Lys–Thr–Thr–Lys–Ser (KTTKS) minimally crosses the skin because of hydrophilicity; therefore, its palmitoyl derivative, palmitoyl-KTTKS (Pal-KTTKS), is used in cosmetic products. In spite of this, there is insufficient information on its physicochemical properties and the effects of palmitoylation on such properties. The aim of this study was to investigate these properties.
This is a very special year for the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) as the organization celebrates its Diamond Jubilee. Founded in 1945, the SCC is the oldest and largest membership organization focused exclusively on cosmetic science education.
Coffee roasting industries generate a by- product called coffee silverskin that is usually disposed of as waste. The valorization of this abundant waste is necessary because of the antioxidant compounds in coffee silverskin. In this study, coffee silverskin was extracted in different extraction conditions to obtain an extract with high antioxidant activity and to use it as an additive for antioxidant skin gel.
