Abstract: In recent years, textile materials have found applications in cosmetic field. A new sector of cosmetic textiles is opened up and several commercial cosmetic textile products are currently available in the market. Microencapsulation technology is an effective technique to control the release properties of active ingredients that prolong the functionality of cosmetic textiles. This paper addresses the historical background of microencapsulation technology, its significant advantages and the most commonly used microencapsulation methods. Some typical examples of commercially available microencapsulation based cosmetic textile products are also examined.
