of your skin.
