The antiradical and UV spectroscopic properties of the most completed in the cosmetic industry water-propylene glycol plant extracts produced at the endocrine enzyme plant, the content of flavonoids and other characteristics, are studied. Correlation analysis of the results is carried out. The close correlation of direct photometric data of extracts with the indices of the content of biologically active compounds and the prospects for using this method, as well as the DPPH test, for the production control are demonstrated.


Tattoos as New kind of the Art and Possibilities for Cosmetic Makers

While tattoos were once associated with people in the military or individuals who spent time in prison, these inked designs are now found among all segments of the population. More people are finding these designs to be appealing and perfect for their lifestyles. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, an estimated 45.0 million Americans have one. Other studies have estimated that 21,0% of adults had at least one tattoo in 2012, an increase from 14,0% in 2008. Over the five years to 2020, industry revenue is forecast to grow at an annualized rate of 9,1% to $1.1 billion. Because of this, more and more cosmetic companies are trying to pay attention to the tattoo care problem.

Marine Glycobiology: New Anti-aging Molecules
Ch.-H. Morice, Lessonia, Ju. Popova. Revada Company

French company Lessonia has developed a hydrolysation technology applied to fucoidans. This technology involves hydrolysing these fucoidan polymers to obtain precise fractions of biologically active oligosaccharides. The fucoidan’s low molecular weight is globally unique. The mass of molecular weight < 2 kDa can be absorbed directly through the human skin. The hydrolysation process increases the skin care and anti-ageing effect of the fucoidan compared to the standard macromolecular structure. Lessonia developed two active ingredients from fucoidans: FucoreverseTM is an anti-ageing ingredient and FucowhiteTM a whitening ingredient.

Peptides in Cosmetis

The use of peptides in cosmeceutical products has increased dramatically, and this highlights the need to acquire in-depth knowledge of the different molecules as well as the physiological principles underlying their use. The commercial potential for these molecules is high, especially for those peptide sequences with cosmetic activity (e.g., anti-ageing, antioxidant, whitening). Nowadays, peptides can be developed or modified in numerous ways for solubility, better penetration, increased receptor activity, etc. Selected peptides have excellent nontoxicity and stability records.

Revitalenz® 200 – Liquid Detergent Enzyme 3-in-1 from DuPont

A recent global fabric care study carried out by DuPont Industrial Biosciences highlighted significant consumer dissatisfaction with pilling and color fading on garments after using most detergents. In response, DuPont developed Revitalenz® 200, the only cellulase enzyme on the market that offers three benefits in one product: pilling prevention and de-pilling properties; compatibility with protease enzymes; and, as new evidence shows, a proven ability to maintain the whiteness of clothes.

New Generation of Stable Proteases for Liquid Laundry products

Traditionally enzymes were reserved for premium concentrated laundry liquid detergents, often due to lack of enzyme activity after storage in water-rich detergents. With the introduction of significantly more stable proteases of new generation, the inclusion of a protease to all tiers of the liquid detergent market is now possible. For the detergent producers, this enables formulation flexibility as well as cost savings by reducing the need for extra added stabilizers.
