CelluCap™ R is an encapsulated Retinol that is easily released upon mechanical pressure such as a rubbing action. CelluCap R is non-nano, preservative free and free from BHT, BHA and microplastics.
Retinol is highly recognized as a very effective vitamin for anti- aging treatment due to its capacity to stimulate collagen production, accelerate cell reproduction and normalize skin keratinization. Its regular application significantly improves skin elasticity, smoothness, and softness, resulting in younger, clearer and healthier looking skin.
Nevertheless, Retinol is highly sensitive to oxidation, degradation in the presence of air, sunlight, acidic conditions and heavy metals which results in decreased efficacy and formula discoloration. Tagra Biotechnologies overcomes these challenges with CelluCap R. Through delivering stabilized pure Retinol in a microencapsulation, Tagra helps to improve the performance and shelf life of the final formula.
