AVEKA was approached by a beauty care company to create a dry water personal care product. The customer had an aqueous liquid formulation to be encapsulated, creating a free-flowing and stable powder product. The encapsulated water needed to be strong enough to withstand equipment and industry strains, while still being able to rupture and release the aqueous content with the slightest rub of the fingers. While dry water technology is well-known in the industry, there are very few toll manufacturers for this product.
AVEKA created several laboratory dry water samples for the customers evaluation. The AVEKA team determined the optimum production method and proposed minor formulation changes to improve product stability without sacrificing product performance. The final dry water product has 90 wt% encapsulated liquid. AVEKA now has an ongoing production relationship with the customer.
