The aim of this study was to prepare, characterize and evaluate electrospun polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and cellulose acetate (CA) nanofibers loaded with capsicum extract (CE) for use in topical skin treatments. CE, 0.5, 1 or 2 wt %, was loaded into PVA and CA electrospun fiber mats. Various properties of the CE-loaded fiber mats as well as release and skin permeation were investigated. The average diameters of these fibers ranged from 251-368 nm. The release rate of capsaicin from CE-loaded as-spun PVA was faster than that of the CA fiber mats and increased as the CE content in CE-loaded as-spun PVA and CA increased. The release kinetics of the CA and PVA fibers followed the Higuchi equation. The percentages of CE that permeated the shed snake skin with PVA and CA fiber mats containing 2 wt % CE after 24 h were 60% and 20%, respectively. The results suggest a potential use of PVA and CA nanofibers being used to control skin permeation of capsicum extract. Our research suggests the potential application of CE-loaded PVA electrospun mats as transdermal drug delivery systems.
