Epigenetic approach for skin rejuvenation

Epigenetic approach for skin rejuvenation

The epidermis is one of the most active tissues in terms of regeneration. This renewal capacity experiences a decrease with time, leading to the appearance of ageing signs, such as wrinkles and dullness. The new peptide presented below showed a potential capacity to improve the epidermal regeneration process, with a suggested reprogramming effect of epidermal cells through the modulation of epigenetic mechanisms. When applied on the skin of volunteers, it helped accelerate the renewal time. Read More

BASF develops new anti-ageing ingredient for skin care

DUESSELDORF, GERMANY: BASF said that it has created a third research platform on extraction and processes, following innovation platforms on epigenetics and microbiome. In addition, experts from BASF’s R&D department for bio-actives in cooperation with experts from the University of Reims and their Technology Transfer Office SATT Nord have developed a new anti-aging active ingredient. They have uncovered the benefits of flax seed oligosaccharides for the skin – that is, their unique capacity. Read More

Wacker presents silane-terminated polymers for sealants, adhesives

MUNICH/NUREMBERG, GERMANY: Wacker Chemie AG is unveiling several novelties for sealant and adhesive applications: The two new silane-terminated polymers GENIOSIL XM 20 and GENIOSIL XM 25 can be used as binders in adhesives and sealants, where they can modify the mechanical properties, in particular, impacting modulus. This allows adhesives and sealants manufacturers to compound without the need of conventional plasticisers. In plasticizer-free adhesives, the new grades. Read More
