Research in the design and development of new cosmetic formulations is one of the scientific fields that increases more rapidly due to various causes. Firstly, the cosmetic companies are interested in continuous improvement of their products to achieve the highest possible efficiency without excessively increasing the cost, while respecting the current legislation regarding prohibited and restricted ingredients. Moreover, the cosmetic industry is closely linked to the world of fashion and then a good marketing of the products requires continuous evolution to provide to the users novel and timeliness products. In this special issue will be collected scientific contributions on the newest developments in materials and technology related to the raw materials used as cosmetic ingredients and also the manufacturing of cosmetic products today. Thus, this issue is devoted to general topics of interest such as nanotechnology in cosmetics, encapsulation, preservation of finished products, the advantages and difficulties in the use of natural ingredients, and also to discuss the new materials used as actives in some cosmetics such as hair products (including hair dyes), personal hygiene products, specific ingredients for skin care, sunscreens, decorative cosmetic, perfumes etc.. All this, with the aim of providing readers an update on recent developments in the cosmetic field.
