2005 ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC SEMINAR 347 measured over a 1-3 months (or 1-2 yrs) timeframe? Any attribute that is critical to make this product perform according to the profile may be tested. Quite often, stability tests are confined to viscosity, pH, odor, appearance, but could add sprayability, texture or spreadability, suspended air or particles, dispersion particle size. microscopic analysis, particle size of spray droplets, and a host of other key attributes designed into the product for performance or conswner utility. Performance Attributes (on hair) Now that the product is made and characterized while in the container, it needs to be tested for performance as it leaves the container and is used on hair. Sprays have some particular requirements, like pressure (at 2 I0C) particle size analysis upon spraying (Malvern), grams per second (g/s) or grams per pump -delivery rate of being sprayed (how much product leaves the can and may hit the hair), propellant tolerance, cone diameter (what pattern the sprayed product covers), wetness, beading on the hair, and forcefulness of the spray as well as corrosion in the can or clogging upon spraying and drying. All these attributes affect the way the product is delivered as well as functions on the hair. Gels and sprays alike can be evaluated for clarity upon dry-down, stickiness and stiffness during drying and after drying at low and high relative humidity (%RH), shine, and smoothness of the film. Mousses have similar requirements plus the foam appearance, texture, spreading. foam density (g/mL) and stability in glass bottles as well as finaJ cans with various linings. Very important to consumers is the affect on human hair. Hair Characteristics (HC), High Humidity Curl Retention (HHCR), bending studies at low and high %RH, tack and dry time, smoothness (Diastron Combing). tangles, and shine are all tests that relate to consumer and style demands. Actual curling, flattening, blow drying, brushing. and combing treatments are tested on controlled human hair swatches, mannequins, take home tests, and salon ½ head and whole head tests in order to compare and measure multiple consumer required characteristics: shine. stiffness, durability/flexibility (OHSA), curl snap, flaking on the hair and comb, curl memory/manageability, static, feel going on, drying and dried, then after 8 hrs, 24hrs, etc. Can it be reactivated, reapplied. and removed without damaging the hair? TI1ese are just a sampling of typicaJ methods and tests that can be employed to determine if the prototypes meet the objectives of the profile, pass stability, have completed scale up, or confirm differences from the competition or benchmark. Your projects will have its own selection of key attributes that you will want to measure. Visual Examples: j .. /1 Jti :!

348 JOURNAL OF COSMETIC SCIENCE PROTECTING THE SKIN AGAINST OZONE James V. Gruber1, Ph.D., Abdullatif Tay1, Ph.D. and Robert Holtz2 1 Arch Personal Care Products, L.P., 70 Tyler Place, South Plainfield, NJ 07080 2 Bioinnovation Laboratories, Inc., 321 N Central Expressway, Suite 256, McKinney, TX Introduction Ozone (03) can be considered to be a transitory mixture of oxygen (02) and singlet OX)'gen c1 O:) and is an e,-1remely powerful, non-radical oxidizing agent.1 It has been well documented that ozone will readily kill microorganisms and it is frequently used as a sterilizing agent for this purpose. Unfortunately, ozone is also the most significant contaminate in urban air pollution and when local governments speak of pollution alerts, they arc typically talking about unhealthy levels of ozone. 2 Typical levels of ozone that a1 recorded in urban enYironments can range between 0.2 and 1.2 ppm with the higher leYels being considcre a respiratory threat to people with impaired breathing. 2 Ozone ravages the human respiratory system and also is now identified as a important source of oxidath·e stress and reactive oxygen species in the skin_ 3 · 5 In particular, ozone has been identified as a source of depletion of cutaneous vitamins3 and lipids4·5. In addition, it is well established that ozone can damage proteins and nucleic acids although such studies on skin have been sparse. 6 More recently. it was suggested that atmospheric ozone may adversely effect the immune response in frogs, in particular the ability of pulmonary macrophages to function correctly, and that this effect may partly account for the decline in these specics. 7 It has also been suggested that certain cells in the human body may actually produce ozone as a mechanism of bacterial control although the results of this initial study haYe been questioned.8"9 Interestingly, to date. it appears that there has only been a single in vivo study conducted on human skin exposed to ozone10. It is well known that growing yeast, in particular Saccharo11�vces cerevesiae or Bakers yeast, responds to threats in a Ycry similar fasl1ion as human skin cells, creating prolccli,·e agents that can hold powerful oxidizing forces at bay.11 Because of this, bioactive yeast ferment extracts have been sold in therapeutic, cosmetic and skin care products for years. 12 It has been shown that yeast will respond to oxidative stress and examination of the effects of ozone on yeast haYe been reportcd. 13 This paper will examine the in vitro effect of ozone on some key cutaneous targets not previously examined including DNA damage, and cholesterol and melanin degradation and will demonstrate the ability that a yeast Iysatc made from ozone-stressed yeast can offer a protective barrier against topical ozone assault. Methods Ozone-Stressed Yeast Extract- The stressed yeast extract used in this study was made by growing Saccharomyces cere\'esiae under standard conditions and supplementing a controlled amount of ozone into the oxygen feed during the acli\'e gro\\1h stage. The lysate was isolated by fracturing the yeast and purifying the contents to rcmoye water-insoluble residues. In Vito Tis! ue Models- A customized chamber was designed that allowed the gro\\1b of MatTck® tissue models including Epiderm®, and Melanoderm® under a controlled atmosphere of ozone co-mixed with the oxygen proYided to the tissue. Test materials were applied directly to the surface of the tissue. Analysis of 8-oxoguanine DNA damage was conducted using a competitive ELISA-based analysis. Analysis of tissue cholesterol was conducted using Thin Layer Chromatography and laser densitometer to quantitatiYely determine content. Melanin analysis was conducted using standard UV spectrophotometric analysis using melanin standards. Results Graph I shows the DNA damage test results from exposure of Epiderm full thickness tissue lo 10 ppm of ozone for I hour. Graph 2 shows the results of cholesterol analysis after exposure to IO ppm of ozone for 2 hours. Graph 3 shows the results of melanin concentrations as a result of 10 ppm ozone exposure for 1 hour.
