  • Patent number: 8460792
    Abstract: A microcapsule which is able to stably retain a benefit agent such as a volatile substance for an extended period, and which is also suitable for encapsulating fragrances and the like. Such capsule encapsulates a mixture comprising a volatile substance, and an additive that has a higher melting point than the volatile substance and is able to undergo mutual dissolution with the volatile substance, wherein the mixture exhibits a melting point range, and a portion of, or all of, that melting point range falls within a range from ?20 to 60° C. The present invention also relates to consumer products including cleaning and/or treatment compositions comprising such microcapsules, and processes of making and using same.

  • Publication number: 20120071391
    Abstract: The present invention relates to benefit agent containing delivery particles, compositions comprising said particles, and processes for making and using the aforementioned particles and compositions. When employed in compositions, for example, cleaning or fabric care compositions, such particles increase the efficiency of benefit agent delivery, there by allowing reduced amounts of benefit agents to be employed. In addition to allowing the amount of benefit agent to be reduced, such particles allow a broad range of benefit agents to be employed.

  • Publication number: 20120028874
    Abstract: The present application relates to particles comprising a benefit agent encapsulated by a first layer that is in turn encapsulated by a second material, and products comprising such particles, as well as processes for making and using such particles and products comprising such particles. The process of making such particles does not unduly degrade the benefit agent and when such particles are employed in a product, they are stable, yet they release the desired amount of benefit agent when such product is used as intended.
