PID# 8816

A self-encapsulation fragrance technology

  • Do-it-yourself, instant encapsulation of fragrance and essential oil
  • Extends fragrance performance
  • Compatible with most clear aqueous and hydroalcoholic bases
  • Can be used in wash off, leave on, spray, etc.



Introduction

A new fragrance technology that enables formulators to gain more performance from the most expensive ingredients in a formula and extend the fragrance sensation over longer time. SalScent™ is a completely new approach to fragrance encapsulation. It allows the manufacturers the freedom to encapsulate the fragrance of choice at the required time and location.

With SalScent™, you can prepare variety of finished products with ease, reduce fragrance level, extend the product’s benefit, and save money. Please review our suggestions for wash off, leave on, spray, and fine perfume. SalScent™ is suitable for personal care, home, and industrial applications.

Unique Features

  1. Extends The Release Of Fragrance Performance - Offering a cost-effective and flexible solution.
  2. Versatile Use Including Compatibility With Clear Products - This pre-case technology is compatible with most formulations, including clear aqueous or hydroalcoholic bases.
  3. Flexibility - Allows for fragrance encapsulation at any facility. The final encapsulation only requires a conventional mixing set-up.

Encapsulation Technology

Step 1: Preparation - SST is a composite of synthetic polymers that entrap the fragrance. Preparation of the carrier is done by Salvona.

Step 2: Entrapment - Fragrance is entrapped into the pores/cavities of the core while mixing.

Step 3: In Situ Encapsulation - When applied, the solvent (water) evaporates, allowing for the polymers to re-organize and form a fine layer that controls the release for longer.

Step 4: Release - When exposed to moisture at the proximate area, the shell gradually dissolves to burst release the encapsulated fragrance.

How It Works

SST technology provides you with the ability to encapsulate your fragrance of choice in your own facility. It also provides you with the opportunity to fully customize the balance between cost and performance. You can vary the loading of the fragranceto reach optimal performance. For maximum longevity, a ratio of 1:2 (neat fragrance:SST) is recommended. Add the fragrance to the SST liquid while gently mixing at room temperature until it’s homogeneous and a clear solution has formed.

Fragrance Retention

SST stabilized fragrance volatility for a longer-lasting effect.
