BeautyStreams has published the 5 trends in cosmetics industry.


Delivery systems in cosmetics

Delivery systems carry active compounds to the site of their action and used in cosmetics mainly for their ability to improve the stability of sensitive actives, their better incorporation into formulations, reduction of irritation potential, excellent penetration and sustained release properties. The most commonly used delivery systems include liposomes, niosomes, microemulsions and nanoemulsions, micro and nanoparticles, polymeric micelles and cyclodextrin complexes. Their properties and effects are different and each system is suitable for different types of compounds. Delivery systems are widely used for the incorporation of anti-aging compounds, such as whitening agents, plant extracts, antioxidants and vitamins, as well as for UV filters and fragrances.


Stable nanoemulsions: versatile applications in cosmetics and pharmacy

To overcome the low penetration rate of active ingredients into the skin vesicular carrier systems have gained a wide attention especially in the field of nanotechnology like e.g. liposomes, ethosomes or lipid nanoparticles. Also nanoemulsions are considered to be promising candidates for dermal drug delivery with the advantage of low skin irritation, high drug loading capacity and drug penetration enhancement. Among them new stable anionic nanoemulsions based on the membrane-forming, an eatable and skin friendly emulsifier derived from sunflower, became superior over other vesicular carriers. Depending on the usage of additional emollients/oils and stabilizers two different emulsions can be obtained: a multiple water-in-oil-in-water nanoemulsion (Hydro-Tops) or an oil-in-water nanoemulsion (Lipo-Tops).
Under extensive investigation, it was proven that both nanoemulsions exhibit a significant better performance in encapsulation efficiency and penetration efficacy and therefore provide a higher bioavailability of active ingredients in skin – compared to flexible liposomes, niosomes and solid lipid nanoparticles.
