How to make efficacious cosmetics actives easier to use?
Microencapsulation technology has been widely explored by many industries including Cosmetics and Pharmaceutical. Cosmetics and Personal Care products often contain biologically active substances that are unstable and sensitive to temperature, pH, light and oxidation. These substances may undergo undesired reactions that lead to the reduction or loss of their effectiveness or even lead to the degradation of the cosmetic product.  Microencapsulation of efficacious cosmetics actives can overcome these undesirable results.
Essential Oils, Vitamins, Acids and Natural Extracts are highly oxidative substances that quickly degrade and constantly react with the medium and other cosmetic compounds (light, oxygen, packaging, preservatives, fragrances, surfactants, etc.). By encapsulating it, we grant the stability of the active ingredients and protect them from possible reactions with the formulation or the environment.
Using a production process that is based on Green-Chemistry allows some encapsulated ingredients to be water-based, free of organic solvents and totally sustainable, reducing waste that may otherwise be harmful to the users and/or the environment.
The encapsulation grants a better permeation of the actives in the skin. Unlike the actives in their free form, the encapsulated actives can overcome the stratum corneum layer, reaching the epidermis and delivering the maximum benefits.
PROLONGED RELEASE THROUGH SPECIFIC TRIGGERS
Our technology allows a prolonged release of the active ingredients through 5 innovative and specific triggers.
Let’s take a look at one of our favorite cosmetic active – Retinol – and review NV Retinol and the benefits of encapsulation.
Retinol is commonly used in Cosmetics and Personal Care products for its Anti-Aging effects:
But we don’t talk about the undesirable effects of retinol:
NV Retinol provides the following benefits:
