"Biocompatible Amino Acids for Beauty Effects"

Speaker is Laure-Anne Gillon, Seppic's actives specialist


Amino acids are the building blocks of life, natural constituents of living tissues. Joined together they form proteins, the second constituent in the skin after water. Proteins ensure the skin’s healthy structure, aspect and metabolism. For this reason, delivering amino acids to the skin through cosmetic products is of major interest for visible results. One of the main issues of using amino acids, hydrophilic molecules, for targeted skin care is accomplishing delivery past the first skin cell layers to reach their target; however if we improve their biocompatibility, it gives us a multitude of possibilities for cosmetics. During this talk, we will focus on a few unique amino acids involved in biological mechanisms that are key targets for the beauty industry (anti aging, melanin synthesis, ...), expand on these mechanisms, and show the skin's effects when biocompatible amino acids are applied on the skin
