Mar Drugs 2019 Jun 21;17(6). Epub 2019 Jun 21.

School of Pharmacy, University of Camerino, 62032 Camerino, Italy.

Huge amounts of chitin and chitosans can be found in the biosphere as important constituents of the exoskeleton of many organisms and as waste by worldwide seafood companies. Presently, politicians, environmentalists, and industrialists encourage the use of these marine polysaccharides as a renewable source developed by alternative eco-friendly processes, especially in the production of regular cosmetics. The aim of this review is to outline the physicochemical and biological properties and the different bioextraction methods of chitin and chitosan sources, focusing on enzymatic deproteinization, bacteria fermentation, and enzymatic deacetylation methods.

The Impact of Cosmetics on the Physical Dimension and Optical Performance of Contemporary Silicone Hydrogel Contact Lenses.

Eye Contact Lens 2020 May;46(3):166-173

Centre for Ocular Lens Research & Education (CORE) (D.L., K.v.D., C.M., S.S., L.J.), School of Optometry & Vision Science, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada; and Currently Alcon Laboratories, Inc (S.S).

Purpose: Contact lens wearers may inadvertently expose their lenses during the lens insertion and removal process or while wearing their lenses to cosmetic products being used. This study investigated the impact of various cosmetics on the physical dimension and optical properties of three recently marketed monthly replacement silicone hydrogel contact lenses.

Methods: In this in vitro study, three monthly replacement silicone hydrogel lens types including senofilcon C (ACUVUE VITA, Johnson & Johnson), samfilcon A (Bausch+Lomb ULTRA, Bausch+Lomb), and lotrafilcon B+EOBO (polyoxyethylene-polyoxybutylene) (AIR OPTIX plus HydraGlyde, ALCON), were individually coated with cosmetic products followed by a 1-hr soak in phosphate-buffered saline.

The method allows trace determination of this parent compound and its main metabolite, namely diphenyl phosphate (DPP), in urine samples of nail polish users. The method is based on a novel microextraction technique termed stir bar sorptive-dispersive microextraction (SBSDME) using a magnetic composite made of CoFeO magnetic nanoparticles embedded into a mixed-mode weak anion exchange polymer (Strata-X-AW), followed by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).

Synthetic phenolic antioxidants and their major metabolites in human fingernail.

Environ Res 2019 02 16;169:308-314. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

State Key Laboratory of Pollution Control and Resource Reuse, School of the Environment, Nanjing University, Nanjing 210023, China; Soil and Water Science Department, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611, USA.

Synthetic phenolic antioxidants (SPAs) have been widely used in foods, polymers, and cosmetics, but very limited information is available about their occurrence in human tissues. In this study, five SPAs, namely 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-methylphenol (BHT), 2-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (BHA), propyl-, octyl-, and dodecyl-gallate (PG, OG, and DG), and four major metabolites of BHT, including 3,5-di-tert-butyl-4 -hydroxybenzaldehyde (BHT-CHO), 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-(hydroxymethyl) phenol (BHT-OH), 3,5-di-tertbutyl-4-hydroxybenzoic acid (BHT-COOH), and 2,6-di-tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone (BHT-Q), were determined in human fingernail samples collected from Nanjing, China. Total concentrations of the nine target analytes (∑SPAs) were 523-14,000 ng/g. Read More

Contact Dermatitis to Cosmetics.

Authors:
Matthew J Zirwas

Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2019 Feb;56(1):119-128

Ohio University, 2359 E Main St., Columbus, OH, 43209, USA.

Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) to cosmetics is extremely common-probably the most common reason patients present for patch testing. The diagnosis should initially be suspected based on the patient history and the distribution of the dermatitis. Once the diagnosis is suspected, empiric recommendations for low allergenicity products should be implemented until patch testing is performed. Read More

"Green" UV-LED gel nail polishes from bio-based materials.

Int J Cosmet Sci 2018 Dec 6;40(6):555-564. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Coatings Research Institute, Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti, MI, USA.

Objective: Gel nail polishes represent an advanced class of nail polishes, with the ability to cure under ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and consequently demonstrate improved properties and greater durability compared to conventional nail polishes. Most gel nail polishes available today are based on petrochemical resources, making them unsustainable. Bio-based materials are excellent renewable resources, with high potential for meeting final-product performance, cost, and environmental needs. Read More

VOC sources and exposures in nail salons: a pilot study in Michigan, USA.

Int Arch Occup Environ Health 2019 Jan 1;92(1):141-153. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

School of Public Health, Boston University, Boston, MA, USA.

Purpose: Exposures of nail salon technicians have received attention due to the potentially toxic materials used in nail products, which include volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde and methyl methacrylate (MMA). This study characterized area and personal concentrations and other indoor air parameters in 17 nail salons in fall and winter seasons in three areas of Michigan.

Methods: VOC samples were analyzed using thermal desorption, gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy, and the VOC composition of 35 nail products (e. Read More

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, 300 Pasteur Drive, Stanford, CA, 94305, USA.

Background: Yellow nail syndrome is a rare condition considered secondary to functional anomalies of lymphatic drainage. Yellow nail syndrome is diagnosed through the triad of intrathoracic findings (30% being pleural effusions), nail discoloration, and lymphedema, with any two features sufficient for diagnosis. We report the second case of post-operative yellow nail syndrome. Read More

Understanding the dynamics of keratin weakening and hydrolysis by proteases.

PLoS One 2018 16;13(8):e0202608. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Science and Engineering Faculty, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Keratin is the structural protein in hair, nails, feathers and horns. Keratin is recalcitrant, highly disulfide bonded and is generally inaccessible to common proteases. Only certain types of proteases, called keratinases, are able to cleave the peptide bonds within the keratin structure. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Dankook University Medical Center, Chungnam, Korea.

Despite daily exposure to chemicals in cosmetic products, there are few studies on the exposure levels to cosmetics particularly in Asians. We sought to investigate the usage pattern of cosmetics, including eye makeup products, fragrances, color makeups, and hair and nail care products, in Koreans. An online survey of 1,800 participants (908 males and 892 females, aged 15-59 years) from 5 Metropolitan cities (Seoul, Incheon, Daejeon, Daegu, and Busan) in Korea was conducted. Read More
