Release systems like encapsulation technology are the key to exciting sensory experiences such as the long-lasting, controlled release of flavors or fragrances. In particular, Symrise researches and works on two encapsulation platforms:

Spray drying – InCap® is a cost-effective release system for deodorants and antiperspirants as well as for wash detergents in powder form. (Body) moisture results in the release of the encapsulated perfume oil or other substance. A recent development in this area is a patented technology that allows an especially high amount
(70 %) of the perfume oil to be encapsulated, whereas the standard for such processes is 50 %.

Surface polymerization – SymCap® was developed for use in laundry detergents and fabric softeners in order to produce long-lasting fragrances that remain even on dry fabric. The scents are released by friction or fraction.
