Evaluation of Caffeine Gels on Physicochemical Characteristics and In Vivo Efficacy in Reducing Puffy Eyes

  title={Evaluation of Caffeine Gels on Physicochemical Characteristics and In Vivo Efficacy in Reducing Puffy Eyes},
  author={Thanaporn Amnuaikit and Duangkhae Maneenuan and Prapaporn Boonme},
The eyelids are the thinnest skin in the body, leading to be easy for the blood vessels to show through the skin caused a swollen and dark appearance called puffy eyes. Placing refrigerated damp tea bags on the eyelids has been believed for a long time that it can reduce the puffy eyes due to the vasoconstriction of caffeine. This study aimed to characterize physicochemical properties and to determine in vivo efficacy in reducing puffy eyes of the prepared caffeine gels. The formulation…

Caffeine’s Mechanisms of Action and Its Cosmetic Use

Caffeine is being increasingly used in cosmetics due to its high biological activity and ability to penetrate the skin barrier and also stimulates the growth of hair through inhibition of the 5-α-reductase activity.

Effects of a cellulose mask synthesized by a bacterium on facial skin characteristics and user satisfaction

The cellulose mask increased moisture levels in the skin significantly more than moist towels (P < 0.05) after a single application and user satisfaction with the product was evaluated.

Effective Home Remedies that Provide Quick Relief for Puffy Eyes

Women find cold compression, cucumber, and getting enough sleep most effective in dealing with eye puffiness, while vitamin E, K, caffeine treatments and witch hazel were less popular.

Simultaneous Determination of Caffeine, Preservatives and Antioxidants in Energy- and Soft-Drinks Commercially Available in Bangladesh

This study describes a validated assay method to determine caffeine, benzoic acid, methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, butylatedhydroxyanisole, and butylatedhydroxytoluene simultaneously by

Effect of Drug Loading Method and Drug Physicochemical Properties on the Material and Drug Release Properties of Poly (Ethylene Oxide) Hydrogels for Transdermal Delivery

The drug release mechanism for the majority of medicated PEO hydrogel formulations was determined as both drug diffusion and polymer chain relaxation, which is highly desirable for controlled release formulations.

Redirecting drug repositioning to discover innovative cosmeceuticals

“target repositioning” is proposed, a new term, to highlight that druggable protein targets implicated in multiple diseases can be exploited to accelerate the discovery of molecularly targeted cosmeceuticals that can promote skin health as an added benefit, which is a novel concept not described before.

Comparison of Cutaneous Bioavailability of Cosmetic Preparations Containing Caffeine or α-Tocopherol Applied on Human Skin Models or Human Skin ex vivo at Finite Doses

It was demonstrated that the rank order of solute permeability could be correctly predicted when the preparation was applied at a finite dose in human skin models, at least when solutes with far different physicochemical properties such as caffeine and α-tocopherol were used.

A double-blind evaluation of the activity of an anti-cellulite product containing retinol, caffeine, and ruscogenine by a combination of several non-invasive methods.

A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study was conducted with 46 healthy female volunteers in order to test an anti-cellulite product containing retinol, caffeine and ruscogenine and showed its superiority versus the placebo in skin macrorelief and an increase in cutaneous microcirculation.

Investigation of newborn pig skin as an in vitro animal model for transdermal drug delivery

Investigation of the suitability of newborn pig skin as a model in percutaneous absorption studies of drugs found it to have a similar permeation properties to human skin, and factor difference values suggest that as a human skin substitute, newborn pigskin may be a suitable model for per cutaneous absorption screening studies.

Dependence of corticosteroid penetration on the vehicle.

Strategies for overcoming the stratum corneum

There is a necessity to regulate the intradermal disposition of drugs to develop a more efficient transdermal drug delivery system after overcoming the skin barrier.

Caffeine Topical Gel Formulation

Caffeine was used topically as one of many ingredients in various cosmetic preparations for reducing under-eye puffiness and dark circles. Gels containing 3% w/w caffeine as an active ingredient were
