Skin Delivery Systems
Transdermals, Dermatologicals, and Cosmetic Actives
edited by John J. Wille

Skin Delivery Systems: Transdermals, Dermatologicals and Cosmetic Actives brings together the emerging fields of cosmetic actives with new advances in skin delivery technologies. It provides a methodical and systematic explanation of technologies used to transport pharmaceuticals and cosmetic actives through the skin's barriers.

Features:

  • basic principles of dermatology and skin penetration
  • describes and explains the most current methods of transdermal transport
  • new materials, such as amphiphilic polymers
  • new formulation methods, such as miniemulsions
  • variations on technologies such as sonophoresis and iontophoresis

Skin Delivery Systems: Transdermals, Dermatologicals and Cosmetic Actives also shows the connections between skin penetration and a variety of active substances, including specialized pharmaceuticals and natural and botanical ingredients used in cosmetics. It also presents critical empirical data and design information intended to assist researchers, product developers, and testers in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
