Infinity Ingredients is the UK distributor of Biophilic™ from IFF Lucas Meyer Cosmetics.
Biophilic™ is a patented natural and Cosmos certified lamellar O/W system based on the emulsifying properties of Phospholipids combined with vegetable Lipids. The lamellar emulsion mimics the lipid structure of the Stratum Corneum for perfect affinity. It acts as a “second skin” and helps restore the cutaneous barrier of damaged skin.
Two grades exist: Biophilic™ H MB (hydrogenated Lecithin) and Biophilic™ S MB (non-hydrogenated Lecithin - a chelating agent and antioxidant is required). The emulsion melts on the skin during the application and forms a restructuring film which reduces TEWL.

- What is the added value of using phospholipid based emulsifiers ?
Phospholipids have been used in the cosmetic industry for many years and are a major component of all cell membranes. Their high skin tolerance and strong attraction to the stratum corneum has significant impact on their protective and hydration properties. They also improve bioavailability of active ingredients to get better and faster results making them more than just an emulsifier. We like to think of them as functional actives. Phospholipid based emulsifiers provide a unique and sophisticated skin feel with a wide range of textures from sprays to creams.
