NANOEMULSION AS A NOVEL TRANSDERMAL DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMAbstract
The nanoemulsion is one of the most efficient dispersed nanosystems of droplet size ranging to submicron size. Nanoemulsion are generally transparent or semi transparent system characterized by high stability. They are characterized by high stability. Submicron droplet size and high surfactant concentration makes it an efficient transdermal delivery vehicle. Research works proves that nanoemulsion is far more efficient drug delivery system than other transdermal drug delivery system. The efficacy of the nanoemulsion is enhanced by the nature and type of surfactant and co-surfactant used. Thus in this article ability of the nanoemulsion as a transdermal and topical delivery system is reviewed.
