Industrialization has revolutionized the field.So, then nanotechnology is evolved and cosmetics become environmentally friendly. Different nanomaterial liposomes, solid lipid Nanoparticle, cubosomes, dendrimers etc. have advance properties for skin care. Nano emulsion is the most important part in this regard. They are widely used in gel, lotion, creams emulsions is replaced with vitamin A and its derivative for more efficient work. Sunscreen with inorganic material such as metal TiO2 and ZnO2 is better in skin care products. In this short review, some nanotechnology scope in cosmetics, in terms of dermatology and skin care products, has been significantly particularized.
