Constituents of Cosmeceuticals and Implication of Nanotechnology in Cosmetics
Compounds that are used in reducing the wrinkles and fine lines for the beautification of skin, containing some biological activity are categorized under the term of “Cosmeceuticals”. With the progression in age of individuals both the demand and need of makeup and beauty enhancer products increases. Peptides, preservatives, antioxidants, vitamins and polysaccharide are the major constituents of the cosmeceuticals. Marine organisms having extraordinary anti-aging property are widely used as a basic source of cosmeceutical. Herbal materials, being less potent and toxic, also used in many cosmeceutical products. There is a massive increase in use of nanotechnology in the field of cosmeceutical. It offers improved bioavailability at minimal dose due to its small size which aid in crossing the skin barrier more easily.
