Structure-function relationship between a natural cosmetic active ingredient and the olfactory receptor OR2AT4

 Tuesday 26 March 2019

Although the olfactory receptor OR2AT4 has been described as involved in epidermal renewal, there is no data up to date about a cosmetic active ingredient able to activate this receptor. This research work thus revealed a natural molecule capable of binding to this OR2AT4 receptor in order to stimulate keratinocyte migration.

Naturally mobilize the senses into the skin

 Tuesday 05 March 2019

Stimulated by beauty rituals, the senses can also be awakened into the skin through recently observed biological activity. The discovery of sensory receptors in the epidermis, in particular olfactory and taste receptors, opens up new prospects for the regeneration of skin tissue in aging conditions.

Based on strong scientific expertise (in vitro modeling study, metabolomic study, in silico molecular modeling), SILAB developed a cosmetic natural active ingredient imbued with sensoriality targeting epidermal regeneration. It is derived from a co-product of coconut, a tropical fruit with a unique sensory profile.

Lipid organization in xerosis: the key of the problem?

 Thursday 24 January 2019

Although xerosis is a common skin disorder among the population, there is no in vivo global study focusing on xerotic skin. Hence, the objective of this study was to characterize xerotic skin from the surface to the molecular scale with in vivo and noninvasive approaches.

Nectarobiota®, a source of bio-inspiration

 Friday 21 December 2018

The microbiota has a key role in the biology of organisms. Just as skin, plants host many microbial communities. SILAB has applied its know-how in mastering nature and biotechnologies to study the very particular nectar of flowers: the Nectarobiota®. This innovative research work has supported the development of a natural active ingredient, bio-inspired by the regulating capacity of the Nectarobiota®, able to specifically rebalance the microbiota of mature skin disturbed during the aging process.
