The first five stories about the science and formulation of cosmetics

1 – Kao and istyle will collaborate on the RNA skin database by 2023

Kao, a Japanese personal care major, is partnering with beauty media and retail company istyle to build a skin RNA database by 2023 with the sebum RNA testing technology it has developed.

This joint project would allow Kao to tap into istyle’s @cosme-owned cosmetics portal, a user base of 15 million users and 17 million reviews on over 360,000 products.

The ribonucleic acid (RNA) collection is expected to begin this spring and both companies aim to collect a database of up to 10,000 samples from @cosme members to begin with.

This would give Kao the opportunity to delve deeper into the study of skin RNA, such as identifying characteristics that would allow him to better understand and classify skin types of RNA.

2 – How the rise of ‘coral safe’ sun creams could hamper future formulations

Confusion and misinformation about the marine safety of sunscreens can ultimately hamper the ability of cosmetic formulators to develop safe and effective UV protection.

We have seen bans on sunscreen ingredients come into effect in locations like Hawaii, Palau, and Thailand, and more bans on sunscreen ingredients could disadvantage sunscreen formulations and their ability to protect skin from sun damage. UV rays.

“If you remove the oxybenzone from the formulation, your primary primary UVA protector is gone. If you go that route, you would have a problem with totally unstable sunscreens that we don’t want, or not be able to use probably the cheapest UVA absorber,” best and most used that we have “,Said Dr John Staton, Scientific Director of SciPharm.

3 – Study identifies pigmentation-related genes in Korean women

A team of researchers has discovered genes involved in pigmentation in the skin of more than 17,000 Korean women, with insights that open up new opportunities for personalized products.
