The international biotechnology company has revealed that its subsidiary, Austrianova Singapore has got the go ahead from the Personal Care Products Council to cross into the cosmetics sector as a result of its work on patented encapsulation technology.

The PCPC has included Gel8 (pronounced gelate), an ingredient name assigned to the company by the International Nomenclature Cosmetic for its proprietary cell encapsulation materials, in the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary & Handbook as well as in the next update of the Cosmetic industry's International Buyer's Guide.

The combined Dictionary/Handbook contains more than 19,100 INCI labeling names for the US, European Union, Japan and other countries.

"We are thrilled that our work has enabled us to receive this designation. Most importantly, holding the INCI name is necessary for product safety and visibility as well as a significant step forward for using the Cell-in-a-Box(R) and Bac-in-a-Box(R) technology throughout the cosmetics industry​," said Dr. John Dangerfield, ASPL chief operating officer.
