Use of nanosystems to improve delivery of polyphenols for skin repair

CADDEO CARLA Malta Polyphenols 2019Dr. Carla Caddeo  will give a presentation entitled "Use of nanosystems to improve delivery of polyphenols for skin repair" during the Special session dedicated to Polyphenols and Skin.

Dr. Carla Caddeo from the University of Cagliari, Italy will join the 13th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Malta Polyphenols 2019 which will be held in Malta on September 30 -  October 1, 2019.

Summary of presentation: The beneficial health effects of polyphenols have been extensively studied in the past years. However, their potential therapeutic and prophylactic applications are restricted by low bioavailability, poor water solubility and stability. In this framework, nanoparticulate systems are gaining increased attention as innovative delivery systems for poorly bioavailable compounds, as they ensure high stability, incorporation of hydrophilic/hydrophobic substances, high carrier capacity, and feasibility of various administration routes. Additionally, they can be designed to allow controlled release of the payload, thus enabling reduction of dosing frequency: bioefficacy is amplified and side-effects and costs are reduced, while increasing patient compliance.


During this special session, we will highlight the strategic roles of polyphenols and phenolics compounds as antioxidants (anti-UV) and anti-inflammatory agents. We  will  also discuss the polyphenols formulation and skin pigmentation. We will dedicate time to all innovations related to polyphenols' use in skin care and skin ageing.

You can submit your Abstract and innovation before July 15, 2019.
