The cosmetics and personal care products sector is a multi-billion dollar international market and has shown great expansion. To be successful in such a competitive and demanding sector, the products must differentiate, which can be achieved by means of using emergent technologies, such as microencapsulation.

Cosmetic and personal care products often contain biologically active substances that are unstable and sensitive to temperature, pH, light and oxidation. These substances may undergo undesired reactions that lead to the reduction or loss of their effectiveness or even lead to the degradation of the cosmetic product.

Thus, microencapsulation technologies have been proposed to increase stability, to protect against degradation, and also to direct and control the release of active ingredients used in cosmetic products.
