  Nanoparticles are very active ingredients of cosmetics and dermatics
 
Nanoparticles transport lipid soluble active agents into the skin.


Description

  • Nanoparticles are spherical bodies which are covered with a monolayer of phosphatidylcholine.
  • The inside of the nanoparticles normally consists of an oil compatible with skin, which is able to take up lipid soluble active agents.
  • Dispersions of nanoparticles are cloudy to milky fluids and closely related to natural milk.

Use

  • Nanoparticles are used in preparations for skin care, prevention and dermatology. 
  • Nanoparticles are only visible under the electron microscope. Like liposomes nanoparticles transport active agents into the horny layer.
