Desribed in this patent is the use of gingerone or derivatives thereof for reducing or delaying the signs of skin aging. Gingerone (INCI: Zingerone), is a phenolic compound from the vanilloid family. Ginger (Zingiber officinale), mango, cranberry or raspberry may be natural sources of gingerone; however, ginger, in particular ginger oleoresin, is the main source. This molecule is to a large extent responsible for the hot flavor of ginger and has been cited among the ingredients for topical anti-aging care for its blood circulation "accelerator" activity; as a hyperemizing agen; or as an antioxidant. Here, the inventors describe gingerone and some of its derivatives as a pro-differentiator for keratinocytes, and to treat or delay the appearance of the signs of skin aging.
