Resveratrol: Beauty From the Inside

About 25 years ago, the notion of “French paradox” was included in popular and scientific literature. That is how experts described the extremely low incidence of cardiovascular diseases among residents of southern France as compared with other countries. This issue has been studied since 1978 by a research group led by Professor Serge Renaud. Thirteen years of research with the participation of more than 36,000 Frenchmen made it possible to establish a link between the “French paradox” and regular consumption of dry red wine by the population. This fact initiated an active study of its chemical composition, and in 1992 Serge Renaud and other scientists explained this effect of the drink with the content of a powerful antioxidant in it, resveratrol.

The Importance of Phosphates in Household Cleaners
Staffel T., Fleischhauer М., ICL Phosphates Solution, Germany

In the EU, phosphates have been practically prohibited in household cleaners since January 1, 2017. Detergent and cleaning product manufacturers have changed their formulas. Cleaners with phosphates that contained 8–10 components now have to incorporate up to 15 different raw materials. This article discusses the use of phosphate-containing and phosphate-reduced household cleaners. First the different types of phosphates, their most important properties, and their versatile functions are set out. An internal study is used to demonstrate that the cleaning performance of phosphate-containing products is superior to that of phosphate-reduced products. The controversial discussion is addressed using environmentally relevant data and presented in a factual way. Graphics are used to illustrate the sources of most phosphate emissions and how these can be used in the future.


Myths and truth about collagen
Sapozhnikova A.I., Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor, Laona Lab LLC

Modern cosmetic, medicine and biotechnological industries can hardly exist without collagen. This fibrillar protein is most famous both among professionals and consumers. Unfortunately, this “popularity” is often false, as it is based not on science and facts but on unfair advertising and aggressive marketing that has a very limited connection either to science or to common sense. I would like to dispell myths regarding collagen and reconstruct the truth.

Merkulov D.A, Specialist of Technical and Advisory Suppor, Revada LLC

Household and I&I cleaning products often contain strong acids, alkalis and oxidizing agents for increasing of cleaning properties and detergency capability. The development of formulations for strong acidic, strong alkaline and oxidizing products is complicated greatly by the compatibility of ingredients with each other. For this reason it is possible to use only small groups of effective and chemically stable substances. Surfactants in household chemicals are important and the most numerous in terms of raw materials range. Using of surfactants in the formulations with extreme properties will be discussed in this article. The following publications will highlight the features of extreme formulations creating with other equally important technical ingredients such as chelating agents, thickeners etc.

We are to talk about the features of the market of professional means in the aesthetic medicine.
