Sebaceous glands help the skin stay moist and protect it against external influences such as harsh weather, pollution, and microbial assaults: The oily or waxy matter that these microscopic, exocrine glands secrete – called sebum – lubricates and softens the skin and hair.

At NYSCC Cosmetic Congress, BASF Care Creations and the Cell Therapy Research Institute CTIBiotech have announced the initial results of their joint research on 3D tissue models for the development and testing of bio-actives for skin care applications, with scientists revealing they have been able to improve BASF’s 3D skin model using CTIBiotech’s 3D human sebaceous gland technology.

Years - Research - Experts - Ex - Production

After two years of research, the experts have now demonstrated both the ex vivo production of physiological sebum in a long-term culture of a 3D human sebaceous gland model, and the regulation of this sebum production by means of active ingredients.

The new CTIBiotech 3D technology provides a powerful platform for skin care researchers wishing to study the function of sebaceous glands, in...
