Hair care scientists scratched their heads for some time before they could put their finger on the primary causes of dandruff. Now, with the flakes brushed away, they are seeing the scalp in a new light. Two Procter & Gamble scientists, James Schwartz, Ph.D., and Rolanda Wilkerson, Ph.D., both with the Head & Shoulders brand, explain how in this exclusive interview.

What is sunscreen’s role in treating hyperpigmentation? We ran clinical trials using depigmenting agents and sunscreen to assess sunscreen’s treatment purpose. We then surveyed study design, objective, intervention, how investigators utilize sunscreen and measurements of efficacy to further the findings.

Facial morphology is associated with subcutaneous adipose tissue (sFAT), dermal elasticity and the dermal layer structure. Thus, a fibroblast/adipocyte co-culture was developed to examine the interactions between these entities. Once their mechanisms were identified, a tiencha, or sweet tea, extract was tested for its effects on adipocytes and potential to improve facial morphology.

The present article reviews the roles of microRNA in skin senescence, then explores how an extract of Plantago lanceolata, obtained through plant cell culture technology, regulates the genetic expression of specific microRNAs. Signs of senescence relating to dermal quality, density and thickness, and the appearance of age spots were assessed.
