Rather than anti-aging claims, these authors sought to quantify well-being as it relates to the effects of a new active: centcyamine. The authors confirmed a correlation between well-being scores, instrumental observations, self-assessment and, indirectly, in vitro mechanistic data.

Studies have shown that exposure to airborne, traffic-related particulate matter (PM) is associated with increased signs of extrinsic skin aging.1-3 Using model particles as surrogates, these researchers developed an in vitro model to evaluate premature aging induced via the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) pathway. They found a new AhR antagonist could inhibit the up-regulation of genes indicative for premature aging.
