Patent Pick: Compact Powders Ready for Impact

Cosmetic powders are pressing contradiction: one benefit can be optimized but at the expense of another. That's where LVMH inventors come in, with a new formula to survive its own impact on the marketplace.

'Separation Anxiety' in Basic Skin Research: Dermal-epidermal Separation Methods, Part I: Chemical

The epidermal-dermal junction (EDJ) attaches the epidermis to the dermis and separates the skin's primary three layers: the dermis, epidermis and hypodermis. The EDJ is composed of four components, and it is important to preserve their structure and function as much as possible when separating the dermis from the epidermis.
