Fluorescence Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy to Assess the Penetration of Low Molecular Protein Hydrolyzates Into Hair
By: Olga Freis and Dominique Gauché, Laboratoires …
The present study uses confocal laser scanning fluorescence microscopy to assess the penetration of protein hydrolyzates into hair. While higher amounts of protein were found in the cuticle, still significant quantities were observed in the cortical parts of hair, and this penetration was enhanced by longer incubation times.

Four test method evaluation reports are now available from ICCVAM that provide recommendations for performing eye safety testing more humanely, and for developing and using non-animal test methods and strategies. Among these reports, ICVAAM has recommended that a cytosensor microphysiometer (CM) test method may be used to screen surfactant-containing formulations such as personal care products for the ability to cause permanent or severe eye injuries.
