Hypersensitive Skin: Classification and Potential Risk from Cosmetic Formulations

Considering the potential for reactions between cosmetics and hypersensitive skin, the present article will focus on this skin type; first by outlining mechanisms of type I and IV hypersensitization, then by focusing on type I immunogenic vs. non-immunogenic urticaria. Potential urticariogens in cosmetics are considered, and suggestions for future direction are given.

Literature Review: Color Perception, Pigmentation and Optics

This survey of recent literature relates to color, optics and pigmentary mechanisms. The papers are presented as food for thought in the early stages of the product development process. Proposed applications are purely hypothetical but may warrant deeper investigation.

Growth, Senescence, Canities, Bleaching and Anti-aging in Hair

The continued use of hair bleaches and dyes to combat the onset of gray hair creates a greater demand for hair products that deliver the desired effect while facilitating repair. Molecular biology promises new strategies in combating the aging process of hair cells, with the paradigm shift toward understanding the living component of the hair follicle.

Lipsticks: How They Have Changed and Where They Are Going

The composition of lipstick formulations and means of manufacturing and filling them have progressed significantly in the last 100 years. This article reviews the most notable developments in methods of production, innovations in both functional and active ingredients, and breakthroughs in processing. In addition, it explores what the future could hold for lipsticks.

How does the My Library tool work?

The Cosmetics & Toiletries website has a tool called My Library that you can use to save and organize articles for future reference. View this tutorial slideshow to learn how the My Library tool works.

A Dermatological View--Moisturizer Efficacy: Evidence on Preventing and Treating Irritant Dermatitis

As an update to a previous overview by Zhai and Maibach, publications from 1992 to 2006 were reviewed quantitatively to examine moisturizer effectiveness. Pub Med, Science Citation Index and Embase were searched for: moisturizer, irritant dermatitis, prevention and treatment. Results indicated the extension of the work summarized justifies priority.

Frontiers of Science Supports Cosmetic Research

On Dec. 12, 2013, at the Society of Cosmetic Chemists' (SCC) Annual Scientific Meeting & Technology Showcase, Rachel Grabenhofer, presented the Frontiers of Science Award to Joseph Schwarcz, PhD, from McGill University, on behalf of Cosmetics & Toiletries.
