The effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation emitted by the sun are cumulative and can result in chemical changes such as the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), leading to the regular use of sunscreen. As an alternative, the use of antioxidants, such as quercetin, into sunscreen can control these effects and provide additional skin photoprotection. However, quercetin presents low stability and poor permeation, alternatively, the encapsulation in nanoparticles can improve the stability…

Nanocarriers as Active Ingredients Enhancers in the Cosmetic Industry—The European and North America Regulation Challenges
“Flawless skin is the most universally desired human feature” is an iconic statement by Desmond Morris and the lack of a global definition that identifies nanomaterials as a cosmetic ingredient is a hindrance to the development of global legislation.
Hesperetin-Based Hydrogels Protect the Skin against UV Radiation-Induced Damage.
The results showed that hesperetin was able to protect the animals' skin against UV radiation-induced skin damage and the protection mechanisms may be related to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of this natural product.

Nanostructured polymer and lipid carriers for sunscreen. Biological effects and skin permeation.
The results suggest that these nanostructures are interesting carriers for sunscreen, and BZ3 free and encapsulated in PCL nanoparticles or in SLN did not show allergic reactions in mice.

A novel sunscreen system based on tocopherol acetate incorporated into solid lipid nanoparticles
Investigation of the UV‐blocking capacity using different in vitro techniques revealed that the SLN dispersions produced in this study are at least twice as effective as their reference emulsions (conventional emulsion with identical lipid content).

Development and evaluation of sunscreen creams containing morin-encapsulated nanoparticles for enhanced UV radiation protection and antioxidant activity
In vitro and in vivo skin permeation studies of sunscreen creams containing morin NPs indicated excellent deposition of morin within the skin, which confirmed outstanding UV radiation protection as well as antioxidant properties.
