Water homeostasis in the epidermis is essential for the normal function of the skin and for normal stratum corneum (SC) hydration. The discovery of the existence of the water-transporting protein aquaglyceroporin-3 (AQP3) in the viable epidermis and the presence of tight junction structures at the junction between the stratum granulosum and SC have brought new insights into the mechanisms of skin hydration, water distribution and barrier function.

To alleviate skin dryness, humectants and occlusive substances are traditionally used, mostly in combination. A third, relatively recent approach is biomimetic, i.e., active ingredients with lamellar structure containing skin-identical lipids. The aim of this study was to determine whether a biomimetic cream could deliver superior moisturization to human volunteers, compared with a conventional moisturizer containing petrolatum and mineral oil.

Skin aging, in particular when induced by chronic UV exposure, leads to degenerative changes in the skin. Ultraviolet light also increases metalloproteinase activity. This leads to a breakdown of collagen at a higher rate than with just regular aging. If not taken care of, these fine lines become visible to others.

How can hydration be considered a trend, when it never went away? It is not so much about the act of hydrating so much as it is “what” and “how” hydration is being delivered. From gel-crème textures to next-generation hyaluronic acid and electrolytes, hydration has taken front and center.

A new cationic homopolymer-based technology was designed to provide long-lasting conditioning to damaged hair without product buildup. Its mechanism, in situ controlled flocculation, is described here, and its capability to restore hydrophobicity to damaged hair is shown. Techniques are detailed for measuring silicone deposition, conditioning performance, hydrophobicity and buildup on hair.

The instrumental and sensorial studies described here assess the ability of a test moisturizing product, at 1% in a surfactant system, to physically improve skin moisturization and structural condition, as well as provide a consumer-perceivable sensorial benefit. Changes in skin protein content, visible skin dryness, trans-epidermal water loss, corneometry and sensorial characteristics were measured and analyzed.
