Nano cosmeceuticals also doesn’t have regulation in it. Nanoparticles provide a high entrapment power for active ingredients and show high efficacy. Mainly nanoparticles are provide better performance in cosmeceutical field. Every year new research has been done in this area like to treat skin diseases with nanoparticles. And there future aspects of creating or formulating cosmetics with recycling natural by products and re-inventing traditional ingredients. In this article we are going to focus on the different aspect nanoparticles in area of cosmetic preparation. We conclude from this study that in future cosmetic industry have to draw some attention toward sustainability in cosmetics industry.
