Herein, we present the development of Rhodamine B labeled thermoresponsive dendritic nanogels (dNGs), which penetrate in human skin upon a thermal trigger. The easiness of the synthetic approach enabled tailoring the nanogels properties, as size and transition temperature. Skin penetration studies highlight their strong potential for pharmaceutical and biomedical application.
