Nanotechnology is the science and technology of materials at the nanometer scale. It refers to the emerging set of tools, techniques and unique applications involving the structure and composition of materials at the near atomic, or nanometer level. A nanometer (nm) is a unit of length equivalent to a billionth of a meter, or a millionth of a millimeter. For example, an average human hair is 80,000 nanometers in width. Designing and creating materials at the nano-scale, such as a nano-capsule, leads to products that achieve exceptional performance. A nano-capsule is any nano-particle that consists of a shell and a space, in which desired ingredients may be placed and delivered to the skin cells.
As part of continuing efforts to introduce the most advanced beauty products, we have introduced NanoVeraŽ Intensive Skin Therapy Cream in 2008 in the USA and it has been sold very successfully since then.
“This is very exciting news to our industry,” exclaims Dr. Lina Twaian, the VP of Sales and one of the Managing Directors of Mediderm Laboratories.
“All of my extensive knowledge and experience of the past years in the skin care industry as led up to this moment. We have worked overtime on this project and it took over 3 years to be completed, it’s the most advanced skin care product that has ever been created. Our patented technologies are extremely hard to duplicate. The impact of NanoActives, which use SlowRelease nano-technology for controlled delivery, is groundbreaking. We’ve created a range of products with advanced DeepHydration and SlowRelease nano-technologies and continue making long-term investments in their future. Mediderm Laboratories is changing the nature of things – one nano-particle at a time.”
To ensure effectiveness of NanoActive ingredients, the transport of these components to the “place of action“ is a crucial challenge. The stratum corneum, the outermost skin layer is known for its impermeability due to the chemical and physical barrier function. Only molecules smaller than 500 nm could penetrate the skin, depending on their chemical structure. Therefore traditional cosmetics formulators try to use permeation enhancers in their formulations to increase the dermal transport of active ingredients. These enhancers act in disturbing the barrier by partly solubilizing or extracting the skin lipids. NanoVera® uses NanoActives to accomplish this feat. The end result is a cream that does not irritate the skin, yet is able to deliver the active ingredients to needed areas.
Liposomes are also used in traditional dermal applications as a protective carrier system for active ingredients. To big to actually enter the skin, they tear the skin surface, carrying actives to the target site below the torn areas. Liposomes have limited use in commercial products, due to limited retention, sensitive to surfactants, temperature changes, pH levels and mixing with other ingredients
NanoVera® Intensive Skin Therapy is different from the traditional delivery systems currently available in that it uses the patent pending SlowRelease and DeepHydration nano-technologies to deliver the worlds best Aloe Vera, peptides, alpha lipoic acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Vitamin E directly to the portions of the skin that need it.
NanoVera’s® ingredients, effects and specifications:
--Compatible in most water based formulations
--Allows for better penetration of the ingredients to reach the basal layer or dividing cells for targeted release
--The encapsulation minimizes the irritating upon application on skin due to SlowRelease and DeepHydration. The cream passes through the outer layers of the skin -- it doesn’t tear up the skin.
--Enhances therapy thru long lasting release.
--Repairs and rejuvenates the skin cells at the cellular level
--Exfoliates at the cellular level
--Tightens the skin muscles, called the corrugators, to achieve an “instant facelift”
--Destroys free radicals and the effects of UV rays on your skin, which slows the aging process
--Evens the skin’s tone by eliminating dark spots and circles over time
--Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
--Reverses the signs of aging immediately and over time
