Glycoageing – are there any methods to control?
V.А. Averianova, Ph.D (Biology)
Glycation is a non-enzymatic process whereby various sugar molecules react non-specifically with proteins (and other macromolecules). This phenomenon increases with age, in all types of tissue, particularly in people with diabetes, and leads to degradation of enzymatic vital functions, to brittleness in collagen and elastin fibers (thus to wrinkles, decreased elasticity) and to reduced efficacy of cellular mechanisms. Ingredients with antiglycation activity attempt to prevent this sugar-attachment to proteins.

Increasing the Preservative Palette: a Multifunctional Active with Natural Efficacy Against Bacteria, Yeasts and Mould
А. Кrovetto, D. Scholz, Active Micro Technologies
The choice of suitable preservatives for use in cosmetics is rapidly diminishing due to increasing concerns over safety, exposure and sensitisation. Exacerbated by consumer demand for natural personal care, an obvious gap has become evident in the current palette of preservatives causing a distinct need for a natural yet effective, safe and stable antifungal material. Using controlled fermentation of medium chain triglycerides, fractionated from coconut oil, with the probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus gives a sufficient concentration of lipopeptides to provide efficient antifungal activity. This COSMOS certified ingredient is called ‘Lipopeptide Complex’. Supported by challenge test data under varying conditions, as well as in-vivo studies to show an increase in skin moisturisation, density, and cellular viability, this new multifunctional active can help to provide a much needed antifungal boost. By combining this antifungal ‘Lipopeptide Complex’ with a known antimicrobial peptide (Lactobacillus Ferment), a natural system is formed which offers broad spectrum protection against bacteria, yeasts and moulds. Additionally, its moisturizing and conditioning features support a holistic approach to formulation.
