New tools and an advancing knowledge of skin biochemistry allows suppliers to study in much more detail how ingredients actually have their positive effect, according to skin care consultant Mindy Goldstein.

CosmeticsDesign.com USA met with Goldstein at the recent HBA show in New York to discuss the advances being made in skin biochemistry and how this is focusing attention on the mechanism of action of ingredients, and ultimately leading to more efficient products.

As a supplier it is no longer acceptable to present an ingredient that appears to have a positive effect without knowing exactly why, how the ingredient is working and the metabolic pathways it is affecting, she explained.
