The effect of saturated phospholipids on human skin

D. Gutekunst, 2018

 

The effect of saturated phospholipids on human skin assessed with shotgun lipidomic analysis

 

How deep can drugs penetrate into your skin?

We presented our new skin penetration study with saturated phospholipids at the 11th PBP world meeting, on 22 March, 2018 in Granada.

The Phospholipid Research Center and Lipoid GmbH tracked topically applied phospholipids among other skin lipids – with the help of Lipotype lipidomics.

Many dermatological products contain phospholipids whose properties change with their saturation. Saturated lipids are gel-like at body temperature, while unsaturated lipids are more liquid. This influences drug delivery and interactions with skin.
