The use of nanotechnology significantly influences the development of modern carriers enabling the efficient delivery of active compounds with low bioavailability. Nanoemulsions are the most advanced nanoparticle systems for the systemic delivery of biologically active agents, and the controlled delivery and targeting of active ingredients. It is a thermodynamically stable isotropic system in which two immiscible liquids (water and oil) are mixed into one phase through appropriate surfactants or their mixture. The use of nanoemulsions in skincare enables the delivery of active compounds to skin’s deeper layers and its more effective care.
Vitamin C is involved in the metabolism of neurotransmitters, lipids, and collagen, and is a significant biological antioxidant. It stimulates collagen synthesis and inhibits tyrosinase, which reduces skin discoloration. Due to its antioxidant properties, it provides some protection against UV radiation. Vitamin C encapsulation prevents its degradation, and its use in the form of a nanoemulsion enables its active action in the deeper layers of the skin.
Vitamin E is called the “elixir of youth” due to its high antioxidant properties. It minimizes the signs of skin aging, has a moisturizing and elasticizing effect, and inhibits inflammation. Its application to the skin reduces erythema and swelling resulting from exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Its use in nanoemulsions allows it to work more effectively in the skin.
Curcumin is a compound from the group of polyphenols derived from turmeric root (Curcuma longa), also known as turmeric or Indian saffron. It is a powerful antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It accelerates the healing of wounds on the skin, improves its color, and stimulates collagen synthesis.
Hemp oil is obtained from hemp (Cannabic sativa L). It has a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. . It is an effective means of fighting acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Thanks to its high content of nutrients and unsaturated fatty acids, e.g. Linoleic acid, α-linoleic acid, oleic acid, ß-caryophyllene, ɣ-tocopherol, and ß-sitosterol, it nourishes and moisturizes the skin.
