Penetrating Topical CBD Phase-change Technology

Phase Change Technology

Herb Tech has created an emulsion technology that can change its orientation from oil to water. In science, this is known as a “phase change”.  Emulsions look like creams, but they are much more complex.  They have stabilized oil and water molecules attached to certain binders. When the emulsion is in an oil environment (like the stratum corneum) all of the oil components organize on the outside of the emulsion allowing it to penetrate the stratum corneum carrying along with the hydrophilic components on the inside of the emulsion.  When the emulsion gets to the epidermis, a hydrophilic environment, the emulsion “breaks”.  This means that many of the lipophilic components leave the emulsion while the hydrophilic components now move to the outside of the emulsion. The lipophilic components (CBD and other botanicals) that remain are now on the inside of the emulsion which can now pass to the epidermis.   Without phase change technology, penetration of CBD and other botanicals won’t occur.
