Featured in this issue of Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine, C. Lenaers et al. explore how the sun can directly or indirectly induce DNA lesions in case of overexposure via the formation of UV-induced photoproducts. They then test the effects of a cotton extract on accelerating the elimination of DNA damage.
Damage from the sun has also more recently been linked, in the minds of consumers, to speeding up skin aging. Thus, the industry continues to search for ways to rebuild the mechanisms of the skin damaged by UV radiation. One way to do this is through improved means of delivering beneficial materials to the skin. N. Dayan et al. describe, a delivery approach to carry compounds to skin sub-tissues in the stratum corneum or in the live epidermis and dermis. This issue of C&T magazine rises above sun care and digs deeper than delivery in skin—turn to page 5 to find more!
