The interaction of cosmetic ingredients incorporated into several emulsions with the skin

Investigator

Title of the project The interaction of cosmetic ingredients incorporated into several emulsions with the skin
Primary and secondary scientific disciplines chemical science
Description of the project Characteristics and main objectives of the research project:

  • Preparation of emulsions containing selected colorants, antioxidants, active agents extracted from natural sources. Study of the skin properties after topical application of the cosmetic formulation.
  • Modifications of natural polymers to obtain new ingredients for cosmetic application and to improve the adhesion of the cosmetic formulation to the skin surface.
  • Study of the chemical structure of new compounds using FTIR-spectrophotometer, NMR spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectrometer, XRD. Study of skin properties using instruments: colorimeter, sebumeter, corneometer, tewameter. Study of rheological properties of the cosmetic emulsions with natural polymers. Study of coloring properties of cosmetic ingredients and stability of cosmetic formulation in different conditions.
  • Development of new color cosmetics, personal care cosmetics based on selected natural ingredients.

The project is conducted in cooperation with: Université Le Havre Normandie, France
