In this article, several methods to quantify the protein collected by tape stripping are described, including traditional gravimetric methods as well as novel colorimetric and visible spectroscopic techniques. Further, one colorimetric method is described to effectively determine the keratolytic efficacy of various materials in vivo, suggesting additional roles for this method.

In a new method described here by the authors, fluorescence emitted from samples and captured by image analysis is used to quantify the number of lipids present in the cornified cell envelope. This in vivo approach is fast and noninvasive and could be used to screen molecules for potential moisturizing and restructuring effects.

In 2001, Japanese researchers reported that after the age of 40, some individuals develop a malodor known as “aging odor,” attributed to the presence of unsaturated C9, 2-nonenal. George Preti, PhD, a member of Monell Chemical Senses Center and an adjunct professor of dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, was interested by this report and began to conduct research of his own.

Naturally occurring and synthetic avenanthramides were evaluated for their efficacy to inhibit substance P-induced release of histamine from mast cells. In vivo tests showed that four synthetic avenanthramides demonstrated ability to significantly reduce histamine-induced itch and redness. Dihydroavenanthramide D was also shown to be an excellent antioxidant.

To monitor or anticipate what can happen in the creation of a cosmetic product when components are combined and as time passes is no trivial task especially when compounded with the psychophysical needs for the product to fit a specific concept and to spread, feel, pour and appear elegant.
