Over the past two decades, skin care has advanced at a rate rivaling that of technology. Just as it used be enough for cell phones to simply make phone calls, it used to be enough for skin care products to simply cleanse, tone and moisturize. Those days are long gone. As baby boomers started showing the first signs of aging, they demanded more of their skin care products. They insisted on multi-tasking formulas that could reduce fine lines and wrinkles, firm sagging skin and make dull…

A systematic screening of total antioxidants in dietary plants.

This work assessed systematically total antioxidants in a variety of dietary plants used worldwide, including various fruits, berries, vegetables, cereals, nuts and pulses, to facilitate research into the nutritional role of the combined effect of antioxidants in dietary plants.

Modified Aloe barbadensis polysaccharide with immunoregulatory activity.

Aloe barbadensis polysaccharide was partially digested with cellulase and further purified by dialysis, stepwise ethanol precipitation, and size exclusion chromatography to inhibit UVB irradiation-induced tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) release from human epidermoid carcinoma cells (KB cells).

Anthocyanin-rich grape extract blocks breast cell DNA damage.

Data suggest that CGE and a component grape anthocyanin have breast cancer chemopreventive potential due in part to their capacity to block carcinogen-DNA adduct formation, modulate activities of carcinogens-metabolizing enzymes, and suppress ROS in these noncancerous human breast cells.

Evaluation of antioxidant potential of aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis miller) extracts.

The results showed that three-year-old Aloe vera contained significantly higher levels of polysaccharides and flavonoids than two- and four- year- old Aloe Vera, and no significant differences in flavonoid levels were found.

Both dermal uptake models and a revised PBPK model are developed and combined into a form appropriate for simulating chloroform breath levels in individuals exposed in showers by inhalation and dermal routes and by the inhalation route only.
