Microencapsulation is a method in which small particles or substances are wrapped by natural or synthetic coverage to prevent them from being lost and to protect them from external agents.
The microcapsule or cover protects the active substance or active ingredient from the action of the different physical and chemical agents, such as the reaction with other compounds, the affectation by temperature, oxygen, humidity, light or pH. This allows us to preserve its original characteristics and improve the durability of its effects.
In addition to protecting the encapsulated substance, this method allows us a controlled, prolonged and selective release, achieving products with better properties.
This technique covers multiple sectors such as cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food and textile.
