For cosmetics, BioPharmX has developed an encapsulated microparticle emulsion for the delivery of water-sensitive hydrophilic agents.

Water-sensitive, hydrophilic agents are tough to protect in most hydrophilic formulations. The encapsulation delivery system is able to isolate the hydrophilic agent from the boundary layer between the hydrophilic and hydrophobic phases of emulsion. The emulsion of the hydrophilic delivery vehicle makes it feel smooth to the touch. We believe this new platform technology is an innovative way of delivering combinations of ingredients to cosmeceutical products for new market innovations.

BioPharmX is currently evaluating out-licensing opportunities for this patent-protected encapsulation delivery platform.
