TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Delivery systems of bioactive molecules play an increasingly important role in improving human health, serving as important tools for improving the efficacy and safety of a wide range of products, including cosmetics, drugs, gene therapy vectors, and food. The technology on offer is a patented, advanced delivery system adept at transporting a wide range of bioactive molecules, making it highly valuable in both the cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical sectors.

This technology is a specially modified polymer, generating a three-dimensional nanogel structure when simply dissolved in water. The resultant material encompasses both hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties, ensuring its versatility and biocompatibility. In comparison to traditional liposome methods, this technology's self-assembling property expedites product development and obviates the requirement for expensive infrastructure or specialized tools. When combined with desired ingredients in water, the technology offers enhanced encapsulation for active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) molecules, addressing common issues of diminished bioavailability and instability in various healthcare products. In the cosmeceutical realm, it proves particularly effective for delivering active ingredients, facilitating skin penetration while simultaneously enhancing skin hydration due to its unique base components. Beyond its cosmetic applications, the technology holds immense potential in the pharmaceutical sector. Its unique structural attributes make it a promising candidate for delivering mRNA and gene therapies.

The technology owner is interested in co-development projects, out-licensing and IP acquisition opportunities with Singapore-based personal care, healthcare, and pharmaceutical companies.
