With multiple encapsulation technology capabilities, Ashland develops custom encapsulates tailored to meet the needs of your formulation.

Captivates™ HC encapsulates

Captivates™ HC encapsulates are a series of small particles, in sizes ranging from 250 µm to 3,000 µm, that contain an active ingredient, or core material, surrounded by a shell produced using a complex coacervation process.  Capsule wall thickness, color, capsule size and core material can be customized.

key benefits:

  • biodegradable wait and nature-derived
  • based on gelatin and Gum Arabic
  • suitable for a wide range of oil soluble materials
  • releases internal phase when shear is applied
  • visible and non-visible

Captivates™ GL encapsulates

Captivates™ GL encapsulates are a series of small particles, in sizes ranging from 5 µm to 2,000 µm, that contain material dispersed in a continuous matrix. These microbeads are made using JettCutter™ technology, which forms a hydrogel matrix that can entrap insoluble powders, oils and water-soluble actives.

key benefits:

  • vegan suitable
  • biodegradable and up to 100% natural origin content¹
  • utilizes a natural hydrogel matrix
  • suitable for solids, oils and insoluble material
  • triggered delivery by pH, dilution and shear
  • visible
