Phytosome is trademark filed and registered by Indena S.p.A. in major countries worldwide to distinguish a proprietary technology for the manufacture of blends of natural active ingredients and phospholipids (mostly lecithin).
It has been shown that the blends obtained with the Phytosome technology allow, inter alia, to increase absorption of herbal extracts or isolated active principles both topically as well as orally.
So far, Indena has applied the Phytosome technology to a number of popular herbal extracts and active molecules including Ginkgo biloba extract, bilobalide isolated from Ginkgo biloba, silybin isolated from milk thistle (Silybum marianum), curcumin isolated from turmeric, and green tea extract (Camellia sinensis).
