The cosmetic industry has moved far ahead in recent years, and specially grown human skin is now being used to test new cosmetics. But, as you know, the skin of people of different nationalities at the micro level can vary greatly in composition. Therefore, one of the leaders of the cosmetic industry in the person of L'Oréal for working in the Asian market specially grows a new type of artificial human skin.
According to Bloomberg, L'Oréal conducts experiments using human skin cells on the basis of its laboratory "Calibrate" products under the average Chinese resident. It is worth noting that the French manufacturer of cosmetics is the first in the world who decided to use the reconstructed donor skin cells in their research. And since the Chinese market is one of the most promising, the French decided to produce drugs specifically for him. According to Sanford Brown, vice president of research and innovation at L'Oréal China Co,
"Chinese consumers are the most demanding. This applies to virtually all categories of our products. They say: I am willing to pay only for what is really useful for me personally. In order to realize the great potential of the Chinese market, we decided to adapt our products to local residents as much as possible. "
According to scientists, the skin of representatives of different races reacts differently to external stimuli. On the skin of a representative of the European race, under the influence of ultraviolet, wrinkles appear, while the skin of an Asian woman will start to produce a pigment against aging. In addition, the interaction of the skin with products of the cosmetic industry is also different. For experiments on artificial skin, the daughter company L'Oréal in the person of EpiSkin is responsible. They test various ingredients on gelatin-like reconstituted skin. However, there is also a small snag: at the moment, China's legislation does not regulate experiments using reconstituted skin, so until the relevant laws are enacted, new cosmetics will not appear on sale.
