Development of biodegradable fragrance encapsulation system for fabric softener applications
BIOCAPS will deliver a revolutionary bio-based and biodegradable fragrance encapsulates to enhance their stability and performance in fabric softeners. They will replace currently used plastic microbeads for fragrance delivery. The encapsulates will adhere to the fabric, withstand tumbling/drying cycles, and release the fragrance upon natural rubbing of the fabric. This breakthrough development will upgrade fabric softener performance while meeting environmental and economic demands.
