The New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists strives to increase and disseminate scientific information through meetings and publications.
In-cosmetics Global is the leading event for personal care ingredients. The exhibition brings together personal care ingredients suppliers (exhibitors) with finished product manufacturers (visitors), each looking to network, learn about future trends, and discover new products.
Entekno Materials are delighted to be launching their innovative MicNo ZnO technology at in-cosmetics Global. MicNo is a breakthrough technology due to its unique structure that provides formulators a single ingredient for broad spectrum protection from harmful UVA & UVB sun rays in addition to Blue Light protection.
There are two main types of skin cancer, melanoma & non-melanoma skin cancer. Non-melanoma skin cancers are the most common type of skin cancer. However, as they are not required to be reported to cancer registries the actual incidence & mortality statistics available are best estimates & not always up to date.
In the ever-changing landscape of sun protection products, consumers are struggling to keep up & understand the cosmetic industry’s current sun protection message. The high mortality rate from UV ray associated melanomas, one person dies of melanoma every hour & 86% of melanomas are caused by UV rays from the sun, means that it is widely accepted by consumers that protection of the skin from the sun is a necessity.
The world’s coral reefs are under threat. It is estimated that by 2050, 90% of reefs will die due to rising temperatures, with climate change the biggest threat to coral reefs. Overfishing, pollution & nutrient enrichment from agricultural runoff & sewage are also considered significant threats to coral reef health.
Biocompatibility of designed MicNo-ZnO particles: Cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and phototoxicity in human skin keratinocyte cells.
Recently, designed platelet shaped micron particles that are composed of nano primary particles, called MicNo (=Micron+naNo) particles, have been developed to exploit the benefits of nano size, while removing the adverse effects of nanoparticles. It has been shown that MicNo-ZnO particles exhibit both micron and nanosized particle characteristics.
