Lipidots® is a versatile nano-delivery platform based on tiny droplets of oil for encapsulating and carrying drugs or fluorescent imaging agents to targeted cells in the body for treatment or diagnosis. Leti’s partnership with Capsum shows that the technology is easily adapted for applications in the cosmetics industry.
Capsum adapted the Lipidots® technology for its NeoGoutttesTM, nano-emulsions that are used as a component in finished products and that provide a very efficient way of vectorizing lipophilic or hydrophilic concentrates of active ingredients. The nanovector encapsulation protects active ingredients, so they are conveyed through the skin for optimal effect.
“Technology transfer to our partners for commercialization of our research results is a critical part of Leti’s mission,” said
“Capsum is focused on providing innovative ways to design and develop cosmetics by incorporating the best science within creative product design,” said SÉbastien
The successful technology transfer follows more than seven years of collaboration between Leti and Capsum that included development work on Lipidots®.
This successful technology transfer is the second recent announcement about Lipidots®. In July, Leti announced €1 million in funding from bpifrance to accelerate preclinical development of a liver-cancer detection system called LipImage 815™. LipImage 815™ is a fluorescent imaging agent based on Lipidots® that carries a fluorescent substance to targeted cells. It will be used to test for early stages of liver cancer
