DEERFIELD, Ill.May 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Vantage, a leading global supplier of naturally derived specialty ingredients and formulations, has been granted U.S. Patent No. 11,612,557 for lyophilic colloids. The new technology is a topical delivery system for active and functional ingredients and is intended for use in the fields of personal care, dermatology and other branches of medicine.

The patented lyophilic colloid technology enables formulators to create a blend of active ingredients using glycerin and hyaluronic acid. The suspension improves the rheology and feel of glycerin, making it a more desirable carrier for actives. Glycerin, a well-known hydrating ingredient for skin, is typically used at low levels in a formulation due to its sticky texture. The new technology enables reduced water-content and substantially anhydrous lyophilic colloids made of both glycerin and hyaluronic acid to replace water as a carrier. The suspension allows for higher glycerin content, which when combined with the blend's hyaluronic acid, can provide extra moisturizing properties that are highly sought after by customers in luxury cream markets.
“We are committed to expand our presence in the European marketplace and our presence at IntAIRCOAT 2023 provides us with an opportunity to introduce our range of qualified aerospace products to an international audience. Our product line is well-established in the United States, and we look forward to broadening the scope of our technical solutions in this important aerospace market.”
