Materials Development

Using our materials science expertise we help you enhance your product performance to help you stay ahead of your competitors. At Lucideon we use the latest technology and innovative thinking to identify and develop novel material formulations that give you the competitive edge, from increasing bioactivity to controlling the release of active ingredients.

Using our expertise in materials, including ceramics, glasses, metals, polymers and composites, we can help you to optimize your current personal care and home care products and develop the products, applications and technologies of the future.  We work as an extension of your personal care and home care R&D teams so we can ensure that you’re first to market.

We have state-of-the-art analytical capabilities, including a world-leading advanced surface analysis department, lab and pilot-scale processing facilities, and teams with both extensive materials expertise and wide-ranging cross-industry knowledge… and importantly, creativity!

We can help you to:

  • Make existing products, processes and technologies perform better – by developing or identifying alternative materials and reformulating
  • Add functionality to what your products do
  • Reduce the cost of your products and processes
  • Improve yields by using alternative synthesis and processing technologies.

Our novel material formulations and technologies can offer benefits such as:

  • increasing bioactivity
  • extending shelf life
  • controlling the release of active ingredients
  • encapsulating challenging molecules
  • providing antimicrobial features.

If you want to stay ahead of the game in the oral care, skin care and hair care products industries, or in the home care products industries, give us a call and see if we can help you come up with the next big thing.
