Phospholipids

Phospholipids are nourishing skin-identical emollients with water binding properties. They make up about 75% of the cell membranes in our skin and when applied topically, they soften skin and can assist in penetration of active ingredients. They are also used to create liposomes; sensitive actives encased in lipid shells to help improve stability and delivery.
