Tropical Fruits Extract and Melatonin Encapsulated in Nanovesicles Sleeping Masks
Melatonin is an antioxidant with numerous medical and nutraceutical applications. It plays an important role in the body and assists in synchronising circadian rhythms and sleep. Melatonin is most commonly administered orally at a dosage of 2 mg for treating primary insomnia. Beside melatonin tablets, consumption of tropical fruits such as pineapples, oranges and bananas was also found to result in elevated melatonin concentration in the human body. However, the effective absorption of melatonin through oral administration varies from individuals, and diabetics or the elderly would not able to consume enough of such fruits to achieve the required melatonin concentration for treating insomnia.
Melatonin is also suitable for transdermal delivery due to its low required dose, short biological half-life, low molecular weight. This technology, in the form of a sleeping mask, is enriched with tropical fruit extracts such as pineapples, oranges, and bananas, combined with melatonin encapsulated in nanovesicles. Beyond its revitalising impact on facial skin, this dual-purpose mask also promotes tranquil sleep, offering an appealing solution for individuals seeking respite from sleep troubles without resorting to conventional melatonin tablets.
The technology is particularly advantageous for those navigating health restrictions, such as prolonged use of melatonin tablets or managing high blood sugar, and for those who prefer to regulate sugary fruit intake.
