Researchers produce nanodiamonds capable of delivering medicinal and cosmetic remedies through the skin
A novel approach, developed by researchers at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, provides an innovative solution. Combining techniques in nanotechnology and optics, they produced tiny (nanometric) diamond particles so small that they are capable of penetrating skin to deliver medicinal and cosmetic remedies. In addition, they created a safe, laser-based optical method that quantifies nanodiamond penetration into the various layers of the skin and determines their location and concentration within body tissue in a non-invasive manner—eliminating the need for a biopsy.
