Topical application of lutein as an innovative antioxidant, anti-stress and blue light filter, which is able to protect skin from photo damage, has got a special cosmetic and pharmaceutical interest in the last decade. Lutein is poorly soluble, and was therefore incorporated into nanocarriers for dermal delivery: solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN), nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) and a nanoemulsion (NE). Nanocarriers were produced by high pressure homogenization. The mean particle size was in… CONTINUE READING
