Multiple factors affect the integrity of cell mitochondria, leading to loss of cell function, aging and apoptosis. In skin, this is expressed in the form of wrinkles, loss of tone, etc. To combat these effects, the author describes a technology that contains mitochondria-nourishing compounds to deliver antiaging benefits.

Instead of just a single layer skin model of a single cell type, the researchers have access to a patent-protected skin model that consists of two layers with different cell types. The researchers liken this model to a perfect copy of human skin and are in the process of developing the first fully-automated process chain for manufacturing two-layer skin models.

In this paper, the authors focus on the dialogue between skin epithelial cells and immune cells in the context of an inflammatory situation, i.e., psoriasis. The aim is to design in vitro models relevant to in vivo skin inflammation that can then be used to screen and evaluate potential cosmetic products.

The Internet is a rich source of information; however, with such breadth of ever-changing content, it can be challenging to search and find relevant information quickly. Thus, Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine has compiled this Online Research Directory to make researching online easier. This directory, while not exhaustive, puts a significant number of resources related to cosmetics R&D at your fingertips, including associations, organizations, government agencies, regulatory bodies, certification groups and universities. This list will continually evolve as new sources emerge.
