The world of cosmeceuticals is ever-growing as more and more products come to market on a regular basis. While there is no shortage of products derived from key cosmeceutical categories, such as naturally-sourced antioxidants, some of the more unique ingredients are being developed thanks to research accomplishments in other dermatological areas such as wound healing.
This course will introduce you to one of the most prevalent groups of emerging cosmeceuticals, those of peptides, growth factors and stem cell-derived products. Specifically, we will review some of the key subtypes of peptides, including carrier and signal-based, enzyme-modulating, and neurotransmitter-inhibiting; common constituent of growth factor and cytokine-based cosmeceuticals; and the latest innovations in the stem cell derived product realm. For each we will also review the established role and benefit in managing the photoaging and hyperpigmentation processes; highlight samples of research studies; and explore the theoretical, and often debated, risks cited in the literature. Given that many cosmetic companies are now featuring items in their product line containing these popular ingredients, delving into this arena will help expand the knowledge base for all Aesthetically-focused Naturopathic Doctors.
