      Uniform and size controllable silicone oil emulsions can efficiently be prepared by novel strategy of membrane emulsification which led to excellent stability and application performance in hair care products in comparison with those prepared by conventional methods leading to inefficient stability and poor application effects.

      The two model ciliated protozoa used in this study: (A) Blepharisma japonicum and (B) Paramecium caudatum. The genus Blepharisma is named after the long, ciliated feeding structure illustrated here that resembles an eyelash (Gk. blepharidos), whereas Paramecium, based on its shape, was originally, and still is, affectionately described as the ‘slipper ciliate’. Both are large, easily recognizable, slow-moving ciliates that lend themselves to bioassay work where cells are directly counted by microscopy. The pink pigmentation of B. japonicum allows it to be easily seen under the microscope and even as ‘pink specks’ when view with the naked eye. Scale bar = 100 μm.

    2. An innovative nano-sorbent for selective solid-phase extraction and spectrophotometric determination of p-amino benzoic acid in cosmetic products (pages 140–147)

      A novel nano-sorbent based on nickel–zinc–aluminium layered double hydroxide (Ni-Zn-Al LDH) was developed for selective extraction of p-amino benzoic acid from cosmetic samples. Extraction procedure is based on the adsorption of p-amino benzoate ions on the Ni-Zn-Al-nitrate LDH and/or their exchanging with LDH interlayer nitrate ions. After elution of the extracted analyte by NaCl solution, its concentration was determined by spectrophotometry.

      Clinical results showed that the stratum corneum of the cosmetic dry skin was considerably thicker than that of the normal skin; however, the barrier quality of the dry skin was intrinsically lower. The difference in barrier properties between cosmetic dry and normal skin was evident in the plot of 1/TEWL vs. cumulative protein removal by tape-stripping.
