Phytolan

 Phytolan is a 100% vegetable alternative to Lanolin.

Dorico-Phytolan
           
  INTRODUCTION     UNSAPONIFICABLES  
 

Due to the increasing
demands in the market about not using animal origin products, an innovative product has been developed Phytolan is a 100% vegetable derivative which combine glycidic fractions of soy with shea butter unsaponificables which show some characteristics that are comparable to LANOLIN.


LIPIDS

The LIPIDS are biomolecules made of carbon,hydrogen and oxygen, physically characterized by not being water-soluble and being soluble in organic solvents. Lipids can be separated in different fractions with different physical characteristics and they can provide extremely well-defined compounds.
- They balance the hydrolipidic mantle
- They decrease the TEWL
- They improve the emollience
- They improve the skin and hair after-feeling

 

They are compounds which appear in small percentages in vegetable oils and they show some beneficial properties for humans.
- Anti-inflammatory action
- UV absorber action
- Anti-aging properties

Comparative

An initial comparison of both products gave the following preliminary results:

  Phytolan Lanolina
 
Water absorption 800% 600%
Moisturizing effect
after 20 minutes
16% 17%
Moisturizing effect
after 120 minutes
10-14% 13%
Stickiness few a lot
Melting point 38-42° C 38-44°C

 

Subsequently more extensive comparative tests were carried out between lanolin and phytolan using different types of formulations. Products were applied on 10 volunteers and they were validated for panelists. The parameters that were validated are:

- Spreadability
- Emollience
- Silkiness
- Adsorption
- Moisturizing
- Smoothness,

Phytolan is a 100% vegetable alternative to
Lanolin USP with similar or better properties
regarding to spreadability, after-feeling, structure,
brightness, film-forming, water absorption
capacity and stickiness.
Due to the only and balanced combination of
natural glycerides obtained from soy and shea
unsaponificables fractions, Phytolan is an
excellent vegetable emollient which can replace
lanolin with demonstrated advantages.
