Dow Corning and Lipo Chemicals have collaborated to produce a range of microencapsulation-based concept formulations.

The Engage Your Senses kit mixes microencapsulation with the benefits of silicone. This combination allows formulators to create visual appeal, protect unstable cosmetic actives, sustain or customise release and combine previously incompatible ingredients in one formulation.

There are six prototype formulas in the kit: soft vanilla leave-in conditioner, peach smoothie body scrub, cherry silk body smoother, mint chocolate foot cream, cool cucumber aftershave balm and sparkling berry styling gel.
