Cold stress can affect the integrity of the skin. In relation, compounds synthesized by plants under environmental stress have been characterized for their protective effects; although limited data relates to cold stress. This article explores an extract from Daphne odora cell cultures to address cold stress-related damage including dryness, cutaneous micro-lesions and inflammation.
