Novel silicone-based vesicles can encapsulate and subsequently release a variety of cosmetic actives--both oil-soluble and water-soluble. This article discusses the silicone polyethers used to develop these vesicles and the methods used to evaluate both the silicone polyethers and the vesicles. One study describes the use of these vesicles to encapsulate retinyl palmitate.
