Here, the authors describe mechanisms of stem cells and their potential for antiaging benefits. Cultures established from apple and grape varieties using a specialized culture technology revealed that aside from stimulating colony forming efficiency (CFE) and organogenic potential, the extracts improved the maintenance of epidermal stem cells. In addition, the grape extract provided UV protection.

As the mechanisms of skin aging become better understood, their complexity commands a different approach for antiaging benefits—i.e., integrating multiple complementary actives into a single formulation. In the present article, the authors describe a comprehensive formula designed to effectively address sixteen different mechanisms of skin aging.

In the present article, the oral administration of echium oil is shown to increase collagen levels in the skin as well as barrier functioning and skin conductance. When applied topically, the oil increases dermal structural proteins, which results in a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and inhibits UV-induced inflammation.

New research regarding the relationship between diet and skin and hair health has led to nutritional supplements developed for dermocosmetic and/or dermatological applications. However, obvious uncertainties exist in regard to the cosmetic capabilities of such preparations. This review provides an overview of existing data to examine the potential for nutritionals to treat skin and hair aging.

Dormant Leucojum aestivum bulb extract is shown by the author to provide antiaging benefits including: slowing the proliferation of melanocytes and keratinocytes potentially to reduce age spots and slow cellular aging; reducing wrinkle formation by inhibiting muscle cell contractions; and increasing SOD expression in the skin to boost its natural defenses.

Degradation of dermal and epidermal proteins and the reduced proliferation of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the dermis occur during aging. Thus, antiaging technologies must to correct these deficiencies to induce skin regeneration and combat the signs of aging. Data presented here demonstrates that ECM-derived tetrapeptides have the potential to counterbalance ECM degeneration.

In this dual approach to antiaging, intrinsic factors are first addressed by slowing cell proliferation in skin via a technology based on dormins—in this case, extracts from dormant Narcissus tazetta bulb. Then, to protect against extrinsic aging, colorless carotenoids are employed to absorb UV radiation and prevent oxidative stress damage.

The use of steroids to treat atopic dermatitis (AD) often causes side effects; thus, the authors present a blend of plant-derived materials designed as an alternative treatment or an adjuvant therapeutic agent. Through in vitro and in vivo evaluations, the blend is shown to provide effective anti-inflammatory and AD-mitigating effects.

Fragrances are blends of synthetic chemicals, essential oils and solvent extracts, known as absolutes. Recent research has evaluated the effects of these natural aromatic products, revealing they can impact processes in skin. Here, the author describes how a fragrance with specially selected naturals can provide a pleasant scent as well as impart cosmetic activity.
