Involves, protects, stimulates and activates. An innovative technology developed by Nanovetores to transform people's lives.
People well-being and life quality are related to different life aspects. The most useful technologies and innovations have a purpose, the purpose of helping people to feel better, live better and enjoy their lives. Nanovetores technology was created considering this as the very first guideline and that’s what our Group seek in each branch.
Our technology allows a prolonged release of the active ingredients through 5 innovative and specific triggers.
The pH variation leads to the disruption of the capsules, releasing the active ingredients. For example, sweating promotes a skin pH variation, this change will release the actives.
The addition of water sets-off the release of the actives from the capsules. Example: Our Instant Base has a self-emulsifying action. When water is added, it forms a bright and smooth homogeneous cream.
The Enzymes promote the breakage of the capsules, releasing the active in the deeper layers of the skin through time. This trigger enables controlled and sustained release of the active ingredients, granting superior benefits and no irritability.
A heat source promotes the variation of the capsule’s temperature, releasing the active ingredient. Example: Hair dryers or Straightening Irons.
The friction on the capsules promotes their breakage and the active’s release. We have developed encapsulated fragrances that after friction, releases a stronger scent. The biocompatible composition of these capsules makes them safe for application in personal care.
Our production process is based on Green-Chemistry, being water-based and free of organic solvents, totally sustainable. We do not generate waste that may be harmful to the users nor the environment.
PERFORMANCE & SAFETY
Essential Oils, Vitamins, Acids, and Natural Extracts are highly oxidative substances that quickly degrade and constantly react with the medium and other cosmetic compounds (light, oxygen, packaging, preservatives, fragrances, surfactants, etc.). By encapsulating it, we grant the stability of the active ingredients and protect them from possible reactions with the formulation or the environment.
The encapsulation grants a better permeation of the actives in the skin. Unlike the actives in their free form, the encapsulated actives can overcome the stratum corneum layer, reaching the epidermis and delivering the maximum benefits.
We work with labile particles, biocompatible and biodegradable, bigger than 200nm (nanometer), which does not generate risks to users or the environment.
SURFACE CHARGE CONTROL
The control over the capsules surface charge promotes a better fixation of the capsules when in contact with the surface. Example: In active ingredients for hair products, the capsules have a positive surface charge, that will be attracted by the hair’s natural negative charge.
We perform the control over the size of the particles, granting the uniformity of the active ingredients’ capsule size and ensuring that all of them have the proper permeation for each specific benefit.
The main function of the capsules is to protect the active ingredients and increase its permeation. But Nanovetores’ capsules are multifunctional, they work synergically with the encapsulated ingredients to enhance the benefits of its usage. There is two kinds of capsules:
Lipid particle, Multifunctionality: Moisturizing and Enhanced Permeation.
Biopolymer particle, Multifunctionality: Cutaneous Firmness and Hair Adhesion.
We develop different types of particles for different applications.
