Cigarette smoke was chosen as a model for pollution, being a relevant environmental contaminant with proven effects on health in general and skin health and appearance, containing many relevant toxic compounds, including volatile organic compounds VOC’spolyaromaitc hydrocarbon PHAsoxides and heavy metals Specific example of pollutants known to be present in cigarette smoke and have deleterious effect on epithelial cells are formaldehyde and polyaromatic hydrocarbons.

The oral compositions typically comprise an abrasive system abrasive or polishing agentsuch as e. Create and organize Collections on the go with your Apple or Android device.

According to certain embodiments, the pollutant is smoke-associated pollutant. According to some embodiments, the cosmetic composition further comprises a cosmetically acceptable or aasteriscus dermatological additive.

In these organs and tissues, the epithelium serves as part of the protective barrier against harmful physical forces, chemicals, pollutants, asterlscus and other undesired agents. Many of the compounds found in cigarette smoke are also found in air-polluted cities and industrial areas. Each possibility represents a separate embodiment of the present invention. Non-limiting examples of suitable fillers include talc, kaolin, mica, serecite, magnesium carbonate, aluminum silicate and organic powders such as nylon.

The composition of claim 1, azteriscus composition is a fraveolens composition formulated for topical administration to the skin. The culture was further incubated with the intoxicated medium for additional 24 h or 48 h. The present invention now shows that polar solvent extracts of A. According to some embodiments, the composition is formulated in a form selected from the group consisting of aqueous solution, cream, lotion, water in oil emulsion, oil in water emulsion, microemulsion, nanoemulsion, gel, serum and milk.


If the problem persists, let us know. The method of claim 1, wherein the polar solvent is water. According to certain embodiments, the oral care composition is in a form selected from the group consisting of toothpaste, dental cream, gel, powder, mouth wash, breath freshener, gingival massage cream, gargling tablet, lozenge and chewing gum.

Asteriscus Graveolens was harvested from two of its known habitats at different time points. The present invention is based in part on the unexpected discovery that a fraction of Asteriscus graveolens extract, soluble in a polar solvent, is useful in protecting against toxic challenges met by the skin and other epithelial-cell comprising tissues that come in contact with exogenous pollutant, for example lung tissue. A set of 16 questions regarding variety of skin parameters was used to evaluate the treatment effect.

Non-limiting examples of excipients in ointments include hydrophobic or hydrophilic base including oil-soluble base, water-soluble base and suspended base prepared by mixing fat, fatty gravdolens, lanoline, Vaseline, glycerin wax, Japan wax, paraffin, paraffin sulphate, resins, higher alcohols, plastics, glycols, water and surfactant.

Agitation is continued until the carbomer is asteriscux dispersed. According to some embodiments, the polar solvent is water. These nucleotides are detected using a horseradish-peroxidase detection system and a non-toxic colorimetric substrate. The experiments showed that extract fraction of Asteriscus graveolens exhibits marked protective effect against cigarette smoke intoxication.

Free radicals reactive oxygen and nitrogen species are harmful to cellular lipids, proteins, and nuclear- or mitochondrial-DNA, inhibiting their normal function.
