Changing the world with
Founded in 1916, Hosokawa Micron is a pioneer of powder and particle processing technology in Japan and we have continued researching and developing new technologies in an effort to respond to the needs of various fields for over a century. High osmotic and sustained nanoparticles, we call them PLGA nanocapsules, are the culmination of the powder technology of Hosokawa Micron. Our PLGA nanocapsules were developed based on medical technology research as part of a national project, opening new doors for cosmetics.
Endless possibilities of PLGA nanocapsules
with high functionality
Drug Delivery System (DDS) is a medical technology to keep delivering
the appropriate amount of drug to the affected part necessary.
Our original PLGA Nanocapsules were developed based on the concept of DDS technology
in 2002, and have come into practical use as a cosmetic material since 2004.
By the great function of biodegradable and biocompatible PLGA nanocapsules,
the encapsulated useful ingredients permeate deep into every type of skin quickly
in a stable condition and keep acting for a long time.
Furthermore, PLGA nanocapsules themselves are an extremely safe material
for the human body due to their hydrolytic characteristic.
We propose to the world three kinds of Japan-made brands with features of
skin-permeability and long-sustainability.
The PLGA nanocapsules with biodegradable and biocompatible characteristics can easily permeate deep into the skin even through clogged pores, and the nanocapsules themselves begin to hydrolyze with water in the body, letting the useful ingredients release around the stratum corneum for a long period.
Permeability of PLGA nanocapsules
Once PLGA nanocapsules reach the stratum corneum quickly,
they start to be dissolved slowly with the body water, and the encapsulated
ingredients continue to be released out of the capsules for a long period.
By taking this advantage of the characteristic of the long duration of action,
we succeeded in maximizing the benefits of the useful ingredients.
Sustainability of PLGA nanocapsules
Evaluation by Prof. Miwa of Prefectural University of Hiroshima
- Nanocapsule technology
- PLGA nanocapsules contain
fat-soluble vitamin C derivatives,
which are released in a sustained
manner for over 12 hours.
- Conventional technology
- O/W emulsion contains fat-soluble
vitamin C derivatives,
which are dissolved in 7 hours.
