This issue of C&T magazine highlights three areas relating to delivery in personal care. Wash-on delivery of actives via a bar soap is explored by Durfee and Devine, while microneedles, borrowed from the medical field, are considered for personal care in Eppler’s article. Finally, multilamellar vesicles are studied by Hough et al. for cleansing applications. In addition to delivery topics, this issue of C&T magazine presents the annual Sun Care Formulary.

In the present article, the authors characterize a multilamellar vesicle (MLV) system used in personal care and verify its structure via X-ray scattering, rheology and fluorescence microscopy. This enabled the study of MLV formation to investigate bulk rheology characteristics. The results are presented here as application-relevant properties.
