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.

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.

Degradation of dermal and epidermal proteins and the reduced proliferation of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the dermis occur during aging. Thus, antiaging technologies must to correct these deficiencies to induce skin regeneration and combat the signs of aging. Data presented here demonstrates that ECM-derived tetrapeptides have the potential to counterbalance ECM degeneration.

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.
