Microcapsules containing Cloves essential oil

01. Product description

"Dry microcapsules of clove oil, obtained from the buds of the Eugenia Caryophyllata plant, obtained by coacervation in order to protect the active ingredient and to allow the formulation of solid oral forms (hard capsules, singledose dispersible sachets) while preserving its therapeutic properties. The dimensions of the microcapsules are included between 100 and 600 μm, with an oil content of up to 85%."

02. General information

Cloves contain flavonoids, tannins, triterpenes and other volatile compounds, among which we mention in particular eugenol, a basic component that is responsible for the analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties (in particular for the oral cavity) [1] attributed to this essential oil. Antioxidant qualities [2] are also conferred to this same active ingredient.
