Efficacy of water based actives in a W/O emulsion?
I had a passing curiosity and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about it. How does the emulsion type affect the skin’s ability to absorb or receive actives from the internal phase? For instance, if I had a skin cream with water soluble actives such as panthenol, sodium hyaluronate/hyaluronic acid, etc., would putting these in a W/O emulsion significantly hinder their delivery to the skin? Again, this was just a passing curiosity, but if anyone has any insight I’d love to hear it.
