ISP Forms Skin Test Alliance
International Specialty Products has formed an alliance with Cellworks Group to use the latter’s computer-enabled, proteomics-based method for discovering and developing biofunctional personal care ingredients. Cellworks’ system has traditionally been used to study therapies for skin and inflammatory diseases. The two firms say they have already demonstrated Cellworks’ “virtual skin platform” on ingredients that modify skin pigmentation. In the future, they expect to evaluate antiaging compounds and the synergies between different cosmetic ingredients.
