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.

Oligosaccharides contained in this active from Sederma act on keratinocytes and induce chain reactions down to dermal fibroblasts, which allow the synthesis of elements essential to cutaneous homeostasis.

A purified fraction of colostrum from P.L. Thomas has been designed to assist fibroblasts in performing metabolic activities to promote healthy collagen fibers in skin following abrasion treatments.

Researchers at the University of California at San Diego have provided a molecular basis to understand the "hygiene hypothesis," the theory that the lack of childhood exposure to infectious agents and microorganisms decreases their susceptibility to disease, which suggests therapeutic approaches to inflammatory skin diseases.

The skin innately possesses metabolic pathways and receptors to protect against external assaults. Here, one protective component, 7-dehydrocholesterol or provitamin D, naturally present in the skin, is described, which serves as the precursor for active metabolites that influence the formation and maintenance of barrier function, the activation of antimicrobial peptides, photoprotective activities, and protection against senescence.

Dormant Leucojum aestivum bulb extract is shown by the author to provide antiaging benefits including: slowing the proliferation of melanocytes and keratinocytes potentially to reduce age spots and slow cellular aging; reducing wrinkle formation by inhibiting muscle cell contractions; and increasing SOD expression in the skin to boost its natural defenses.

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.

Shiseido researchers have discovered a protein involved in blocking the skin barrier function and has developed an effective amino acid derivative for inhibiting the production of this protein.

This grapefruit extract stimulates the formation of phase II enzymes, which strongly support the outward transfer and later destruction of toxins and chemicals from skin cells.
