Skin fights constantly during the day to be saved from free radicals caused by UV rays and pollution. However, skin cells repair damage and restore complexion during sleep. Enhancement of repair and restoration can be achieved more effectively by the cosmetic products such as antioxidants applied during night. In this study, functional fabrics were prepared for single- use which are impregnated with three different delivery systems containing vitamin E, the mostly known antioxidant ingredient. Comparison of vitamin E release from microcapsule, microemulsion and solid lipid nanoparticle systems embedded in polypropylene fabrics (PP) was aimed in this study. Final purpose of preparing a cosmetotextile for ocular area was to obtain prolonged activity of vitamin E. Following particle size measurement and scanning electron microscopic analyses of all delivery systems prepared, systems embedded in polypropylene nonwoven fabrics were tested for vitamin E meant to be released over time. According to the results obtained, vitamin E was found to be successfully incorporated into all three delivery systems and release of vitamin E was determined to be prolonged best by solid lipid nanoparticles.
