What Your Mist Is Missing
You’ve most likely spritzed your skin with a facial mist, which seems like a refreshing and effective way to deliver ingredients. News flash: The large, slow-moving particles often pool on skin’s surface, simply making it wet. In fact, over 90% of topicals (such as creams or serums) just sit on top of your skin and don’t allow the actives to actually absorb. There are two reasons for this:
- Our skin is intended to be a barrier, designed to keep things out. The surface of the skin is protected by the stratum corneum, a thick, tightly packed set of cell layers that can only be penetrated by very small molecules. Larger molecules get stuck outside because they cannot be physically pushed in.
Why Droplette Is Different
The Droplette system is fundamentally different than any spray you’ve used. Originally discovered as a painless, injection-free delivery solution for a rare genetic disease, it has three parts that work together to help you maximize your skincare routine:
Device: Delivers ingredients deep into your skin via enhanced mist with droplets at least 1000X smaller than average skincare sprays.
Capsules: Contain daily doses of skincare actives, and feature built-in chips that sync with the app.
App: Keeps track of the formulations you’ve used and your daily progress, and allows you to chat directly with an expert about your personalized skincare routine.
How Does It Work?
The secret to Droplette’s magical mist is two unexpected mechanical parts that bring new physical forces to the table, in order to get the actives deeper into your skin.
Also known as a piezo, this component converts fluids into aerosol, or mist, using electricity at a certain frequency that creates vibration. The piezo contains a steel mesh with very small holes (about 4 microns in diameter), and when it vibrates, fluids pass through the mesh and emerge as a mist. (Think of it as shaking a sieve to sift flour.)
The mist that comes out of the piezo alone is still not small enough for optimal penetration, so we added a unique airflow pump system that does three things no other skincare delivery technologies can do:
- Reduces the size of the droplets by sucking in the mist and expelling it at high velocity, which makes them 30-50 times smaller upon impact with skin due to a splash effect. These accelerated droplets can snake their way through the skin more easily.
An Ultra-Hydrating Experience
The good news doesn’t stop at deeper-penetrating actives. Droplette also delivers a lot more water into your skin than other skincare formulas, because ours are completely water-based with minimal preservative systems. In fact, our device delivers about 50% more water than topical application—and it stays in your skin longer, too. That means active ingredients that could normally be drying or irritating can be used without any negative effects on the skin.
Need proof? We conducted a test to demonstrate Droplette’s ultra-effective hydration in action. Here’s how it went:
Method: We administered 50 µl of distilled water to the hand region continuously for 30 seconds with Droplette vs. 100 µl of distilled water via topical administration. Both regions were blotted dry 5 seconds after administration, and hydration was assessed by visual inspection and the Corneometer CM825 device.
Results: After 24 hours, hydration was increased 58.7% on average when water was administered by Droplette, versus only 22.8% in the control (topically administered) group. No discoloration or discomfort was reported in either group, and subjects described Droplette spray as feeling like a slightly cool mist.
It’s hard to argue with numbers like that. The way we see it, there’s no point in spending time and money on skincare that’s not going deep enough to do its job. With the game-changing Droplette system in your skincare routine, you’ll be making the most out of every single application. Need we spray more?
A much-needed advancement in cosmetics, the Droplette system allows for painless delivery of several classes of molecules deep into skin over a large surface area via mist.SHOP NOW
