Ethosomes are elastic lipid vesicular drug delivery systems embodying relatively high concentration of alcohol. These “soft vesicles” are very efficient in transporting active substances through the stratum corneum into the deeper layers of the skin than conventional liposomes. A proposed mechanism of the percutaneous permeation enhancing effect of ethosomal system is the dual fluidizing effect of alcohol on the ethosomal lipid layers and on the stratum corneum lipids. Ethosomes can act as a… CONTINUE READING
