Fragrances and other added value ingredients are often costly and prone to degradation when left open to the air. Microencapsulation is a preservation technology which holds costly ingredients in air-tight micro capsules keeping them protected from evaporation and oxidisation. Once applied the microcapsules remain intact until the product is handled and their contents are released.
Our technology is a way of holding liquid ‘cargo’ in tiny airtight microcapsules which when ‘popped’, release their contents exactly where and when they are needed. This ‘cargo’ can be any non-water soluble liquid; a fragrance, moisturiser or a biocide, for example. The capsule wall is made from natural materials and is totally biodegradable. Measuring 10 -15 microns the microcapsules are completely invisible to the naked eye.
