For each formula, Euracli selects the best active ingredients or essential oils.
These are emulsified in a liquid medium. A polymer wall forms,
insulating the active ingredients from the environment and from oxidation
without affecting their performance.
These microcapsules are for cosmetic use in compliance
with the European REACH regulation.
The formulated microcapsules, about 2 µm in diameter, are incorporated into the binder
that is best adapted to the target textile.
Application tests are performed in Euracli’s R&D laboratory
to determine the product concentration that will guarantee optimum performance
without altering the fabric’s colour or texture.
When there is agreement on the result, Euracli starts the formula production phase.
Depositing the microcapsules onto the fabric is outsourced to a service provider,
using the most suitable technique (padding, immersion, spraying or recharging)
as a function of how finished the product is, of the type of fabric,
and of the expected resistance to washing.
When the clothing is worn, friction causes the microcapsules to rupture,
releasing the active ingredients.
