Special Issue "Delivery Systems for Cosmetics"
A special issue of Cosmetics (ISSN 2079-9284).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019)
Delivery systems are widely used in cosmetic products, and refer to the formulation technologies used to protect and stabilise the active ingredients put in cosmetics. A delivery system is as crucial to the cosmetic formulation as the actives themselves. A good system preserves valuable skincare actives, without the use of harmful chemicals. A variety of delivery systems have been used or have the potential to be used in the cosmetic formulations, such as lipid nanoparticles, microneedles, patches, and polymeric and emulsion-based delivery systems. This Special Issue will address new developments in the delivery systems for cosmetics, covering recent advantages and future directions in the field, by original research papers and review articles.
