Researchers Connect FADD Protein to Skin Inflammation

Researchers from the University of Cologne, Ghent University and the German Sport University Cologne have identified the protein that may stop necroptosis in keratinocytes, thereby preventing skin inflammation.

Researchers Disprove Resistance With Antibacterial Soap Use

A collaboration of researchers have reported that use of antibacterial soaps does not lead to antibiotic or antibacterial resistance.

Comparatively Speaking: Keratinocyte vs. Corneocyte

Here, industry expert Tony O'Lenick asks Kelly Dobos to explain the difference between keratinocytes and corneocytes. Many skin care products target either keratinocytes or corneocytes; therefore, understanding their differences and the basic structure of human skin is important for formulators.

Study Discovers Mechanism Behind Caffeine's Inhibition of UV-induced Cancer

Researchers at Rutgers have suggested that topical caffeine may help lower the risk of UV-induced skin cancer.

Researchers Find Cavity-causing Bacteria in Infants

Researchers at the University of Illinois have confirmed the presence of bacteria associated with early childhood caries (ECC) in infant saliva. The research, which was published in PLoS One in the article “Comparative analysis of salivary bacterial microbiome diversity in edentulous infants and their mothers or primary care givers using pyrosequencing” proposes the need for infant oral care.

Determining the Keratoltic Activities of Benzoyl Peroxide, Retinoic Acid and Salicylic Acid In vivo

Keratolysis is the separation or loosening of the stratum corneum (SC), and is part of the natural cycle of skin renewal and regeneration. Disordered keratolysis, resulting in skin overgrowth or excessive desquamation, is responsible for various skin disorders.

Researchers Identify Hair Pigmentation Pathway

Researchers at New York University's Langone Medical Center have identified the communication pathway between hair follicles and melanocyte stem cells that regenerates pigmented hair.

Glycation and Skin Aging: A Review

The present article, adapted from Draelos and Pugliese*, provides a review of the chemistry involved in the glycation process to assist formulators in developing topical or nutricosmetic solutions for mature skin care.
