Since this research was conducted for industrial applications, its use in personal care is speculative at this point. However, Lee finds the technology could possibly be used in two regards—for the creation of new, iridescent structural colors, and to prevent cracking in cosmetic films.
“We were able to generate structural color films successfully without any heat treatments, which typically are required,” noted Lee. Such structural colors could provide iridescence to color cosmetics. In addition, Lee suspects the films could be useful for cosmetic applications where cracking is an issue, such as in nail color, potentially to prevent it.
Biopolymers are Becoming Increasingly Important to Our Personal Care Industry
Polymers: Pathway to Versatile Technology book compiles more than 30 papers on topics such as biopolymers and biomedical materials, polymers as a delivery for sunscreens, and formulating with polymers. A chapter is devoted to common biopolymers such as proteins, DNA, starches, and cellulose.
