Europe is the world leader in the cosmetic industry with a turnover of 77 billion euros, including more than 2 billion euros for Belgium. Certech is presently developing new solutions for cosmetic applications notably in the field of encapsulation through the design of biobased carriers.
Our research projects include the following topics :
- Synthesis of biobased dendrimers to be incorporated in cosmetic formulations as carriers.
- Characterisation of cosmetic formulations (size of micelles, stability,…).
- Process intensification via meso/microfluic flow reactors.
