Liposomes are nano-vectors of cosmetic active ingredients obtained from phospholipids of plant origin. They can transport, with good speed, active proncipes contained in them directly in the dermis and in the epidermis (depending on their size).
The use of liposomes in the cosmetic field offers numerous advantages:
- Possibility to convey hydrophilic and lipophilic substances
- High affinity for biological membranes
- Ability to improve skin hydration
- Toxicological safety, as the natural phospholipids that make them are very similar structurally to those present in cell membranes, are biocompatible and biodegradable.
