Due to the novel structural and interfacial characteristics, two-dimensional(2D) layered are nanomaterials awarded unique properties in transdermal absorption, sunscreen, active targeting delivery, and stable nanocapsules with great advantage in cosmetics industry. According to different layered charges, the typical 2D layered nanomaterials involve cationic and anionic clays(such as hydratalcite). Based on recent development in this field, this article reviews the characteristics and performance of 2D nanomaterials, particularly on history, current situation and market prospect in cosmetics application.

Key words: layered materials, hydrotalcite, cosmetics, two-dimensional nanomaterials
