Emerging Trends of Nanotechnology in Cosmetics
Garima Nagpal, Rashi Chaudhary, Ratiram G Chaudhary, N.B. Singh
Cosmetics attract most age groups from teenagers to old age. Cosmetic goods now contain a variety of nanoparticle and nanomaterial types. Nano cosmeceuticals have changed the era of cosmetics as they have advanced delivery mechanisms with task specifications. They are used in nail, hair, lip, and skin care products by cosmetic giants including Estee Lauder, L’oreal, Nivea, Zelens, and Derma Swiss, etc., and have patented the use of dozens of “nanosome particles.” The global market for cosmetics using nanotechnology is worth millions of dollars and increasing at 7.14% annually. Liposomes, niosomes, nanostructured lipid carriers, solid lipid nanoparticles, gold nanoparticles, nanoemulsions, and nanosomes are novel nanocarriers that are now used in a variety of cosmeceuticals for drug delivery to achieve site specification, improved stability, biocompatibility, extended action, and increased drug-loading capacity. In this chapter use of various nanocarriers in cosmetic applications with their safety concerns will be discussed.
