Parrot feathers, stem cells, melanin, cellulite and epidermal tight junctions were among the many biology-themed papers presented during the 25th IFSCC Congress, held Oct. 6–9, 2008, in Barcelona. This heavy focus on biology is indicative of the evolving actives arena and likely a direct response to the antiaging consumer trend.

Sensitive skin is a subjective, lay term that many consumers claim affects their comfort when using products that contact their skin. Approximately one-half of individuals surveyed in two research studies considered themselves to have sensitive skin. Researchers know this condition exists, yet it is notoriously difficult to quantify in a meaningful and uniform way.

Aquaporins are proteins that reside in the cellular membrane. In response to osmotic forces, they control the passage of specific materials into and out of the cell. As reported previously, one type of aquaporin in human skin is aquaporin-3 (AQP3). Four personal care companies have studied the world of biochemicals to discover AQP3 stimulators from three different sources: vitamins, steroids and sugar alcohols, which are described here.
