They are used either to stabilize the cosmetic formulation or to protect the skin. As a formulation stabilizer, they serve as a "technical antioxidant." Here they are being used to prevent the oxidative deterioration of the labile ingredients such as unsaturated fatty acids or oxidation-prone active ingredients. Both synthetic compounds like butylated hydroxy toluene and natural antioxidants like alpha-tocopherol are frequently used for this purpose. As a skin protectant, they serve as a "biological antioxidant." In recent years, this second application mode has become increasingly important. The prevention of oxidantive processes within the skin is therefore an additional function of antioxidants in skin-care cosmetics. view less

However, product evaluation in the lab during de-velopment most often focuses on selected, isolated parameters, like for example measurement of skin elasticity with a physical apparatus or the assessment of hair volume in a panel test. However, it is well known that sensory perception is strongly cross-linked among the different senses, e.g. changing the perfume of a cream formulation can lead to a completely different subjective evaluation of skin smoothness or pickup properties from the jar, though from an objective point of view, these properties have not changed at all. These observations can be denominated as “intersensory” phenomena. As in the end, the holistic consumer perception decides on the success or failure of a new product, methods for the lab have to be developed that take into account the interdependency of all senses and their effects on the consumer – both physically and mentally, which finally results in an emotional response. view less
