The cosmetics industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that is comprised of products with an array of chemical makeups. They are generally mixtures of chemical compounds, some being derived from natural sources and many being synthetics.

Typical examples of the application of nanotechnology in cosmetics are dioxide titanium nanoparticles in sunscreens (that give complete protection without the effect of a white layer on the skin), the use of solid lipid nanoparticles for slow release of fragrance in perfumes, or creating nanovesicles as carriers to provide a better penetration of the active ingredients on the skin.

Our scientists understand the foundational aspects of this market and work with a variety of projects including most recently a company seeking to improve the eyelash adhesive capabilities of their product. Let us know how we can help provide solutions to your cosmetic project.
