When hair is exposed to the sun there may occur protein degradation, which alters its physical appearance. Thus, beneficial hair adjuvants with addition of natural sunscreens are sought for cosmetics development. In this study, we developed hair conditioning products containing blueberry, raspberry, cranberry and resveratrol in different proportions, incorporated into TrichoCond®. In vitro photoprotection capacities of the products and cystine content of the hair samples after treatments were d...

The problems and difficulties of diagnosing OLP based on histopathological features were showing inter- and intra-observer variability. In terms of pathological diagnosis on OLP, microvascular appearance was not highly valued. Comparative histomorphometric analysis of intraepithelial papillary capillary loops (IPCLs) of OLP was performed to investigate the potential for use as diagnostic criteria....
