Complexity theory is used here to explain the formation and properties of polyelectrolyte complexes, whereby organized structures built through self-association exhibit synergistic properties. These materials can create new compounds and offer new benefits, as shown by the present work in which a complex based on PVM/MA copolymer and polyquaternium-28 is used to treat damaged hair.

As human's age, skin renewal slows, leading to an uneven surface and the formation of scales. This has a negative influence on skin complexion and makes the skin look dull and grey. Instead of using irritating peeling procedures, Mibelle Biochemistry Group proposes an extract of comfrey stems cells, PhytoCellTec Symphytum, to address the root of the trouble.

In the present article, the oral administration of echium oil is shown to increase collagen levels in the skin as well as barrier functioning and skin conductance. When applied topically, the oil increases dermal structural proteins, which results in a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and inhibits UV-induced inflammation.

Of the fatty acids, 18-MEA appears to be lost to the greatest extent; therefore, it is necessary to restore18-MEA to maintain healthy hair. It has been found that Cutissential Behenyl 18-MEA and Cutissential 18-MEA 40 can help replenish the 18-MEA that is depleted from the hair surface.

Meristem cells of Himalayan red rice were cultured and elicited to produce secondary metabolites. Through an in vitro assay, rejuvenation was shown at the epigenetic level of treated cells. An increased expression of dermatopontin in keratinocytes, besides being a novel finding, implies that ReGeniStem™ Red Rice may be able to firm the skin and improve the skin barrier function.
