NEW SKIN MODELS

The ban on animal testing for cosmetics ingredients introduced in Europe earlier this year has highlighted a lack of alternative testing methods.

Our Research Centre is working with the newest skin models to test our newly developed ingredients.

Composed of keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts within a collagen gel, the epidermis is fully differentiated, expressing a range of differentiation markers and containing lipid lamellar in its cornified layer.  Effects of agents on a variety of differentiation, proliferation, apoptotic, anti-ageing/oxidation and UV protection markers can be performed.
