Mary Kay unveils breakthrough researches on skin health

Mary Kay recently presented findings related to the effects of pollution and antioxidants and vitamin C on health and appearance of the skin on the occasion of two scientific conferences, the Reunión Anual de Dermatólogos Latinoamericanos (RADLA), which was held on May 4–7 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the 77th Annual Meeting of the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) in Chicago, USA, May 8–11.

As part of the symposium, Mary Kay presented findings on an antioxidant complex that can possibly help delay the premature signs of aging related to the damaging effects of diesel exhaust particles (DEP). The technology, found in the Mary Kay TimeWise Miracle Set 3D skin care line, provides a powerful free-radical fighting regimen with an exclusive, patent-pending, three-dimensional approach to skin aging.

In order to develop next-generation skin care products and fight against the premature signs of aging induced by pollution we must continue to advance cutting-edge skin science,” said Dr. Lucy Gildea, Chief Scientific Officer at Mary Kay Inc.Mary Kay scientists spent years researching the latest ingredient innovations to develop our newest skin care collection that defends against free radicals and helps delay the onset of premature skin aging from unavoidable environmental and lifestyle stressors such as car exhaust and air pollution. We are honoured to present our findings during the ‘Pollution and Skin Health’ symposium at RADLA.

At the SID, Mary Kay Associate Principal Scientist Tiffany Carle presented new data collected while analysing the effects of a serum containing five botanical fruit extracts known to be rich in vitamin C on skin appearance. As part of this study, Mary Kayresearchers treated artificial skin tissue with this serum and utilized a genomic approach to understand how the serum affected the skin. This genomic evaluation revealed involvement of four main classes of genes important for skin firmness. Furthermore, the study showcased that the serum treatment increased production of dermal matrix proteins collagen and laminin that support skin firmness. This study confirms how the serum works to help improve the appearance of skin laxity and texture.
