About

Skin infections occur commonly and often present therapeutic challenges to practitioners due to the growing concerns regarding multidrug-resistant bacterial, viral, and fungal strains. Topical skin infections commonly occur and often present therapeutic challenges to practitioners, despite the numerous existing antimicrobial agents available today. The necessity for developing new antimicrobial means has increased significantly due to growing concerns regarding multidrug-resistant bacterial, viral, and fungal strains. Common examples for topical skin infections include diaper rash, cold sores, and tinea (also called pityriasis) versicolor. Diaper or Pad rash is a form of irritant contact dermatitis. EnCap Biotech’s antimicrobials solutions are formulations that share the common aim of reducing the possibility of skin irritation and infection/sepsis. The main objective is to develop natural and clean label antimicrobial coating, gels/creams or wound dressings that can be customized to meet the need of the clients and demonstrate broad spectrum in vitro antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus or Candida albicans. The formulation consists of a variety of natural extracts (i.e. lemon oil, tea polyphenol, etc.), bacteriocin and some metal micro/nano particles (e.g. Silver/Zinc/Copper nanoparticles). Natural biopolymers (e.g. alginate/chitosan/potato/corn/cationic starch) will be used as a carrier for antimicrobial agent.

Key Benefits

Reduce the possibility of skin irritation, infection/sepsis and promote healing, while being natural and clean label.
