For these bio-actives to work, effective delivery systems are required and this is where micro-encapsulation plays a vital role.
What is Micro-encapsulation?
Micro-encapsulation involves protecting tiny particles of the bio-active within a coating to create a microscopic capsule. This capsule protects the bio-active from a wide range of environmental conditions and ensures it is released at an appropriate time and site within the body.
Benefits of micro-encapsulation include:
This allows the creation of:
