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 @ 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!
