InnoSolve™ DMI series Dimethyl IsosorbideJuly 2, 2015
InnoSolve™ DMI series enhance the penetration of actives through the epidermis layer of skin, enabling targeted delivery for products such as self-tanners, make-up removers and anti-acne treatments, etc. Not only does it reduce skin irritation, but it also lowers the required concentration level of aggressive active agents such as salicylic acid, vitamin C, lactic acid, hydrocortisone and hyaluronic acid, serving to reduce the formulation cost of the finished product. Other product advantages include improved shelf stability (particularly those formulations susceptible to hydrolysis or trans-esterification), miscibility with most organic solvents and non-ionic surfactants, and compatibility with many product forms including clear gels. InnoSolve™ DMI series are able to transport water-soluble actives into the skin, without recrystallization of the actives and can be formulated with standard equipment, without the need for special materials handling such as flammables. Most importantly, it does not promote penetration of the ingredients into the bloodstream. All these properties of InnoSolve™ DMI series make a potential choice for transdermal or topical drug delivery for a variety of drugs.
