Liposomes and mixed micelles were used to vehiculize gallic acid, as antioxidant, when applied to different textiles
designed to be in contact with the skin as biofunctional textiles. Foulard and bath exhaustion processes were assayed
without the use of a binder. Liposomes with the antioxidant encapsulated were applied to cotton, polyamide, polyester,
acrylic, and wool, using bath exhaustion and the pad-dry process. Higher absorption was obtained with bath exhaustion
than with the pad-dry process for all fabrics. Liposome application to the different textiles showed an adequate
substantivity for most fibers. However, the high desorption of most synthetic acrylic and polyester fibers confirmed the
preferential application of cotton and polyamide as cosmetic biofunctional textiles. Moreover, this study showed that
polyamide always presented high substantivity for the two phospholipid structures and also for the antioxidant.
