Artemia Extract: Toward More Extensive Sun

An extract from the plankton Artemia salina protects DNA from UV damage and decreases UV-induced inflammatory cytokines, suggesting a way to help sunscreens protect skin from UV damage.An extract from the plankton Artemia salina protects DNA from UV damage and decreases UV-induced inflammatory cytokines, suggesting a way to help sunscreens protect skin from UV damage.

Antiaging Benefits of French Rose Petal Extract

Botanicals are re-emerging as key ingredients in the defense against premature skin aging. French rose petal extract, when used in a cosmetic formulation, can help decrease the damage of ultraviolet (UV) light and other environmental stresses that can cause premature aging of the skin.

Using Zinc Oxide in Sunscreen Products

While zinc oxide had been used for decades in sunscreen products — remember the white coating on lifeguards’ noses? — it was only approved for this use by the FDA approximately 10 years ago. Prior to that, it was actually considered to be (and still is) an approved skin protectant material.

A Photoprotection Polymer for Hair Care

UV protection hair care products in the current marketplace are mainly monomeric and adopted from skin care, therefore lacking substantivity and water solubility. This article reviews the detrimental effects of each range of UV light to hair and presents experimental results showing the sun protection performance of polyamide-2 for both hair morphology and artificial hair color fading.

Designing Broad-Spectrum UV Absorbers

Design considerations for broad-spectrum UV filters include photostability, solubility, efficacy, safety, registration, patent freedom, and PPD performance. These criteria are described and then applied in the case of bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyltriazine (BEMT), a new broadspectrum sunscreen active.

Protecting Against UV-induced Degradation and Enhancing Shine

The data presented shows polysilicone-15 demonstrates the ability to perform as a UV fi lter for hair protection and decreases the combing force necessary after irradiation to sample hair tresses in addition to enhancing the shine attribute of a formulated product.

What’s New in Skin Protection: A Periodical Review

The author reviews recent publications discussing the protection of human skin against photodamage, reactive oxygen species, and other skin health topics.

BEMT: An Efficient Broad-Spectrum UV Filter

Efficient broad-spectrum UV protection is provided bisethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine (BEMT), an oil-soluble, photostable UV absorber that offers improved UVA protection and synergy with UVB filters.

Pigments as Photoprotectants

This article gives an overview of two pigments (ZnO and TiO2), their use in photoprotection and their mechanism of action and ability to attenuate UV radiation. Finally, the organic pigments, the dominant members of a new family of photoprotectors are described.

Hydrogenated Polydecences and High-SPF Physical Sunscreens

New methods of micronization and coating of physical filters combined with vehicles containing high amounts of hydrogenated polydecenes provide high-SPF sunscreens that show improvements in photostability, effect-to-dose ratio, and skin substantively.

Photostability of Sun Filters Complexed in Phospholipids or Beta-Cyclodextrin

Laboratory tests of three commonly used sun filters show that the filters encapsulated in beta-cyclodextrin show a photostability significantly higher than that of the same filters uncomplexed or complexed with phospholipids.
