EpiFytosomes: Next Generation Delivery System for Botanical Extracts


Bio-Botanica has developed a natural delivery system utilizing liposomes which are tiny capsules made of a phospholipid bilayer encasing water soluble components, such as botanical extracts. This delivery system addresses epigenetics—the next generation delivery system for personal care and dietary supplements.

The advantages of the liposomal delivery system are numerous, including: 

  • Protecting the active ingredient from oxidation;
  • Increasing bio-absorption and efficacy of the active ingredient or nutrient; and
  • Providing active nutrients from phospholipids.

Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene expression (active versus inactive genes) that do not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence, a change in phenotype without a change in genotype that in turn affects how cells read the genes.

Epigenetic change is a regular and natural occurrence but can also be influenced by several factors including age, the environment/lifestyle and disease state. Epigenetic modifications can manifest as commonly as the way cells terminally differentiate to end up as skin cells, liver cells, brain cells, etc. Or, epigenetic change can have more damaging effects that can result in diseases like cancer.
