SciBase partners with Skinobs on skin barrier research

SciBase, a Swedish developer of augmented intelligence-based solutions for skin disorders, has formed a partnership with France’s Skinobs, which offers a cosmetic testing research platform.

The partnership will see SciBase offer its Nevisense system for assessing skin barrier functions within cosmetic testing on the Skinobs platform.

Through the Skinobs platform, researchers can find information on who is conducting what tests in the field of dermocosmetics, nutraceutical and active ingredient testing.

SciBase said the collaboration will streamline the process for researchers looking to access the latest tools for their cosmetic and medical research.

“SciBase is already involved in discussions with several large cosmetic companies who wish to use Nevisense in their research and development. In May this year, SciBase will present and exhibit at its first cosmetic research-focused international conference, the Cosmetotest cosmetics testing symposium in Lyon, France,” said CEO Pia Renaudin (pictured).

“We are excited to be partnering with Skinobs to bring our innovative skin barrier function assessment technique to researchers globally,” she added.

“Nevisense is commonly utilized in medical research for assessing skin barrier health, hydration, healing, and inflammation, and we believe this partnership will extend our reach to cosmetic researchers in need of our products."

Skinobs provides cosmetic researchers around the world with access to preclinical and clinical testing methods and laboratories for evaluating active ingredients and cosmetic products on the skin, hair or nails.

Their platform covers a wide range of tests including stability, ecotoxicity, biodegradability, microbiology, safety, container/content interactions, sun protection, tolerance, efficacy, sensory analysis and consumer tests.

Features

Quorum sensing inhibition to restrain bacteria

Bacteria use a cell-to-cell communication system called quorum sensing (QS) to share information about cell density and adjust gene expression accordingly. This article explains BASF studies into how natural plant extracts are able to quench QS signals from P. aeruginosa and S. aureus. Then, it checked if their effect on QS was followed by a decrease in virulence, determined by both bacteria motility and lipase secretion

Microscopic revelations in sunscreen formulation

Sunscreen formulations are complex and multi-component systems that are based on either organic UV filters, inorganic UV filters, or both. As formulators navigate the complexities of sunscreen development, Croda provides detailed insights into how microscopy can enhance the understanding of formulation microstructure, offering valuable information beyond what is visible to the naked eye

Boosting SPF with colloidal lignin particles

Lignin is a widely available biopolymer with UV protection and antioxidant properties, but traditional bulk lignins are unsuitable for cosmetics. Lignovations has developed a patented and green technology to produce colloidal lignin particles (CLP). In this article, CLP is demonstrated to be an effective SPF booster in organic and mineral sunscreen products

Facial lifting: mimicking microcurrent efficacy

Lubrizol Life Science has developed a novel peptide that is designed to emulate the skin benefits offered by microcurrent devices, specifically targeting upper facial lifting effects. In vitro, it has been demonstrated to activate the same biological functions as microcurrent stimulation: improving dermal contraction and muscle tone
