Liposomes can be used in the delivery of various cosmetic materials, vitamins, and minerals throughout the body, typically to the skin, for an array of advantages such as antioxidant benefits, conditioning, and antimicrobial purposes. The liposomes may attach and fuse to the cellular membranes, releasing their contents into the target cells. Liposomes are available in different transportation forms: dispersed and emulsified. Those that contain solely aqueous materials are known as dispersed liposomes, and they tend to be small and translucent. Liposomes that enclose hydrophobic elements are considered emulsified, and they tend to be larger and more opaque. However, liposomes are very useful in that they are also able to simultaneously transport both oil- and water-soluble actives within one vesicle; the hydrophilic molecules are encapsulated within the aqueous center of the biomolecule, whereas the hydrophobic elements are incorporated into the lipid bilayer.
