The most conventional methods to eliminate microbes involves liquid disinfectants. Formulations that contain such components are, however, pharmaceuticals and medicines. In addition, several adverse side effects have been described for this type of products, including increased allergies, sensitivity, development of microbiological resistance, and toxicity, many of them caused by the synthetic ingredients used.

Alternatively, antimicrobial action can be achieved through natural components such as essential oils. Although new products which include essential oils have been introduced to the market with this purpose, many do not show effective results. Thus, the development of new formulations with better antiseptic capacity, based and reinforced with natural extracts from specific plants, is necessary to obtain effective products in this field.

This project aims to create innovative characteristics and unprecedented skin products based on synergies between Thymol, other essential oils, and natural extracts. The Team-All project aims to solve the problems of limited antiseptic capacity and sustainability of the materials used by developing and making available, for the first time, different ranges of skincare products with controlled-release properties of antiseptic active ingredients with fewer side effects.
