A series of the solid emulsion gels with the oil volume fraction in the range of 0-50% were synthesized through a polycondensation reaction between activated p-nitrophenyl carbonate poly(ethylene glycol) and protein-stabilized oil-in-water emulsions. The resultant structures were investigated in terms of swelling behavior, composition, morphology, mechanical and skin hydration properties. Solid emulsions gels share the properties of both hydrogel and emulsion. Similar to the classical hydrogel… CONTINUE READING
