Microencapsulation

Microencapsulation refers to all of the techniques enabling individualised particles to be obtained.

The micro-particles obtained can be divided into two groups:
– Microcapsules comprised of a solid envelope containing a liquid, solid, or paste-type substance. Each microcapsule behaves like a reservoir.
– Microspheres comprised of a continuous network of support material in which the substance to be encapsulated is dispersed. Each microcapsule behaves like a matrix.

The innovative Novacaps® process developed by Novapharm is an original combination of these two systems. It consists of transforming an active liquid (oily or aqueous) or solid (solubilised or dispersed in a suitable solvent) so as to obtain a free-flowing powder.

  • Essential oils: (orange, eucalyptus, oregano, lavender, etc.)
  • Vegetable oils: (borage, evening primrose, blackcurrant seed, argan, etc.)
  • Oils of marine origin: (fish, krill, micro-algae, etc.)
  • Sensitive molecules: (vitamins, co-factors, pigments, enzymes, etc.)
