What is the problem with microcapsules?

The fragrance in laundry detergents and fabric conditioners has a significant influence on the purchasing decision for consumers. In order to release fragrance over time and to keep clothes smelling fresh, many products use hidden plastic microcapsules.

This protects the fragrance molecules from releasing immediately, enabling a slow release of fragrance as clothing is worn.

What is the environmental impact?

Plastic fragrance microcapsules in laundry detergent pose an environmental concern. When washed, they release microplastics into waterways, harming aquatic life and polluting ecosystems.

Additionally, these microplastics may enter the food chain, potentially impacting human health. With incoming regulation phasing out microplastics, a sustainable solution is needed.

The power of Morro Micro

Morro Micro is a plant based material that can be used to form protective shells for fragrance and other active ingredients in liquids and lotions, replacing the need for hidden plastics. With no chemical crosslinking, this material is fully biodegradable in marine and freshwater environments.

A natural alternative

Using Morro Micro, brands can offer the same fragrance experience their customers are used to, without the environmental impact. This also means brands can futureproof against incoming policy, such as the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) ban on intentionally added microplastics
