you got the general idea, but in the chemical field they are called "carriers".

absorption-enhancing substances

I believe that in this context "veicolante" is a substance.
The first link below suggests that a "veicolante" is a substance that allows other substances be absorbed.

Also notice the second link from a patent - it may offer useful language - it talks about absorption-enhancing properties and it also uses the word "vehicle"; see if it could fit in your case. Where are the Chemistry experts?

Good Luck
