Abstract: A new technology to achieve o/w microemulsions allows the formulation of transparent products with low surfactant content. The PIT Nanotechnology approach gives cosmetic/pharmaceutical o/w microemulsions in one step with a broad variety of surfactants, co

Considerable efforts have been undertaken in the past decade to investigate new routes to o/w microemulsions for cosmetic or pharmacutical purposes.1-7 This delivery system is transparent, easy to prepare and thermodynamically stable. The advantages of o/w microemulsions are summarized in the sidebar below.
