The company has been involved in the publication of scientific publications related to its technology.
Our microcapsules are 100% plant based.
Plant pollens or spores have their internal genetic material removed by a simple chemical or enzyme process to produce a non-allergenic porous, inert, elastic shell, which is then refilled. The micro-capsule shells have anti-oxidant properties enabling them to help preserve the active ingredients inside. They also have taste-masking properties.
Sporomex micro-capsule shells are nature's answer to the plastic beads that have for many years been used in cosmetic and personal care products. Due to their devastating effect on the marine environment the manufacture and use of the plastic beads is now banned in many countries including the UK. Please visit our Cosmetics and Personal Care page for an overview of the use of Sporomex micro-capsule shells as an alternative to plastic beads.
