Nano-Technology In Anti-Aging Skin Treatments

Posted for Skin Care On June 4, 2009


Anti-aging skin treatments have come a long way. There are a wide variety of anti aging skin care products in the market. These arecreams, lotions or other formulations that work to improve the appearance of aging skin.

How do I know the effectiveness of anti-aging skin care products?

One of the primary factors that determine the effectiveness of anti-aging skin care products is the delivery of active ingredients within them. Anti-aging products should have a delivery system that lets the active ingredients reach the skin cells or inner layer of the skin. When this fails to happen, the product will cease to show any results.

Why do treatments fail to perform then?

One reason why active ingredients fail to penetrate through the skin surface is because the molecules are too big to pass through the cell membranes!


The answer to the problem lies in Nanotechnology!

Nanotechnology forms, controls and manipulates the small particles of active ingredients that cannot be directly handled. This means that ingredients which are unable to enter the skin surface due to their physical shape can now do so effectively. Nanotechnology has actually revamped the way ingredients of skin care products react on the skin. they are able to penetrate better and thus be more effective.

Nanotechnology breaks down the active ingredients into nano-particles or makes use of nanosomes (nanometer sized liposomes) that allow vitamins and other ingredients to penetrate more effectively into the skin surface.

There are a variety of sunscreens in the market that make use of nanotechnology and cater effectively to the skin concerns. Here are some popular picks.
