PAIGE HERMAN & MARIE KUECHEL: Skin deeper

Abstract:
It's not a household term yet, but "nanotechnology" is poised to become the next big buzzword in the beauty industry, and you soon may be reading terms like "nanosomes" and "nanoparticles" on labels for wrinkle or acne creams. Here are the basics for navigating the nano world.

What it is

Nanotechnology itself, while relatively new as applied to cosmetics and skin care, has been around for years. It "deals with forming, controlling and manipulating small particles which cannot be seen or grabbed or otherwise directly handled," explains Elishalom Yechiel, a biochemist and president of Elsom Research Co.
