Research & Development respecting nature

The entire Foliage line is produced by Phitogen Beauty Labs S.r.l., a leader in the filler market, which has patented innovative technology and environmentally sustainable production processes. Phitogen has been supplying important national and international brands for years, offering its business customers complete support for the implementation of high-end and 100% Made in Italy hyaluronic acid-based filler lines.

The Hyaluronic Acid extraction process takes place within a certified production site of over 5,000 square meters, equipped with a latest generation clean room, which allows to obtain a raw material free of nucleic acids and residual proteins, guaranteeing quality standards of excellence and maximum safety.

Raw materials

Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid, which at this stage is still in powder state, is placed in special containers where it is weighed, sealed and taken to the sterile liquid filling department where the more viscous hyaluronic acid solution is prepared.

2.

Cross-Linking

In this first stage, ultra-pure Hyaluronic Acid with no nucleic acids and no residual proteins is mixed with the cross-linking agent BDDE at low temperature over a long period of time. This unique manufacturing process, known as cross-linking, preserves the specific visco-elastic properties of Hyaluronic Acid, and above all allows smaller quantities of the chemical cross-linking agent BDDE to be used, resulting in a superior quality product with a very high degree of biocompatibility.

3.

Purification

The mixture is purified using a dialysis process via WFI (water for injection). This process eliminates any residual BDDE molecules, ensuring a product with a high level of purity and low toxicity.

4

4.

Mixing

The product is mixed with a buffered solution to provide a neutral pH value.

5

5.

Filling

The resulting mixture is placed in the tank of a filling machine with lack of oxygen, where it will remain for several hours while waiting for the lab tests to prove that it meets the quality and purity requirements. Once checked, the product is ready to be filled using an automatic filling machine.

6.

Sterilisation

The pre-filled syringes are then autoclaved, using moist heat for 15 minutes at 121 degrees Celsius. Once the sterilisation process is complete, the syringes are left on stand-by while waiting for the results of the quality control tests.

7.

Quality control and product release

At this stage, final tests are carried out to certify that the quality and safety requirements for the release of the finished product have been met: – Extrudability and pH control – External tests at certified laboratories – Sterility and LAL test – and Visual inspection.

8.

Packaging

At this stage, the syringe is placed in a thermoformed blister pack sealed with medical paper and inserted into the packaging. Finally, the product is packed and transferred to the warehouse where it will be stored at storage temperatures while awaiting dispatch to the customer.

Nature is beauty

The entire Foliage Filler line is inspired by the cyclical changes that have always characterized both nature and man: a “natural” revolution that draws its most disruptive strength from the passage of time.

Supporting a concept of care and aesthetic harmony inspired by biological becoming and aimed at a ‘Cyclic Maintenance of Beauty’: these are Foliage’s values, this is the behind its products.

Foliage hyaluronic acid fillers aim to preserve and improve the physiological well-being of the skin, without distorting the original features and without pursuing stilted results.

Foliage makes it possible to cope naturally with ‘aesthetic time’, through the use of high-end organic-based revitalising products that achieve progressive, natural, and longer-lasting results.
