I have received so many interesting questions since the inclusion of Ask Mukti on our website and it’s great to see that so many people are asking lots of questions before purchasing and applying products to their skin. One such person is Amy from Parramatta in New South Wales who asked ..
“I have heard that more mature women should be using skin care containing liposomes. Do you include liposomes in your products and what is their function and benefit?”
Great question Amy! Firstly, a liposome is a microscopic capsule or sphere which acts as a delivery system to transfer active skincare ingredients directly to live cells within the skin. Not only is delivery of the active ingredients very specific into the intended cell membranes, but the delivery is slow-release and takes place over a longer period of time.
Liposomes are found as a component of many different treatments, unfortunately, too many Companies choose to use liposomes derived from animal cells and tissue.
The plant based liposomes utilised in our Mukti Botanicals formulations are derived from advanced, natural fatty acids found in the cells and tissue of various plants. These microscopic capsules deliver the most effective concentration of selected and active ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, hydration and critical nourishment directly to live skin cells and deep within the skin layers where they can do the most good. (See diagram)
Liposome skin treatments can be highly effective in rejuvenating aging skin and aiding in the repair of a variety of aging skin issues. Our liposomes provide skin cells with potent and 100% natural anti-aging ingredients and nourishment which is necessary to promote collagen and elastin production, rejuvenate the skin by improving and maintaining hydration, reduce fine lines, diminish deeper wrinkles and improve overall skin texture, firmness and appearance.
I love receiving and addressing any of your questions and look forward to many more!
