Abstract: Very few drug delivery systems are potent enough to fight against cancer yet gentle enough on the body. The Nanoparticles have been successfully utilized to create a new drug delivery system for treatment of cancer. Study and application of nanoparticles is advancing rapidly within the pharmaceutical field. These nano-sized materials, e.g., “nanoparticles”, take on novel properties and functions that differ markedly from that delivery system presently available in market. The nano-size and surface improved solubility and multi-functionality of nanoparticles. This improves the quality and the biomedical applications of the nanoparticles. The skin provides a physical barrier to the harmful effects of the external environment in the body. The skin cancer appears in the upper layer of the skin. In recent years there has been an exciting increase in the prevalence of skin cancer worldwide. Non-melanoma skin cancer is the most common diagnosed cancer in the UK accounting for a quarter of all new cancer cases. It is a slow growing form of cancer and can be present many years before detection. Several obstacles frequently still encountered with the skin cancer. In general, the best way to eliminate a problem is to eliminate the cause. This article has reviewed nanoparticulate delivery system with a view as to its impact on skin cancer.
