INCI – Dimethyl Isosorbide
Epidev (penetration enhancer) is a combination of naturally sourced high purity solvents and carrier which offers a safe, effective delivery enhancement mechanism for active ingredients in personal care formulations. In addition to improving the performance of actives, its use as an epidermal penetration enhancer may allow formulators to reduce the amount of actives required to achieve effects, resulting in reduced formulation costs, and lower skin irritation with aggressive active ingredients. It increases the absorbsion of anti-oxidants like Vitamin c, ferulic acid, etc. Epidev can increase the delivery of water-loving, water soluble actives up to 50%
