This is quite a coincidence but Lucas Meyer just came to our company yesterday to demonstrate their emulsifiers and gelling agents. They also described how their material, Pro-Lipo Neo, can be used to encapsulate water soluble (up to 10%) or oil soluble (up to 0.2%) actives in liposomes for enhanced penetrations. They showed data from franz diffusion cell tests which claimed that this encapsulation increased the speed and depth of penetration while also reducing TEWL.
Of course there was a modest price tag of ~$300/kg. Not as much as some, but definitely more than others.
