  • Patent number: 10918590
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide an agent for improving skin looseness or aging caused by dermal cavitation. By attracting fat stem cells into cavities in the dermis, dermal fibroblasts around the cavities can be activated and thus dermal cavitation can be ameliorated. As the results of a screening for fat stem cell attractants, it was found that rosemary extract and licorice extract are capable of attracting fat stem cells and, therefore, can improve skin looseness or aging caused by dermal cavitation.

  • Publication number: 20200232972
    Abstract: The purpose of the invention is to develop a method for screening anti-aging substances. The present inventors have found a phenomenon in which a dermis aging factor secreted by senescent cells acts on normal cells to promote the decomposition of dermal components and a reduction in the production of dermal components, and have arrived at developing a method for screening anti-aging substances by employing the dermis aging factor as an indicator.

  • Publication number: 20200164014
    Abstract: [PROBLEM] To provide a mesenchymal stem cell attracting agent, as well as an aging-factor production inhibiting agent, anti-aging agent, and dermal regeneration promoting agent including the attracting agent. [SOLVING MEANS] It was found that iris extract, olive leaf extract, and chamomile extract have a mesenchymal stem cell inducing action, which led to the invention of a mesenchymal stem cell attracting agent. Furthermore, it was discovered that mesenchymal stem cells inhibit aging factor production and activate dermal fibroblasts, whereby an aging-factor production inhibiting agent, anti-aging agent, and dermal regeneration promoting agent including the attracting agent were invented.

  • Publication number: 20200057007
    Abstract: The present invention addresses the problem of providing a method for observing skin tissue in which x-ray microCT is used. Adnexae such as sweat glands, sebaceous glands, and hair follicles can be identified in skin tissue by using acetone as a pretreatment solution and staining using an iodine-containing solution as a staining solution.
