Around the Bay

Abstract:
Though nanotechnology is a popular buzzword that many people don't understand, a new plant is using the concept to make something all too common: cosmetics. Dermazone Solutions spent $2-million to rehab a 33,000-square-foot building off 30th Avenue N last year, consolidating its operations in Orlando and Clearwater into the new plant. The company produces nano-based skin creams, sunscreens and other "cosmeceuticals" under the brands Celazome and Kara Vita. Using patents held by a professor at the University of South Florida, the company has branched out, producing cosmetics for other groups. "We've really come into our own," said Deborah Duffey, president of Dermazone. Dermazone uses nanotechnology to help products work better by sending them to affected areas directly, Duffey said. Rather than apply moisturizer and have it sit on top of your skin, for example, Dermazone products aim to move the moisturizer to the lower layers of skin that need it. The company uses "microspheres" called Lyphazomes, which are tiny balls that contain cosmetic products. These spheres penetrate the outer layer of skin before releasing one or more products slowly over time.
