ACC is a brand new proprietary and patented technology based on the well-known cholesteric
liquid crystal colour shift material that is differentiated from conventional colour shift materials and security images.

A liquid crystal thermometer comprises of rubber layers, into which cholesteric
crystals are organised in sheets that are seated on a frame.
liquid crystal (CLC) is a soft matter with a self-organized helical structure and can be regarded as a one-dimensional photonic crystal .
by introducing the helical structure through twist deformation of double helix structure in analogy with the structure of helimagnet and cholesteric
liquid crystal system.
Cholesterol hydrophobically modified pullulan (CHP) is an amphipathic substance that self-assembles in aqueous solution into nanostructures with a shell of cholesteric
hydrophobe and sugar-chain hydrophilicity  (Figure 1).

The intriguing ability of CNCs to self-organize into a chiral nematic (cholesteric
) liquid crystal phase with a helical arrangement had attracted significant interest, resulting in much research effort [58, 59].
While CoValence says they could have left the Liquid Crystal alone, they have amplified the anti-aging benefits by adding the novel antioxidant Spin Trap Complex (PBN), "a highly intelligent antioxidant with free-radical trapping capacity." Rose Crystal Eye Serum has the same benefits of Opal Crystal Eye Serum, as it utilizes the cholesteric
liquid crystal backbone to improve the texture and appearance of the delicate eye area the same way that the combination of Liquid Crystal and Spin Trap has shown to improve complexions for 20-plus years.
At 142[degrees]C, the oily streak texture of the cholesteric
phase appeared as shown in Fig.
