LIPOSOME IN COSMETIC DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM OF PHOSPHOLIPID AND PHENOLIC COMPONENTAbstract
Liposomes are considered to be safe for usage; they have been used hugely in cosmetics. Biologically obtained compounds of phospholipids have a high affinity to the skin’s surface. Liposomes are highly permeable and have more storage capacity on the stratum corneum and also it is considered a chemically active agent to the skin. Most future studies on liposomes involve drug delivery in cosmetics. Liposome formulations are prepared from phospholipids of variant sources like egg and soya; they were differentiated in terms of their result on the skin like water content, Elasticity, Barrier function. Liposome has a variety of phospholipids giving a variety of effects on the skin humanity. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity is a category poses by the plant of phenolic compound metabolite. The ideal property of the compounds are stable and also act as a bioactive ingredient in plants, but it will give the property after the process of extraction; they are considered to be very sensitive to light and heat sources; they have the property like speed metabolization, low solubility, and bioavailability. This article gives a good knowledge of liposomes in cosmetics, particularly in phospholipid and phenolic compounds additionally, it gives a view of novel methods in the formulation of liposomes and discussion about marketed liposomes in cosmetics.
