Natural ingredient complex evens and lightens skin

One of the strongest trends driving the global skin care market today is skin whitening, lightening and evening of the skin tone. Ever current, this trend dates back as far back as ancient China and Japan, and does not fade with time. To this day whiter, flawless skin complexion is associated with health, nobility, purity and younger perception of age.

Greener chemistry for fragrance extracts

Epidermal stem cells (ESC) are necessary for epidermis renewing. These cells are also known to be more or less resistant to different types of apoptosis, in comparison with their keratinocyte counterparts: UV-induced cell death,1 oxidative stress-induced apoptosis2 or anoïkosis (a particular apoptosis resulting from loss of adhesion to extracellular matrix).3

Efficacy and capsulation of sodium poly-??-glutamate

Vesicles of poly-?-glutamate (?-PGA) were capsulated in order to improve skin efficacy and increase an adsorption into the epidermis. The capsulating method of ?-PGA was investigated to demonstrate the formation of self-assemblies by passing through a high pressure microfluidiser, rheological properties and physiological activity of stratum corneum (SC) by using ?-PGA vesicles.
