With the consumers increasingly demanding natural formulations, essential oils are taking center stage in many products. While offering consumer and marketing benefits, essential oils are sensitive to volatilization, and those used for active purposes can lose their efficacy. Essential oils can also degrade and discolor easily, overpower fragrances, or have too strong of an odor, thus affecting the personality and presentation of a product. Tagra’s cellulose based encapsulation minimizes these obstacles by isolating the essential oils until application while still allowing the oils to be showcased and experienced. CelluOils™ convert liquid into powder, resulting in ease of handling and makes it possible to design new innovative formulations concepts. Also available for customized fragrance and skin care complexes.
CelluOils™ are gradually added at the last stage of formulation preparation, using a simple paddle/anchor type mixer at 70-300rpm.
Do not apply shear forces otherwise there is a risk of breaking the capsules.
Incorporation should be done at temperature up to 40°C.
Formulations should not contain more than 20% of glycols and alcohols in total.
