Delivering Actives via Solid Lipid Nanoparticles and Nanostructured Lipid Carriers: Part I
By: Johann W. Wiechers, PhD, JW Solutions, and Eliana B. Souto
Posted: September 29, 2010, from the October 2010 issue of Cosmetics & Toiletries.
- Figure 1. Schematic representation of SLNs (left) and NLCs (right); modified from Reference 4.
- Figure 2. The production process of lipid nanoparticles using cold (left, light gray) and hot (right, dark gray) high pressure homogenization; reproduced with permission from Reference 4.
- Figure 3. Models of actives incorporated in lipid nanoparticles, homogeneous matrix; a) type I SLNs, b) type II SLNs, and c) type III SLNs; modified from Reference 4.
- Figure 4. The effect of adding chemically different lipids to a pure lipid; at left, the melting and crystallization temperatures of a pure lipid are shown—both quite high and with a relatively small difference (i.e., supercooling).
- Figure 5. Summary of selection criteria of lipid materials to be used in SLNs and NLCs
