Technically, it has been a long journey from encapsulating ink to using electromagnetic pulsing to release drugs, and the possibility for future development of controlled release techniques seems boundless. Combined with the cosmetic industry’s constant progress in identifying active ingredients that require stabilization and targeted delivery, the future of ever improving products seems assured.

Steve Herman is the technical sales director for J&E Sozio. He has been an adjunct professor in the Fairleigh Dickinson University Masters in Cosmetic Science program since 1993, teaching Cosmetic Formulation Lab and Perfumery. His book, Fragrance Applications: A Survival Guide, was published by Allured Publishing Corp., Carol Stream, IL, in 2001.
