Nanoencapsulation can make significant savings for formulators as it can reduce the amount of active ingredients needed, according to Ken Chomistek, a research engineer with Microfluidics.

Chomistek recently presented the company’s high shear fluid processors to the cosmetics industry at the HBA show in New York.

Microfluidics’ system uses high shear forces to push the materials through a very small orifice size to create the nano-particles, he explained.

The smaller size means it is easier for the ingredient can weave its way through the body, including the skin.

“If you have an ingredient that you want to deliver transdermally, nanoencapsulating it using our system will allow it to get through the skin and all the way to the cellular level.”

The improved efficiency of the active gives formulators two options: either using the same levels of the active and advertising the formulation as an extra strength product, or using lower levels of the active for the same effect.
