PURCHASE, N.Y.Quality of Life Labs (QOL) acquired from Bioactives LLC the rights to the Perfect Smile® brand and the patent license for the use of MicroActive® coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in oral care products. The product line includes a full line of functional oral care products enhanced with MicroActive CoQ10; the co-branded products will be sold as a part of the Quality of Life line.
BioActives LLC, located in Worcester, Massachusetts, is an ingredient development company that recently launched the patent-pending MicroActive Technology, designed to increase active ingredients’ bioavailability with sustained release. The technology has been applied to nine active ingredients licensed by and marketed through Maypro Industries.
“It is particularly encouraging to successfully apply a technology developed for nutritional supplements to another platform of oral care products," said Dan Kagan, Ph.D., managing partner at BioActives LLC. “The oral health benefits of CoQ10 have been well researched and documented. Applying MicroActive Technology to improve on those benefits has been a unique opportunity."
