[podcast] CAS9 and CRISPR Technology: Implications for Cosmetics?

"CRISPR, in my mind, is like a molecular GPS. . .People just type in some short array sequence, essentially an address, to find the target. Upon binding to the target, a pair of molecular scissors cuts the DNA and performs a repair to modify the DNA sequence."

Patent Pick: Delivering on mRNA's Promise

News about CRISPR and the Cas9 enzyme has permeated nearly every scientific—and even some consumer—communities. But there is one crucial area where these entities have not penetrated to any real appreciable level: the human body. A new patent may fix that.

Jump-starting Anti-aging, Healing and More

With the flip of a switch—er, chip, rather—skin cells can be reprogrammed as any cell type to restore function to aging or damaged tissue and organs. Research from Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Ohio State College of Engineering explains.

Advanced Photodynamic Therapy Kills 'Blood Suckers'

By "blood suckers," Vanderbilt scientists mean bacteria like staph, which deplete the human blood of iron. Here, a new molecule is described that, when combined with phototherapy, can selectively kill off these and other bacteria—suggesting new anti-acne and other treatment potential.

The New Bionic Reality: Imprinted Wearables

New dimensions in 3D printing are now possible thanks to a novel process developed at the University of Minnesota. Not only could this give surgical robots the sense of touch, it could embed the human skin with biometric monitoring capabilities.

Is Digital Phenotyping the Future of Product Customization?

The company explains, “Integrating diagnostic capabilities with stylish, user-friendly devices enables brands to make personalized product recommendations at scale.”

Secrets of the Trees for Super Cosmetics?

Trees are not the mute, woody giants we think them to be. They are actually quite chatty. What do talking trees have to do with cosmetics? I started to draw parallels between them our industry’s work on the microbiome, epigenetics and wellness cosmetics; even sustainability.

Hitting a Moving Target: Skin

These authors were on a mission: to determine how accurate models that simulate real skin movement really are. While forensics or biomedicine especially benefit from these technologies, so too could cosmetic efficacy testing and claims substantiation.

Study Proves: Our Age Clocks are Not Synchronized

There's a general consensus that both, gender and race impact aging. Now there's epigenetic evidence to back that consensus, as a new study reveals.

Touchscreen Skin: The Next Wearable?

Are we closer to an e-Skin reality? The market may be ready. But is the technology?

Wearables: A Beautiful Future

New technology opens the door to self-diagnosis of skin issues.
