Blue California (Rancho Santa Margarita, CA) provides a comprehensive microencapsulation technology platform called FineCap. Equipped with 20 microencapsulation technologies, FineCap provides better performance of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), functional ingredients, dietary supplements, flavors, fragrances, cosmetics, and personal care products.

“Brands that seek to expand their products’ qualities and boost their product portfolios will find many benefits to the FineCap platform,” said Cuie Yan, PhD, vice president of encapsulation, in a press release. “FineCap takes microencapsulation a step further by offering a variety of technologies and targeting customers’ specific needs in tackling active ingredients with unique characteristics, such as strong odor, taste or stability problems that challenge formulators.”

FineCap protects APIs from degradation, unpleasant tastes or aroma, and maintains its efficacy by controlling its release. It enables flavors to thrive in food and beverages with integrity, intensity, and extended shelf-life, and in fragrances, it guarantees brands to control the precise fragrance release rate, location, and duration. Personal care products benefit from its protection of delicate top-notes and cosmetic actives from oxygen, moisture, temperature, and light deterioration. 

“Our comprehensive FineCap platform has been serving and supporting formulators looking to launch market-winning products with better qualities and shelf-life that consumers are seeking,” said Yan. “We’re enabling brands to quickly create products from innovative concepts, benchtop development, to pilot and full commercial manufacturing, with improved efficacy, taste, color, texture, and shelf life, along with vegan, organic, Kosher, or Halal certificate.”
