Nourishing the skin, feeding it in an efficient way and providing all the molecules needed to prevent aging, protect from different threats and maintain it in healthy condition is one of the main target for modern cosmetics. Skin does not have any active digestive system to rely on in order to improve the uptake of what it is delivered through cosmetic formulations so the nourishing ingredients have to be already bioavailable to deliver the desired effect. Unfortunately not all the molecules generally used as nourishing or active ingredients are bioavailable for our skin, but nature can offer interesting strategies we can mimic in order to improve bioavailability and therefore effectiveness of the active ingredients contained in cosmetic formulations.
