XALIFIN-15®(INCI: Polyglyceryl-8 C12-20 Acid Ester) by Vevy acts as an O/W and W/O emulsifier as well as solubilizer. It is the most hydrophilic of known emulsifiers. XALIFIN -15 is used in o/w emulsions for healthy, roughened or irritated skin.
XALIFIN-15® is the first and innovative emulsifier nontoxic for skin enzymes (Bioemulgoid) for dermo-pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. An effective, powerful and safe answer to your emulsifying problems. With Xalifin-15 creams and lotions stay stable, even with the most difficult materials to emulsify.
The emulsions that are obtained through XALIFIN-15® can safely be used on sensitive or irritated skin as well as on skin suffering from various dermatological conditions, and on the skin of babies which is often subject to local reactivity.
Formulations of liquid and solid O/W emulsions containing:
- Polar and non-polar lipids;
- Strong electrolytes;
- Wide range of pharmaceutical and cosmetic actives.
The obtained O/W emulsions will be:
- Very stable
- Easily spreadable
- Smooth skin feel
- High Compatibility
- Excellent Release ability
Excellent penetration through intact skin. Studies with radioisotopes, fluoresceine and diffusion tests on agar plate demonstrate faster spread of sulfa drugs incorporated in a Xalifin-15®formulated emulsion, rather than in a common O/W emulsion.
ABSORPTION PROPERTIES - STUDY WITH RADIOISOTOPES
35 subjects, equal quantities of emulsion, restricted area of the skin (surface of the left forearm).
