Administración pulsada de agentes beneficiosos para productos de cuidado personal


Demanda Tecnológica
Una multinacional belga del sector de bienes de consumo está interesada en mejorar las formulaciones de sus productos de cuidado personal para mejorar la experiencia del consumidor. La empresa busca tecnologías de partículas capaces de proteger agentes beneficiosos de sus productos y administrar los agentes mediante liberación pulsada durante el uso del producto. Se buscan socios industriales o centros de investigación que suministren tecnologías de partículas. El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica o licencia.


Pulsed delivery of benefit agents for personal care products
A Belgian multinational active in consumer goods looks for particle technologies capable of protecting their benefit agents and delivering the agent in a staged (i.e. pulsed) release during product usage. Industrial partners or research centres able to provide particle technologies are sought for technical cooperation or licence agreement with the large account.
A Belgian multinational based in Brussels and active in consumer goods wishes to improve the formulations of personal care products in order to increase the customer´s experience. This company has 1 ½ century of history in the fast moving consumer goods markets and owns several brands known at global level.

Pulsed particles are known in the industry, but currently they are designed primarily for pharmaceutical applications (e.g. chronotherapy) and thus anhydrous product designs. These particles are expected to display limited stabilities in Personal Care formulations which are typically aqueous. There is an opportunity to develop particle technologies that will be stable in aqueous product formulations and provide their benefit in a pulsed delivery during consumer product usage.

The company is then looking for particle technologies capable of protecting their benefit agents and delivering the agent in a staged (i.e. pulsed) release during product usage. This pulsed delivery can occur due to changes in the surrounding environment. This technology can provide benefits that will address both short term and long term business needs across different company´s products.

The company is looking for collaboration with industrial partners or research centres able to provide solutions enabling the pulsed delivery of benefit agents for personal care products. The purpose would be setting up a long lasting cooperation allowing the large account to comply with its internal strategy and for the potential partner to interact in a systematic way with the large account so as to have immediate access to forthcoming similar requests
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
Specific requirements are listed below:

· Product Designs: the company is interested in chemistries that have the potential to produce particles that are stable in both anhydrous and aqueous product formulations. The first priority is to have particles that are stable in liquid product designs (oil/water emulsions, water/oil emulsions and alcoholic solutions) and compatible with formulations containing anionic/cationic/nonionic surfactants, salts and polar solvents.

· Benefit Agents: the company is looking for technologies that are capable of delivering benefit agents that have different chemistries. These include lipophilic and hydrophilic liquids as well as organic and inorganic solids. The preferred benefit agent loading is > 40%

· Consumer Relevant Triggers: Example stimuli that can be used to enable the pulsed delivery include: change in pH/ionic strength, UV exposure and skin biology.

· Technology Forms: the company is interested in different encapsulation approaches, including reservoir (e.g. core/shell), matrix and gels.

The company is not looking for:

· Chemistries that are incompatible with skin and hair.
· Technologies that have a particle size large enough to be visible on skin.
· Technologies that are soluble in water.
