Naturally occurring lipid obtained from soybeans, acts as a lubricant dispersing agent and stabilizer.
Lecithin is a naturally occurring lipid found in both plants and animals. At Bellatorra we most commonly obtain it from eggs and soybeans. Lecithin and their fractions, the Phospholipids; are surfactants and also assist in the creation of cell membranes. They have very useful properties and act as emulsifiers, lubricants, dispersing agents and emollients. These properties and their physiological activity enable them to stabilize without irritating. They also prevent fat crystallization. The unique affinity of membrane lipids to the skin enhances the bioavailability of other active ingredients and provides controlled release to skin cells. They are hydrating, restructuring, film forming and soothing.
