RetiStar is a stabilized retinol in an oily dispersion. Traditionally, retinols in formulation require the use of inert gas technology during manufacturing and packaging for its stability. The ratio and absolute concentration of the triglyceride, sodium ascorbate and tocopherol is well balanced to achieve maximum stability of retinol in cosmetic emulsions. Retinol is an active ingredient in sophisicated cosmetic skin care products. It is a highly effective substance for the care of aging skin and it protects against photo-aging. Most signs of skin aging - wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, loss of elasticity - are avoidable.
Retinol increases the mitotic activity and normalizes the enzyme activity of keratinocytes, thus improving the epithelization of the skin. Retinol improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps to normalize the physiology of the epidermis. This leads to an improved barrier function and helps retain skin moisture. Retinol has a normalizing effect on skin pigmentation.
Retinol not only improves the appearance of existing wrinkles, it also helps to prevent wrinkles. Recent studies have shown that retinoids counteract the physiological processes that actually lead to wrinkled, photoaged skin.
RetiStar can be simply added to the cosmetic emulsion at lower temperatures. It has been successfully used in a pH range of 5.5 to 8 in oil-in-water emulsions. The emulsion should be filled into a light and oxygen-impermeable packaging.
The recommended use level is 1% which results in a final retinol concentration of 0.05%. At this concentration, it delivers the adequate amount of technical antioxidants to the formulation. The use of additional antioxidants might lead to a decreased stability of retinol and is not recommended. Incompatibilites have been observed with ascorbyl palmitate and titanium dioxide.
