Antioxidant cosmetotextiles: cotton coating with nanoparticles containing vitamin E

  • Process Biochemistry, 59, Part A, 46-51, 2017

Publisher: Elsevier


In the present study, we coated cotton fabrics with protein-based nanoparticles containing vitamin E (α-tocopherol) by the pad-cure method. Scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy, and air permeability analysis of coated samples confirmed the fixation of the nanoparticles onto the fabric’s surface. The antioxidant activity of the coated fabrics was evaluated by 2,2′-Azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) free radicals reduction. Samples coated with nanoparticles containing the highest amount of encapsulated vitamin E (20% of the oil phase) showe ...
