Special Issue Information
The importance of natural ingredients endowed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to be used in cosmetics is progressively increasing. Indeed, these compounds can counteract the damages induced by free radicals and reactive oxygen species on skin cells, involved, e.g., in wrinkling, photo-aging, elastosis, drying, and hyperpigmentation of the skin.
This Special Issue is dedicated to natural compounds with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant actions and their potential for application in skincare formulations and cosmetics. Original research articles dealing with the elucidation of mechanisms of action, therapeutic effectiveness, and safety aspects in the application of such biologically active natural compounds are encouraged. Manuscripts describing the development of novel formulations allowing for a higher stability and bioavailability of bioactive compounds are also welcome. Attention will also be devoted to green and sustainable approaches for the recovery of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds from natural sources to be used in cosmetic products, as well as to bioprocessing and green chemistry solutions to improve their bioactivity. In the case of plant-derived extracts, structural characterization and identification of the main bioactive components will be required. Review articles describing the current state of the art are also welcome.
