Regulatory Compliance

PhytoSpherix® is not classified as a nanomaterial by cosmetic regulatory and certification bodies (Health Canada, EU, COSMOS, ACO etc.) because:

  • PhytoSpherix® is water soluble (individual molecules remain in solution indefinitely)
  • PhytoSpherix® is not biopersistant – the material is quickly and easily degraded to simple sugars in the  environment and in the body
  • PhytoSpherix® is not intentionally manufactured – it is simply extracted from corn in the same state as it is found in nature

PhytoSpherix® is a botanical extract, which is extracted from (non-GMO) sweet corn.  PhytoSpherix® is a form of “phytoglycogen” (i.e. glycogen obtained from a plant source).
