Swiss cosmetic actives maker Rahn has entered into a partnership with Laboratoires Eriger, a French developer of vectorisation technology.
The agreement will give Rahn exclusive distribution responsibility for the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland and Germany.
Laboratoires Eriger’s PhytoVec technology leverages the capabilities of chlorophyll to vectorise a large spectrum of active molecules at high concentration by encapsulation in water.
This guarantees stability and long-term protection of sensitive active molecules such as vitamins and polyphenols.
“The PhytoVec format provides protection against UV and oxidation that is far superior to that of liposomes,” said Rahn.
“The PhytoVec vectorisation has proven its performance on many active ingredients, including the powerful yet challenging Vitamin A,” it added.
“With this technology, Laboratoires Eriger is proud to offer a range of standard products as well as tailor-made solutions with cosmetic brands and active ingredient manufacturers.”
