Adachi et al. discuss a new role of beta-endorphin in skin. Beta-endorphin and its opiate receptor are found in keratinocytes. The function of this morphine-like peptide is reducing pain and controlling stress. It also produces a pleasant feeling.

Cosmetic chemists are constantly being bombarded by “new” raw materials from suppliers. We welcome this “bombardment” as it gives us the opportunity to be more creative in our formulation efforts. I think it is worthwhile to step back and look at how a formulator should evaluate a new material before deciding whether or not to use it. Let’s focus our attention on emulsifiers (one of my favorite topics).

An innovative emulsification technology is demonstrated, which can be applied to surfactant-free emulsions and has the propensity for stimuli-responsive behavior. The technology can be used to allow previously difficult product formulations with shear-sensitive materials and controlled, droplet size distribution.
