In order for skin to be healthy we need a well maintained stratum corneum. A healthy stratum corneum offers protection against environmental stress and water loss. BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream imitates the skin’s own lipid structure and enhance the skin's natural barrier function.
BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream is formulated with a new generation, European, sugar based, liquid crystals emulsifying system based on sorbitan stearate with sucrose cocoate. It is formulated specifically for DIY Skin care customers. BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream can be used as is. However, it can easily accept both water, oil, and water soluble and oil soluble powders and liquids. BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream is a great carrier for active skin care ingredients. The multi lamellar structure is ideal for even and effective delivery of skin actives into the skin.
BulkActives’ multi lamellar cream is exclusively and professionally formulated, manufactured and packaged for us by the same biochemist who manufactures our seakelp bioferment, pumpkin bioferment, and lemon bioferment.
Based on customer feedback we have reformulated our multi lamellar cream, making it "greener' and even more elegant! In this NEW formulation we have also replaced the xantham gum with Sclerotium Gum
, the preservative system combines the extremely safe, yet effective, Sodium Levulinate and Sodium Anisate, with Potassium sorbate and citric acid. This means our cream now does NOT contain parabens or phenoxyethanol.
Multi Lamellar Base Cream with SeaKelp Bioferment and Sclerotium Gum (No Oil and No Polymer):
- Multi-lamellar cream offers outstanding moisturization
- skin barrier repair and maintenance
- optimized delivery of actives
Benefits of Liquid crystal systems:
To thicken these creams after adding actives dissolved in waters add a few drops of Gelmaker Ultra (polymer emulsifier)
- Improved dissolution of poorly water soluble actives .
- Liquid crystals can protect and facilitate the transport of fragile molecules e.g. proteins
- Controlled active release:
- Multilayers reduce the interfacial transport of actives dissolved in oil phase
- Active delivery can be tailored depending on the active
- Oleosome structure may enhance delivery of oil soluble ingredients
- Hydrosome structure may enhance delivery of water soluble actives
- Prolonged hydration potential:
- Up to 50% water bound up in swollen water layers.
- This water is less prone to evaporation.
- In-vivo tests moisturization lasts 3 times longer
- Effective Transepidermal Water Loss (TWEL)
- Structure similar to skin

Multi lamellar creams in DIY Skin Care
Multi-Lamellar cream is an oil-in-water (O/W) emulsion showing multi-lamellar structure. Lamellar structure, also observed in stratum corneum, is defined as a thin plate or membrane of skin lipids. Multi-Lamellar Emulsion shows multiple layers of this lamellar structure, and as a moisturizer, Multi-Lamellar cream offers long-lasting skin moisturizing effects through reinforcing the skin's natural barrier function.
Skin lipids and Multi-Lamellar cream show the similar cross-like structure, termed as Maltese cross structure. Stratum corneum, as the outermost layer of skin, is responsible for the various barrier function of skin and protects our body from external harmful things.
Stratum corneum lipids are elaborately organized into lamellar structure, which plays the most important role for skin's barrier functions. Unlike the conventional moisturizers made with humectants or emollients, Multi-Lamellar cream can restore and improve the barrier function of skin, with its distinctive structural similarity to the native human skin's lamellar structure. Restoring the skin barrier function can improve skin hydration and protect skin from external irritants.
The efficacy of Multi-Lamellar cream on skin barrier was proven by several clinical studies performed in independent University Hospitals and reported in peer-reviewed academic journals, including Journal of Investigative Dermatology, one of the most renowned journals in the field of dermatology. Along with its therapeutic benefits, Multi-Lamellar cream also shows non-sticky textures, allowing quick absorption after application.
As an O/W emulsion, Multi-Lamellar cream can be also used as a vehicle (carrier) for skin care ingredients and cosmeceuticals. The multiple layer of Multi-Lamellar cream offers stabilization of active ingredients and efficient penetration of the skin actives into skin.
