Method for quantification of oils and sebum levels on skin using the Sebumeter®
ConclusionsThe Sebumeter® is a precise analytical instrument capable of quantitative measurement of deposition of oily materials onto skin from topical products (down to the μg cm‐2 level), as well as its traditional use of measuring sebum levels. However the outputted values do not directly correlate with the mass of oil present and generation of a calibration curve is necessary for any ingredient of interest in order to produce quantitative data for claim support and formulation development.This article is protected by copyright.

Water‐resistant sunscreens for skin protection: an in vivo approach to the two sources of sunscreen failure to maintain UV protection on consumer skin
ConclusionsThe results confirm 2 stress origins in sunscreen exposure to water: interfacial surface tension and bulk water diffusion. Polymers bring improvements to the resistance of sunscreens to bulk water but show wide latitude in performances when subject to the water surface tension stress. Globally, a higher loss of filters is observed in the UV‐A than in the UV‐B, which is attributed to more UV‐A filter loss or degradation and thus resulting in a decreased protection in the UV‐A.

Update on ultraviolet A and B radiation generated by the sun and artificial lamps and their effects on skin
Synopsis Solar radiation, especially ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB), can cause damage to the human body, and exposure to the radiation may vary according to the geographical location, time of year and other factors. The effects of UVA and UVB radiation on organisms range from erythema formation, through tanning and reduced synthesis of macromolecules such as collagen and elastin, to carcinogenic DNA mutations. Some studies suggest that, in addition to the radiation emitted by the sun, artificial sources of radiation, such as commercial lamps, can also generate small amounts of UVA and UVB radiation.
