Artificial visible light is everywhere in our modern life. Our mode of social communication confronts us with screens of all kinds and their use is on the rise. Curious to discover the potential consequences of such an environment on skin health, GATTEFOSSÉ initiated a two-year investigation with CYTOO to determine the direct effects of screen exposure on the skin. Unique equipment was designed by GATTEFOSSÉ to accurately recreate the characteristic light emitted by screens of electronic devices (smartphones, tablets, PC). By using micropatterning technology, a method to guide cell shape...

January 21, 2016, Grenoble, France – BASF and the French biotechnology company CYTOO join forces. The goal of the partnership is to develop and test active ingredients that contribute to increase skin firmness in skin care applications. Recent research results indicate that there are some ingredients that can stimulate the contractility of human fibroblasts (connective tissue cells) and thus improve skin appearance and firmness. To investigate more deeply these cell features, CYTOO developed FibroScreen™. This unique platform is based upon a micro-patterning technology that allows the...
