Abstract: A new technique for forming liposome of lamellar gels calls for the build up of a nanoarchitecture of lipsomes (lamellar phases) crosslinked with hydrophobically modified water-soluble polymers (self assembly of vesicles and polymers).

The human skin is a complex biomaterial consisting of layers identified as the stratum corneum, epidermis and dermis. An intact barrier function is essential for a healthy skin. Diffusion of substances through stratum corneum is usually very slow.
