Cancer researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, have identified a mechanism involved in the lengthening of telomeres; cosmetic researchers often look to this field for novel answers to skin aging.
Patent Picks—Nude-toned UV Absorption; On-demand Protection; Tight Junction Function; and After-sun Repair
Mar 27, 2014
Patent Picks are compiled by the editors from publicly available sources and cover recent patents issued, or applied for, in the cosmetic and personal care industries and relevant peripheral markets. This edition features the latest inventions related to sun protection and after-sun repair.

Sun exposure leads to the production of free radicals in skin and to damage to elastin and collagen, resulting in premature aging. Studies of consuming carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables have shown lower incidences of skin pathology. Carotenoids are among the most efficient natural scavengers of free radicals and may be used as oral sun protection, as is discussed here.

The skin harbors populations of non-pathogenic, commensal microorganisms, which have important functions in skin health and disease. Elucidating these relationships will provide a foundation for approaches to strengthen and enhance the skin barrier in health and disease.
Patent Picks—Transformed Bacteria; Anti-biofilm; Modulating Bacteria Response and More in Probiotics
Mar 5, 2014
Patent Picks are taken from publicly available sources and cover recent patents issued, or applied for, in the cosmetics, personal care and relevant peripheral markets. This edition features inventions related to probiotics and skin health.

New technologies have been designed to carry drugs and natural molecules in a targeted manner across the skin into the dermis, and Joseph Gabriele, PhD, of McMaster University and Delivra Inc., has been at the forefront of this research. He will present his work at the Cosmetics & Toiletries Summit.

Recent studies demonstrate that the skin microbiome of infants actively changes during the first year of life, along with evolutions in skin structure, biochemical composition and function. These dynamics in the development of a healthy skin microbiome must be taken into consideration when designing products for baby skin care.

There appear to be no published studies on facial aging in Russian women, despite clear interest from the industry in this market. In order to formulate products, it is necessary to understand the end consumer. This article therefore explores a recent study of 203 Russian women and describes their aging specificities versus other, more studied Caucasian populations.

To protect enamel, new mechanisms in classic oral care continue to be uncovered, while modern advances mimic and enhance natural protective systems. New approaches to enamel repair include augmenting natural remineralization by creating reservoirs of ions and applying saliva biomimetics. Such technologies, described here, represent significant advances for repairing and protecting teeth noninvasively.
