In a series of evaluations comparing two skin moisturizers, hydroxyethyl urea was found to deliver moisturization efficacy comparable to glycerin, while offering some advantages in terms of sensory perception in skin care products.

Using a ternary phase diagram, the authors developed systems based on nonionic surfactants, light paraffin oil, water, and (optionally) urea. Systems in which lamellar liquid crystals formed and in which urea was an ingredient showed higher occlusive power and lower TEWL in in vitro tests.

Pigment wetting, skin moisturization and gloss are three functions that can be obtained simultaneously from octyldodecyl/PPG-3 myristyl ether dimer dilinoleate, a new polymeric ester synthesized partly from one of the skin’s essential fatty acids.

Studies reported here show that by forming a gel layer that coats the surfaces of damaged hair fibers, this new, cationic, biomimetic copolymer helps to restore the appearance of healthy hair.

Whenever we are asked to formulate an emulsion, we think of and usually add a humectant. A humectant being defined as “a substance that promotes retention of moisture.” It is derived from Latin “hu-mecta-ns, hu-mecta-nt, present participle of hu-mecta-re, to moisten, from hu-mectus, moist, from hu-me-re, to be moist.” But these versatile materials deserve our respect. They have functions that go far beyond this simplistic definition!

Moisturizing creams are used to increase skin hydration. Recent finding indicate that they also effect skin barrier function in both normal and dry skin. Not only humectants, but excipients such as lipids and emulsifiers will influence skin biochemistry a

Stable conditioning shampoos containing high molecular weight dimethicones can be achieved by several techniques, such as choosing the proper surfactant and decreasing the particle size of dimethicone.
