Pickering Emulsions Stabilised by Biodegradable Particles Offer a Double Level of Controlled Delivery of Hydrophobic Drugs

Pickering emulsions are stabilised by solid particles in place of surfactants. Their “surfactant-free” character makes them attractive for cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications because classical emulsions comprising surfactants often show adverse effects such as irritancy, hemolytic behavior, etc. Thus, biocompatible and biodegradable Pickering emulsions would provide an obvious benefit over current technology.
