Encapsulation technology refers to the process of wrapping one material with another. To stably keep functional ingredients for a long time, one capsule needs to contain as many nutrients as possible and the size of capsules must be maintained for a long time.
The Korea Institute of Ceramic Engineering and Technology (KICET) said that its research team has developed encapsulation technology through a five-year capsule material-related study. The new technology can contain about 10 times more functional ingredients in a capsule than the conventional technique. Because the new technology requires a simple manufacturing process, capsules can be produced at a low cost.
KICET signed an agreement with domestic cosmetics material company LABIO on February 22 to transfer its encapsulation technology for commercialization. The institute will provide follow-up services. "We will transfer the technology to companies that need our excellent technology to foster small-sized enterprises and support them," KICET president Jeong Yeon-gil said in a statement.
Founded in 2015, LABIO is a biotechnology-based cosmetics material company that develops natural preservatives and natural emulsifiers.
