The Use of Wound Care Active Oxidized Keratin in Hair and Scalp Health Formulations
Paul Sapsford – Keraplast
12:40PM – 1:00PM
Oxidized Keratin is known to speed the healing of both acute and chronic wounds by up to 35%. Part of the mechanism of action involves stimulating specific junctional collagens important to the structure of skin. When applied to hair Oxidized Keratin again shows the ability to “heal” using a different more natural method than conventional bond-builders with better results. And a recent ex vivo clinical study demonstrates how Oxidized Keratin can stimulate collagen expression in the follicle preventing hair fall and improving follicle health.
Time to Re-do the Make-Up of Cosmetic Safety Regulations?
Joan McGuffey – Senior Regulatory Specialist – UL
1:00PM – 1:25PM
Presentation will lead in with a very brief history of FDA oversight of cosmetics; an example of state level activity which exemplifies the need for national action and then a review of the history of proposed legislative changes. Current versus potential requirements of the most recent of these proposed legislative changes will be detailed to provide the audience an understanding of impact upon members of the supply chain and various roles within cosmetic companies. If you are a formulator, manufacturer or packager; domestic or international, the potential changes on the horizon will be considered.
Alpha Glucosyl Hesperidin in Personal Care: Glucosyl Bioflavonoid Increases Circulation effect leading to applications for Brightening, Pore Reduction and Hair Loss/Regrowth
Manette L Epright – Technical Development Manager – Fitz Chem – NAGASE Group & Ami Kawahata – Scientist – NAGASE Group
1:30PM – 1:55PM
Hesperidin is a bioflavonoid found in various citrus fruits, that’s extremely insoluble in water. In AGH, glucose & hesperidin are bound together using enzymatic technology that greatly improves water solubility. Scientifically shown to improve circulation and microcirculation of the skin, for brightening & under eye, it also showed good efficacy in the reduction of conspicuous skin pores – and significantly increased Hair Mass Index.
