Cleansing lotion containing tamarind fruit pulp extract. III. Study of lightening efficacy and skin irritation on Asian skin type

  title={Cleansing lotion containing tamarind fruit pulp extract. III. Study of lightening efficacy and skin irritation on Asian skin type},
  author={Ratree Maenthaisong and Nathorn Chaiyakunapruk and Prateep Warnnissorn and Jarupa Viyoch},
Cleansing lotion containing 8% w/w tamarind pulp extract was prepared and tested for its clinical effects on skin properties. The study was performed using 38 healthy Thai female volunteers, and consisted of a home-use, double- blind, randomized side of face and placebo controlled trial. The test product (emulsion with the extract) and the placebo product (emulsion without the extract) were applied and gently massaged on each side of facial skin for 2 minutes twice daily for 8 weeks and the…

Characterization, Antioxidant and Antibacterial Potentials of Tamarindus indica L. Fruit Pulp Extract Loaded O/W Nanoemulsions

The main purposes of the current study were to formulate o/w nanoemulsions as a carrier for Tamarindus indica (tamarind) fruit pulp extract and to study the antioxidant and antibacterial potentials

The safety and efficacy of bacterial nanocellulose wound dressing incorporating sericin and polyhexamethylene biguanide: in vitro, in vivo and clinical studies

The novel bacterial nanocellulose incorporating PHMB and sericin was a safe and efficient wound dressing material for further investigation in the wound healing efficacy in clinic.

Clustering of Five Sweet Tamarind Based on Fruit Characteristic

Pod weight was significantly correlated with pod diameter, however pod length and pod diameter were not significantly correlated, and the similarity level from five sweet tamarind cultivars was 44-100 %.

Randomized Clinical Trial of the Innovative Bilayered Wound Dressing Made of Silk and Gelatin: Safety and Efficacy Tests Using a Split-Thickness Skin Graft Model

The wound sites treated with the bilayered wound dressing showed significantly less pain and more rapid skin functional barrier recovery than those treated with Bactigras, and these results confirmed the clinical safety and efficacy of the bilayan wound dressing for the treatment of split-thickness skin graft donor sites.



Formulation and development of a patch containing tamarind fruit extract by using the blended chitosan-starch as a rate-controlling matrix.

A cosmetic patch containing tamarind fruit extract was formulated and developed by blending two types of natural polymers: chitosan with molecular weight of 100 000 and starch such as corn, potato or tapioca starch to provide patches with favourable physical characteristics, high water sorption, good bioadhesion ability and good stability.

Study of cumulative irritant contact dermatitis in man utilizing open application on subclinically irritated skin

Impaired skin barrier function, elicited by subclinical irritation from short‐duration contact with some irritants, might augment the cumulative irritant contact dermatitis caused by repeated open exposure to other surfactants.

Topical 8% glycolic acid and 8% L-lactic acid creams for the treatment of photodamaged skin. A double-blind vehicle-controlled clinical trial.

Topical 8% glycolic acid and 8% L-lactic acid creams are modestly useful in ameliorating some of the signs of chronic cutaneous photodamage and are well tolerated and available without prescription.

Development of hydrogel patch for controlled release of alpha‐hydroxy acid contained in tamarind fruit pulp extract

The amounts of tartaric acid released from the developed hydrogel patches were proportional to a square root of time (Higuchi's model), particularly the release from C4.0R1.0G0.03 formulation which provided the flexible and elastic patches with good bio‐adhesive property.

A clinical, prospective, randomized, double‐blind trial comparing skin whitening complex with hydroquinone vs. placebo in the treatment of melasma

In a double‐blind, randomized, prospective study, the clinical improvement of hyperpigmentation in 30 patients with melasma using hydroquinone or skin whitening complex topically on one side of the face vs. a placebo cream is compared.

Guidelines for measurement skin colour and erythema A report from the Standardization Group of the European Society of Contact Dermatitis *

This report reviews individual‐related variables (age, sex, race, anatomical site), intra‐ and interindividual variation (temporal, physical and mental activity, orthostatic effect, menstrual cycle/menopause), environment-related variables and various instrument‐ related variables that influence skin colour.

Seasonal variations in skin temperature, skin pH, evaporative water loss and skin surface lipid values on human skin.

The seasonal variations of skin temperature, skin pH, evaporative water loss (EWL) and skin surface lipid values were determined in the forearm skin of 24 healthy Japanese adults at four different periods over one year and significant correlations were observed between skin temperature and EWL, total lipid and squalene values.
