The latest research findings revealed spanning next-gen ingredients, vitamin warnings, and China data

Emerging skin care science: Growing evidence to support formulations containing thyme, ginseng and wheat grass​

New research suggests that herbal formulations containing thyme, wheat grass and ginseng, along with ferulic and gallic acid, are the most promising natural products for new cosmetics with skin anti-ageing properties.

Writing in the journal Molecules​, researchers noted that the development of new dermocosmetics has rapidly increased due to consumer demand for non-invasive products with low adverse effects.

Furthermore, natural compounds of plant origin and herbal-derived formulations have been popularised due to their safety credentials and  actives.

Based on this, researchers this month published a new review to identify the recent advances in herbal-derived product research, including formulations and isolated compounds with emerging skin anti-ageing properties.

Vitamin hit: Increasing use of synthetics in cosmetics linked to rising rates of allergic contact dermatitis​

The increasing use of vitamins in cosmetics and daily consumer products could be responsible for rising rates of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) in the general population, a team of European experts has warned.

Vitamins A, E, B3, B5, B6, and C and their derivatives are used for their antioxidant and anti-ageing properties in cosmetics.

In order to update the role of vitamins as inducers of ACD, by looking at their clinical manifestations and possible cross‐reactivity, the research team recently published a new review.
