Salvona Technologies LLC introduced time-release technology with big implications for personal care products, said the company. MultiSal Fragrance is an encapsulation technology designed to enhance the effectiveness of active ingredients in aromatherapy and malodor control applications. This double-layered encapsulation system features fragrance filled spheres locked inside larger protective microspheres. The outer shell breaks when it makes contact with moisture, releasing the sub-micron spheres of fragrance.
“Moisture triggered bursts set products with this technology apart from others on the market,” said Danielle Prima, senior chemist, Salvona Technologies.
MultiSal Fragrance is a unique system, the ultimate technology for transferring flammable perfume into stable fine powder. The encapsulation reduces volatility, thus extending product shelf life. Release of the fragrance is activated by moisture and governed by diffusion.
“The more water there is, the more intense the fragrance response will be,” said Prima. “For example, a deodorant formulated with MultiSal would be triggered to release a burst of fresh scent when the wearer perspires.”
MultiSal is ideal for use in applications such as deodorant, dry shampoo, and makeup, as well as paper and household products like toilet bowl cleansing tablets.
