The aim of this work was preparation and characterization of o/w nano and microemulsions containing Crodamol PC® as the oil phase. An influence of surfactants system applied in formulations on the properties of the obtained emulsions has been studied. The emulsions were prepared by phase inversion composition method. The measurement of the internal phase droplet size and the study of rheological properties were done. The obtained results showed that the prepared transparent emulsion systems are nano and microemulsion formulation. Moreover, it was concluded that the microemulsions stability and the size of the internal phase droplets depended on the type and the concentration of emulsifier and on the ratio of water phase to oil. Rheological studies have confirmed that the obtained microemulsions showed pseudoplastic behaviour.
