Topical Resveratrol, Topical/Ingested Grape Seed and Natural Supplements Found to Inhibit Skin Cancer
Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, report that the combination of topical resveratrol, topical or dietary grape seed extract, and calcium D-glucarate and ellagic acid supplements suppress skin cancer and inflammation. These findings could be used to develop supplements or creams to protect skin.

In 1876, Charles Darwin observed the secretion of yellow matter from the rootlets of ivy. Little was known about the material until 2008, when Mingjun Zhang, PhD, an associate professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Tennessee, and his research team found nanoparticles in the yellow matter.

Silicon microspheres are described as UV, visible and infrared (IR) radiation filters. Parameters of these spheres including shape, smoothness, refractive index and size are examined for their potential benefits in cosmetic formulations. Finally, the ability of the spheres to block IR radiation is evaluated for thermo-regulatory effects.

The production of a range of titanium dioxide-based dispersions is explored to provide enhanced UVA protection, in comparison with ultrafine titanium dioxide. Formulations containing these dispersions as the only active are shown to achieve a UVA protection factor that is 1/3 of the labeled SPF value, thus meeting European Commission recommendations.
