MinaSolve™ CapEasy is a patent-pending new liquid form of Capryloyl Glycine, a multi-functional ingredient for the cleansing and protection of skin and scalp. MinaSolve™ CapEasy is easier to use than the common powder form of Capryloyl Glycine. This product is a mild anti-acne ingredient: it reduces sebum production by inhibiting the enzyme 5α-reductase. It also inhibits the growth of Propionibacterium acnes. Furthermore it functions as a water-soluble anti-dandruff ingredient: it shows anti-microbial activity against the yeast Malassezia furfur (Pityrosporum ovale), and it simultaneously reduces the production of fat by the scalp.

MinaSolve™ CapEasy can be used in deodorant applications: it inhibits the growth of bacteria that are involved in the formation of body odours. This product can also help to protect cosmetic formulations, thanks to its general anti-microbial properties. it can be used to reduce or even substitute traditional preservatives.
