Abstract
Nanotechnology is the combined field of chemistry, biology, engineering, electronics and material sciences .Hence, it is applied for manufacturing of biotechnology, materials, medical diagnosis and treatment, textile, space exploration, etc. In cosmetic field, application of nanotechnology has been introduced since 1961. Widely used nanomaterials in cosmetic are: liposome, polysome, noisome, nanoemulsions, gold nanoparticles, etc. Majorly, nanomaterials are used in hair care products like hair shine serums, conditioners and in skin care products like anti-wrinkle creams, anti-aging creams. The cosmetic industry was the first to implement nanotechnological principles in the product formulation. More than one thousand registered nanotechnology based products on global market in 2009, but more than 13% were classified as cosmetic product use. To overcome the drawbacks regarding the traditional products, use of nanotechnology is escalating in the area of cosmecuticals. Hence cosmecuticals are regarded as the fastest growing sector of the personal care industry. As nanotechnology finds new formulations, new applications and use of nanoparticulate structures in the production of cosmetics or cosmecuticals. The use of nanomaterials is on increase due to great functions.
