Disease relevance of Skin Care


High impact information on Skin Care

  • This protection was greater than that seen with alpha-tocopherol acetate, the most common provitamin E that is used in commercial human skin care products [6].
  • Thus, these findings indicate that the novel vitamin C derivatives presented here, 6-Acyl-AA-2G, may be effective antioxidants in skin care and medicinal use [7].
  • Alpha-Tocopherol acetate, the most common form of vitamin E in commercial skin care products, conferred less protection, perhaps due to its lower absorptivity in the UVB [8].
  • In a prospective randomized study, Thêta-cream was compared with standard skin care using Bepanthol lotion [9].
  • Randomized, paired comparison of No-Sting Barrier Film versus sorbolene cream (10% glycerine) skin care during postmastectomy irradiation [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Skin Care


Biological context of Skin Care

  • In addition, we investigated whether supplementation of skin care products with ceramide 3B enriched with penetration enhancers and coemulsifiers could exert a beneficial effect on barrier function, done by measuring their effects on the TEWL of SLS-induced scaly skin [12].
  • STUDY DESIGN: Nineteen neonates of 26 to 30 weeks gestational age were randomly assigned to receive topical Aquaphor ointment twice daily for 2 weeks or to receive standard skin care [13].

Anatomical context of Skin Care


Associations of Skin Care with chemical compounds


Gene context of Skin Care

  • An analysis of the skin care patient mix attending a primary care-based nurse-led NHS Walk-in Centre [19].
  • Emblica cascading antioxidant: a novel natural skin care ingredient [20].
  • The results presented and discussed in this work may help in understanding the effects of UVA/UVB absorbers and antioxidants upon the level of UV-induced ROS generated under UVA exposure and in natural sunlight which could be relevant for improving the photoprotection and efficacy of skin care cosmetic formulations [21].
  • TRN is a synthetic, non-ionic, broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent, which is incorporated into several products, including hand soaps and detergents and those of skin care and oral hygiene [22].
  • MDS technology is being used currently in cosmetics, over-the-counter (OTC) skin care, sunscreens and prescription products [23].
