Lipsome

The unique technology behind LIPO-SACHETS®

Liposomes are tiny, sphere-shaped carriers that resemble cells in the human body.
High quality liposomes act as stable vessels, encapsulating and protecting the active ingredients (vitamins) from being degraded by substances within the body’s digestive system, such as digestive enzymes, oxygen or interaction with other medications.

This allows for the targeted release of the vitamin at locations in the body where it is required most, resulting in optimised absorption without gastric upsets.

Vitamin C Technology

LIPOSHELL® vitamin C liposome:

  1. Vitamin C in the water containing region of the liposome
  2. Double phospholipid barrier which encapsulates and protects the vitamin C
Vitamin D Technology

LIPOSHELL® vitamin D liposome:

  1. Phospholipid bilayer – biocompatible with human cell membranes
  2. Vitamin D suspended in a phospholipid bilayer

The benefits of LIPOSHELL® technology

Inspired by molecular dynamics and the result of many years of development by European scientists, LIPO-SACHETS® patented LIPOSHELL® technology delivers precisely designed, targeted release liposomes for optimised absorption.

LIPOSHELL® liposomes are characterised by their tiny, homogeneous size: they have a very small diameter of 170 ±15% nanometres for Vitamin C, and 120 ±15% nanometres for Vitamin D, which assists with their absorption.

LIPOSHELL® liposomes are manufactured in compliance with high quality standards, using innovative manufacturing processes. They are biocompatible, non-toxic and have high structural stability, which enables prolonged and stable encapsulation of the vitamins inside the liposomes.
