- This patent joins the ranks of previously issued patents in Australia, India, Japan, and the EU, even as similar patent applications for skin-based delivery of patented DehydraTECH formulations remain pending in many countries
- In Lexaria’s 2018 study, DehydraTECH-processed CBD demonstrated almost a 1,900% increase in CBD permeability through human skin compared to a control formulation that was devoid of any commercial penetration enhancers
- This patent inches Lexaria closer to taking advantage of the cosmeceuticals market, projected to hit $95.95 billion by 2030, and the global skincare market that is estimated to post a CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period (2021-2030)
Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, has announced its 28th granted patent worldwide and the first granted patent from its sixth patent family, titled “Transdermal And/Or Dermal Delivery Of Lipophilic Active Agents.” The Canadian patent #3,093,414 is for improved compositions and methods for transdermal and dermal delivery of cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (“CBD”) and tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”), all established on the company’s patented DehydraTECH technology (https://ibn.fm/YTQrC).
This patent comes three months after Lexaria was granted its 27th worldwide patent in Mexico and just eight months since it was awarded its 25th patent in the United States for “Compositions and Methods For Enhanced Delivery of Antiviral Agents.” It joins the ranks of previously issued patents in Australia, India, Japan, and the EU, even as similar patent applications for skin-based delivery of DehydraTECH formulations remain pending in many other countries.
“This will be our 25th patent granted worldwide and another validation of the versatility of our DehydraTECH drug delivery technology,” noted Chris Bunka, Lexaria’s CEO, during the announcement of the company’s first-ever patent for the use of DehydraTECH technology in the enhanced delivery of antiviral drugs (https://ibn.fm/x723X).
In Lexaria’s 2018 study, DehydraTECH-CBD demonstrated almost a 1,900% increase in CBD permeability through human skin compared to a control formulation that was devoid of any commercial penetration enhancements. When pitted against the best-performing commercial penetration enhancer, DehydraTECH-CBD still proceeded to be 225% more effective at penetration through the skin, making it the fastest for absorption into the epidermis, dermis, and through the skin.
The cosmeceuticals market is projected to hit $95.75 billion by 2030, up from $45.56 billion in 2021. In addition, the global skincare market is estimated to post a CAGR of 4.6% by 2030, up from $130.5 billion in 2021 (https://ibn.fm/dOo8A). Lexaria recognizes the opportunity therein. This patent inches the company closer to taking advantage of this booming market, allowing it to curve out a niche for itself and establish a market presence, mainly bolstered by its patented DehydraTECH technology.
