Vanillyl Butyl Ether to Topically Induce Blood Cell Flux, Warming Sensation

It has been hypothesized that vanillyl butyl ether (VBE) has the same warming and vasodilation mechanisms as capsicum. Thus, VBE was formulated at various levels into cream formulations and applied topically to the forearms of 21 individuals. Following application, changes in blood cell flux (BCF) were investigated using a laser speckle contrast imager.

Comparatively Speaking: Higher vs. Lower Levels of Surfactant Silicone

Alkyl silicone compounds can be effective in oil-based systems, as they are soluble (i.e. clear when added) and lower surface tension when added to oils. They first lower surface tension by increasing their concentration at the interface, then they form micelles.
