One of the main functions of the skin is to act as a barrier. This makes the products applied on healthy skin to have limited penetration capacity. From the deep knowledge of the biophysics and physiology of the skin tissue, a new skin delivery technology has been developed.

The Bicosomes® have been inspired by the structures of transport of the skin itself, the Odland bodies, and mimic them in structure, composition and function. Due to these biomimetic characteristics the Bicosomes® can penetrate and interact with the deeper layers of the skin, without the use of chemical enhancers and any other strategy that causes damage to the skin. In this talk, we will explain this new technology and all its potentialities for skin and haircare.
