The Workshop SKHINCAPS Goes to Market was held on the 3rd of September at the Royal Belgian Academy of Sciences. The aim of this workshop was to present specific recommendations regarding the needs of policy that can be useful for institutions and stakeholders, and technology and market recommendations that can be seen as applicable know-how to other stakeholders in this field of activity. The workshop also aimed to highlight the benefits, features and functionalities of the products developed by SKHINCAPS.

Skhincaps – Perceptions and Recommendations
Innovative nanocapsules for skin care
Today, consumers are increasingly aware of healthy lifestyle habits and the environmental footprint of their consumer products. As such, new technologies have been developed to fulfil their needs and expectations. Among them, nanotechnology appeared in numerous industries, creating added value to daily products.
In this context, the project SKHINCAPS – Skin Healthcare by Innovative NanoCAPsuleS – has emerged, focused on an innovative, costeffective, safe and sustainable in situ self-assembly nanoencapsulation technology, to deliver natural products for skin healthcare applications, with increased efficiency and cost benefits.
Skhincaps project was featured on the TV show PPS - Produtos Portugueses de Saúde (Portuguese Health Products).
Canal S+ wanted to know more about the European research project and interviewed Carla Silva from CeNTI (project coordinator).

Skhincaps is tailoring the world of functionalised textiles!
The project is developing different types of nanocapsules that improve the experience you can have with textiles and cosmetics. Based on an innovative nanoencapsulation technology that allows the delivery of natural products for skhin healthcare applications, the project will produce first layer garments for thermal management and skin comfort, creams loaded with vitamins and antioxidants for anti-ageing skincare, and lotions and textiles to prevent and mitigate bacterial infections on skin. Find us on Techtextil (stand 3.1 B27) and get to know Skhincaps!
