Case Study 2

Cosmeceuticals

Our client is involved in development of cosmetics using natural ingredients. Alcyomics was engaged to help generate human safety data and determine immune responses of a novel product (X) prior to first use in man.

Product X had been developed for topical application, therefore the effect of repeat dosage of product X was investigated in the presence of immune cells. Alcyomics demonstrated that product X had the potential to cause an immune response and therefore not safe in its present formulation for human application. For this client we also provided a T cell proliferation assay which correlated with the SkimuneĀ®Cosm results further demonstrating the usefulness of the assay.
