Abstract:

 

The main aim of this article is to collect the scattered knowledge of Cosmetotextiles and present it to the world scientific community for scrutiny. Various aspects of Cosmetotextiles are compiled systematically and oriented towards product development. The technology of Cosmetotextiles is at the neonatal stage. The joint efforts of textile technologists, biochemists, cosmetic experts and medicos can achieve challenging targets in the field of Cosmetotextiles. Various derivatives of metals, plants and animals are used in pure and derivative form to generate cosmetic functionality in textiles. Various routes for the incorporation of cosmetic potentail in textiles are available, of which microencapsulation and the use of cyclodextrin as cage material are the most popular. The content of moisture on skin surface is a key parameter in maintaining skin elasticity and glowing potential. The characterization of Cosmetotextiles is a difficult task, but the Europeans have taken the lead by classifying and standardising the testing of the cosmetic effects of cosmetotextiles.
