Liquid Crystal Emulsifiers

Certain Hallstar products have the capability to create biomimetic lyotropic liquid crystals. These structures mimic the lamellar bilayer lipids structure of the human skin’s hydrolipidic film and become part of it upon application to skin, reinforcing its barrier function. These liquid crystal structures offer multiple benefits to personal care product formulations including improved moisturization, sensoriality and product stability.

Multiple clinical tests also confirm the benefits of these liquid crystal forming products in areas as diverse as water-soluble active delivery, increased skin hydration and skin feel and aesthetics enhancement. Individual products are specifically designed to enable the formulation of the wide variety of product forms, esthetics and performance needed to address specific market requirements.
