V.А. Averianova, Ph.D (biology)
Moisturizers are a key component of basic skin care treatment especially when there is an alteration of the epidermal barrier and reduced water content in the epidermis. They are used to restore the barrier function of the epidermis, to cover tiny fissures in the skin to provide a soothing protective film and increase the water-content of the epidermis. To achieve their beneficial effects they include emollients, occlusive agents, and humectants, and there is an overwhelming number of formulations available on the market today.

Big Ban in perfumery: Goodbye, lilly of the valley?
There are new rules of use for certain aromatic ingredients applied from the beginning of 2017 in the European Commission: a number of allergens that producers must indicate when labeling has grown from 26 to 89; there is also a full prohibition of atranol, chloroatranol and Hydroxyisohexyl-3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde (HICC) more known as lyral. There is one more lily of the valley odorant that fell into disfavour by the European Commission – butylphenyl methylpropional (BMHCA), or lilial. In September 2015, SCCS (Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety) published a report which stipulated that after three years all compositions with lilial must be reformulated. Over the last few years nearly everyone in the perfume industry was occupied with identifying a substitution for lyral and lilial. What is not surprising is lyral and lilial present about 20% of all fragrant materials and that’s why any changes or bans in this field are taken so seriously. As we can see, there was a lot of work undertaken in recent years – lyral and lilial don’t appear in practically any modern fragrances; instead, a large number of new unique materials have been created.
