Developed to provide an alternative to synthetic microcapsules, the Cosmoscaps are microcapsules that encapsulate perfumes into a vegetable matrix made of natural waxes. This 100% natural innovation is also Cosmos-certified.
"This technology is the result of a reflection that we had started to be able to provide our customers in the natural segment - accounting for 30% of our portfolio - with an encapsulation technology. The innovation does not only provide a solution without microplastics but also a Cosmos certified solution to natural cosmetic brands,” explains Laurie Junillon, Marketing & Communication Director at Sozio.
Controlled release and cosmetic benefits
According to Sozio, the vegetable base gives Cosmocaps a double action: they ensure a controlled release of the fragrance on the skin throughout the day and bring emollient properties to the formulas.
As far as the performance olfactive is concerned, the fragrance benefits from a progressive and continuous diffusion on the skin, before and after rinsing.
In addition, Sozio’s Cosmocaps provide a cosmetic benefit thanks to the emollient properties of their vegetable matrix, which nourishes and restructures the skin.
According to Sozio, the Cosmocaps are adapted to all cosmetic bases, in particular aqueous emulsions, whether for rinse or leave-on products. However, they are not compatible with alcoholic bases.
The Cosmocaps do not cause any change in the product’s texture, a slight clouding of the formula can however be observed.
