Why DehydraSomes should be on your skincare radar

What are Dehydrasomes?

These are Certified Organic and incorporated into the formulation process of Tanu to deliver phospholipids which attract water, locking in moisture to rehydrate and plump the skin. Organic DehydraSomes consist of certified organic phospholipids that are dispersed in biomimetic Certified Organic sunflower oil.

How do Dehydrasomes work?

When Dehydrasomes are applied to the skin, the hydrophilic portions of the phospholipids naturally migrate to hydrophilic environments where they assemble into a multivesicular system. The moisture in our skin causes these vesicles to swell and minimize the appearance of fine lines. Because the vesicles penetrate the stratum corneum and bind with the moisture present, they can inhibit trans‐epidermal water loss (TEWL) to increase moisturization.

The Dehydrasomes also enhance the delivery of the botanical active extracts (we have chosen to incorporate Acai and Goji Berry Extracts for their strong antioxidant a critical ingredient for the health and appearance of your skin). 

The mineral Silica is used as the Delivery System for the Dehydrasomes due to its fine particle size. This mineral is critical for strong and healthy skin. It helps build collagen, smooths fine lines, heals inflammation, and renews cells.

What are Phospholipids? 

Phospholipids are comprised of two types of fatty acids. That puts them in the lipid family, a broad group of naturally-occurring molecules which include fats, waxes, sterols, fat-soluble vitamins (such as vitamins A, D, E, and K). The main biological functions of lipids include energy storage, as structural components of cell membranes, and as important signaling molecules.

Phospholipids are described as having heads and tails, the 'head' of a phospholipid is hydrophilic [attracted to water], while the hydrophobic 'tails' repel water. This means that they attract water and hold on to it. Hello, moisturizer!

The heads and tails organize themselves into bio-layers that gives them a structure similar to that of skin. Because of this, it is said that products that contain them have an affinity with the skin and high tolerance. Phospholipids retain their structure when applied and because of this is sometimes called a “second skin”. 

Extracts incorporated into our Dehydrasomes

LECITHIN [from sunflowers] helps to: 

  • Penetration Enhancer: It alters the skin structure allowing other substances to penetrate deeper.
  • Antioxidant: It helps to repair free radical damage, soothing inflamed, irritated skin.
  • Hydrophilic ingredient: It attracts water to the skin, working to prevent moisture loss from deep within the skin tissues.
  • Moisturizing: It is very moisturizing, which is due to its high levels of oleic and linoleic acid.
  • Ferulic acid - A potent antioxidant Research has shown that it provides antioxidant benefits to skin while enhancing the stability of topical applications of antioxidant vitamins C and E
  • Epicatechin - also a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties 
  • In vitro research has shown açai has higher antioxidant properties than other berries.


  • Carotenoids - These phytonutrients contain high quantities of antioxidants, which help protect the skin’s barrier and fight wrinkle-causing free radicals. Goji Berries are high in zeaxanthin and lutein, these compounds aid in protecting from harmful blue light (which is emitted from mobile phones & digital devices). Lycopene is known for its skin brightening properties.

I have incorporated Certified Organic Dehydrasomes [Acia & Goji Berries] into Tanu - Cell Affinity Coactive Serum, to take advantage of the ability to enhance cellular renewal while simultaneously optimizing skin hydration levels and delivering potent antioxidants deeper into the layers of skin where they are required to be of most benefit.

Until next time
