SKHINCAPS @ Techtextil 2019

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!
