BRAIN has unique experience in the development of cell models for simulating sweat gland function and other sensory reactions of the skin – known as cell-based assays (CBAs). These assays allow e.g. the simulation of physiological processes in the skin. Based on this expertise BRAIN has teamed up with with scientific partners and developed a new concept to reduce human sweating.
Natural active ingredients that protect against perspiration and body odor are in great demand. These are also sought after as alternatives to products that contain aluminum and pose health risks if used in excess. BRAIN’s research aims at directly influencing primary fluid secretion in human sweat glands using natural compounds from BRAIN’s BioArchive. This scientific achievement received the top award in the “Applied Research” category at the IFSCC Congress 2018.
CBAs are also fueling the TRiP2Application programs TRiP2Taste and TRiP2Sensation which provide access to bio-based ingredients for food and skin care products.
