Natural Cosmetics an Upward Trend

Natural cosmetics have gained significant consumer appeal over the last decade or so.as a result raw material suppliers have introduced ingredients obtained from a replenish able source such as marine and vegetable extracts. The latter i.e. replenish able is the operative word of differentiation for natural as compared to generics which are of synthetic origin. There has been many discussions regarding natural at the molecular and atomic levels among scientists and argument is that at the atomic level everything is composed of atoms ad molecules and therefore natural. The replenish able source description is likely the best fit using extracts and vegetable oils as a description. The latter being non-limiting as in its broadest sense natural means both replenish able and without chemical modification. The term naturally derived is also used to describe a natural base such as Vitamin c (ascorbic acid) which has been phosphated for color and hydrolytic stability.

Nanocontaminants in Food

Nanoscience has its roots in quantum physics(qp) and it is all about size and self assembly.However while change qp deals with subatomic particles and waves nano relates to the atomic and molecular level.expect the unexpected at the nano-level as atomic behavior and properties as normally encountered is dramaticaly changed at this level.in particular properties such as color change due to refraction of light.Gold is a good example as the myriad of colourful paintings of gs on cathedral windows are composed of nanogold.There are two types of nanofabrication called top down which is mainly our concern in foods and bottom up which deals with self assembly of nanoparticles into wires and nanorods with hundreds of times the strength of steel a stairway to the stars has been proposed as has space elevators. A nanoparticle is 1to 100 billionth of a meter and are not visible to the naked eye unless agglomerated such as in the above nanogold paintings.they can be observed using a laboratory microscope.

Cosmetic Injections Versus Topical Creams

The most popular cosmetic injection treatments include Hyaluronic acid,collagen and Botox. Hyaluronic acid absorbs about 1000 times its weight of water and as a result is good for plumping of lips. Collagen is a good filler and provides elasticity to collagen deprived skin, a condition which increases with age.Botox is used for facial wrinkles and in particular expression wrinkles. Injections have both pro and con attributes. The positive side is immediate results the negatives consist of expense and discomfort although microneedles have mitigated the latter.
