As a carrier of active ingredients, the Tetrahedral Spheres inherent in Terra Alba enables a product to maintain uniform and sustained release rates of an active agent, thereby reducing application frequency and initial overdosage. Release rates can be controlled through selection of particle size, and encapsulation. On the molecular level the twin sheet structure of the chemical bonds have just enough space between the sheets to serve as a carrier and release mechanism for added purposeful compounds, otherwise known as cation exchange.
- Maintains uniform and sustained release rates
- Natural and nontoxic material
