Health products are used by most people for improving the quality of life and involves the use of vitamins, minerals and essential biomolecules delivered through dermal and oral routes. These active ingredients are formulated as skin care and nutraceutical products for the management of various physiological processes such as aging, pigmentation, digestion, and metabolism. The formulated active ingredients are seldom effective due to biological barriers of the human body such as the skin and the digestive tract.
To improve their effectiveness, protein nanocages (nCage) can be used to package and deliver active ingredients across the complex barriers, reaching the target site of action. The technology owner have developed the nCage delivery technology to formulate essential active molecules for skin and oral nutraceutical applications. The target users will be product developers and/or formulators of essential active ingredients from the skin care, nutraceutical, and consumer product industries as well as raw ingredient manufacturers. The technology owner is looking for joint venture partners and licensing opportunities from the skin care and oral nutraceutical companies.
The technology comprises naturally-derived, protein-based nCage carriers designed withh dual purposes. These nCages are customizable to encapsulate various types of active molecules and can serve as stabilisers in the formulations of lotions, creams and gels.
Advantages of nCage delivery system :
Value propositions :
Technology compliance :
The primary area of application for this technology is skin care, health and wellness. Use cases include:
Other target markets include pharmaceutical industry for the encapsulation and delivery of drugs and diagnostic agents for Inflammatory disorders of the skin melanoma and oral treatment for ulcers
The technology will benefit B2B2C consumers looking for a delivery system to encapsulate their active molecules such as players in the skin care, oral nutraceutical, and food stabilizers industries.
