Delcore is hyaluronic acid chemically modified by oleic acid. On account of its specific chemical structure, Delcore is able to create a polymeric micelle based delivery system for other active ingredients. Delcore has been shown to act as a delivery system for ingredients of a hydrophobic nature, the penetration of which through the stratum corneum may sometimes be problematic. This results in greater effect for the active ingredient, or maintenance of the current effect, at a lower concentration. The easier technological incorporation of the hydrophobic ingredient into water-based formulations is a bonus.
