One of the more important functions of the skin is to act as a protection barrier between our body and the external environment. For this, the lipid matrix plays a key role by preventing the loss of internal water and electrolytes, and avoiding the penetration of antigenic compounds into skin layers.
The dysfunction of the lipid matrix, together with the effects of environmental aggressions like sun exposure, pollution, smoke, etc. are the main cause of skin aging acceleration.

In this lecture, we are going to focus in how the combination of 2 innovative active ingredients help to have a healthy skin by, 1) reinforcing the lipid matrix and re-building the lipid composition; and 2) hydrating the skin. A well-hydrated skin, together with a healthy lipid matrix, will help us to slow aging and to have a good skin.

DS -Cerix 5®: is an innovative ingredient that mimics the lipid composition of the skin. This optimized lipid ratio rebuilds the lipid matrix and improves the skin barrier function. As a result, the loss of internal water is reduced, and the skin elasticity and firmness increase.

Hymagic 4D®: is a combination of 4 different types of hyaluronic acid in a single product. Each Hyaluronic Acid inside Hymagic-4D have different properties, so Hymagic-4D can build up a three dimensional HA network to accurately target the different layers of the skin (from the deepest to the surface), replenishing the water from outside and holding the water from inside.

Any formulation including both products (DS-CERIX5 and Hymaigc-4D) will have all the benefits explained above.

The relevance of odour analysis in cosmetic products

Date: , Track:

Scents are of extreme importance in companies branding strategy for creating strong emotional bounds with customers. The characterization of sensorial properties is therefore crucial in product development and testing. The present communication provides an overview on the implementation of multifactorial chemical/sensory approaches for the odour characterization of cosmetic and body care products. A number of studies on the evaluation and performance of specific products based on olfactometric descriptive techniques and on the identification of volatile organic compounds via GC-MS are also discussed, as practical examples on the powerfulness of the integration of sensory assessment and chemical analysis.
