Many chemicals used for fragrance purposes in a diversity of products have allergenic potential. Based on such concerns, industry groups developed concentration limits for use of fragrance chemicals in personal care and cosmetic products.
The industry offers a vast armamentarium of skin care products (SCP) to cleanse the skin; to reduce/eliminate unpleasant skin symptoms; to restore, reinforce, fortify and protect undamaged, vulnerable or damaged skin; and to provide a pleasant skin and body feel. Skin care products are readily available and their promotions with a variety of tall claims are omnipresent. This text discusses the various interpretations of skin care, the diversity of its comprehensions and the various groups of receivers and t...
In order to maintain skin in "good condition" one can use cosmetic products. Importantly, those skin care products should fulfil specific requirements for specific life phases and specific skin conditions. In this review, we focused on 2 different age groups - namely, infants and the elderly - as well as on 2 specific skin conditions occurring in both age groups - very dry skin (Xerosis) and hyperhydrated skin (diaper rash). The goal in both conditions should be to maintain skin surface in its physiological...
The study was carried out to determine the presence and concentration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in some personal care products in Nigeria. Commonly used consumer care products grouped into four classes, namely: plastics, cosmetics, disinfectants and washing products, were purchased from some supermarkets in Ile-Ife, Nigeria. The solid samples were pulverized and the PAHs and OCPs were extracted with n-hexane and dichloromethane, respectively using Soxhle...
To investigate the immediate penetration and bactericidal effect of two oral care products marketed in China on an intact natural plaque biofilm model at different time points.
At last count, the pharmaceutical industry's new product pipeline included more than 7,000 products in late-stage development, roughly half of which are deemed "specialty." The reality is, our health care system is poorly equipped to address this issue head-on.
Human skin is a protective barrier against the toxic effects of cosmetics. Marketing of cosmetic products with ingredients tested on animals was prohibited in 2013. Since then, safety evaluation of cosmetic products is performed by using alternative in vitro toxicity tests. In vitro 3-D reconstructed human epidermis (RhE) tissue models are now used to define skin irritation/corrosion potentials of cosmetic ingredients and end-products. The main aim of this study was to evaluate skin irritation potentials of...
We tested six kinds of commercially available baby products containing nano-silver and divided them into two categories: baby food containers and baby oral care products, according to usage. We measured the total mass of silver, particle size, particle number concentration and the mobility under different simulated conditions. The total mass of silver in baby products and migration solutions was quantified by ICP-MS analysis, and the size of the migrated particles was investigated by single particle ICP-MS ...
Fetuses are susceptible to phthalates, known endocrine disrupting chemicals, within sensitive windows of development. It is crucial to determine the major sources of phthalates to reduce exposure. This study aims to examine the associations between usage patterns of personal care products (PCPs) and urinary levels of phthalate metabolites across pregnancy in a multi-hospital based birth cohort.
Occurrence of eleven pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) along Huangpu River, a representative urban river of megacity Shanghai, was investigated in four sampling campaigns. The overall concentrations of PPCPs ranged from
To identify if proprietary names are used by health care practitioners when prescribing over-the-counter (OTC) drug products. These findings can inform evaluation of proposed proprietary names for both prescription and OTC drug products.
To present the recommendations and supporting literature for selection and processing of RBC products in critically ill children developed by the Pediatric Critical Care Transfusion and Anemia Expertise Initiative.
Medications and self care products may have adverse effects on the gingiva. These adverse effects can be divided into inflammation, intrinsic discolouration, irritation, trauma, cytotoxicity, lichenoid reaction, and proliferation. This article deals with the first 6 types of adverse effects mentioned: a subsequent article will deal with the last type mentioned. Since contraceptives were introduced, there have been indications that they cause or promote gingivitis, but with the current contraceptives this ad...
According to the Research Group for Primary Medical Care (PMV), approximately 890,000 people in Germany were suffering from a chronic wound in 2012. This corresponds to a prevalence of 1.1%. Ulcus cruris, diabetic ulcers and decubital ulcers are among the most frequent causes of chronic wounds (57-80%). The guarantee for successful wound care is based on a good understanding of the physiology of the wound healing process. A disorder of the phase-like course can lead to complications, delays or suspensi...
The decision to develop a formal Bloodless Medicine Program to attract and effectively care for patients who decline blood transfusion was made in 1998 by clinical and administrative leaders at our flagship hospital, Allegheny General Hospital, part of the Allegheny Health Network. The Bloodless Medicine Program has more than 20 years of experience in caring for this sometimes challenging patient population and with this experience has provided extensive insight into best practices related to effective, saf...
A methodology to assess the health impact of skin sensitizers is introduced, which consists of the comparison of the probabilistic aggregated exposure with a probabilistic (individual) human sensitization or elicitation induction dose. The health impact of potential policy measures aimed at reducing the concentration of a fragrance allergen, geraniol, in consumer products is analysed in a simulated population derived from multiple product use surveys. Our analysis shows that current dermal exposure to geran...
Many generic pharmaceutical products are currently available on the market place worldwide. Recently, there is a growing concern on the quality and efficacy of generic products. However, health care professionals such as physicians and pharmacists are in difficult situations to choose among alternatives.
Trends in the widespread use of personal care products (PCPs) containing triclosan (TCS) and triclocarban (TCC) have led to continuous emissions of these chemicals into the environment. Consequently, both chemicals are ubiquitously present at high concentrations in the aquatic systems based on widely reported measured environmental concentration (MECs) data in different environmental systems (e.g. freshwater) worldwide, especially in developed countries. In developing countries, however, lack of MECs data i...
Beliefs and restrictions regarding acceptance of blood products by members of the Jehovah's Witness faith often provoke discussion among health care professionals regarding alternative interventions. Establishing and maintaining an open dialog with women and families of the Jehovah's Witness faith regarding their beliefs on the use of blood and blood products are vital in creating a therapeutic relationship between families and the health care team. Such rapport facilitates the discussion of strategies to a...
Health care needs of individuals living in the community are increasing. To meet the rising need, unregulated care providers are providing more complex patient care. The aim of this review is to articulate the unregulated care provider role by identifying patient care activities offered by unregulated care providers in home care.
In this study, three typical cyclic siloxanes (CSis) were found in hair care products, indoor dust and indoor air samples at hair salons in Hanoi, Vietnam. The total concentrations of CSis in three kinds of hair care products ranged from 8.77 to 515 μg g. The mean and median concentrations of CSis in dust samples collected at hair salons were 671 and 654 μg g, respectively. The total concentrations of CSis in indoor air samples collected at the hair salons ranged from 415 to 2610 ng m (mean: 1...
There are many factors that influence the decisions that patients make regarding where they receive care. Two hundred thirty-three patients were surveyed in the primary care setting to determine patient satisfaction and characteristics that led patients to seeking treatment at primary care offices, urgent care centers, or emergency rooms. Respondents rated quality of care highest at the primary care office (P < .001). Patients also demonstrated preference for in-person care compared with video conferencing ...
Characterization of indoor emissions of cyclic volatile methylsiloxanes (cVMS) due to the use of personal care products is important for elucidating indoor air composition and associated health risks. This manuscript describes a mass transfer model to characterize the emission behaviors of decamethylcyclopentasiloxane (D5, the most abundant indoor cVMS) from skin lipids. A C-history method is introduced to determine the key parameters in the model, i.e., the initial concentration and diffusion coefficient o...
Triage algorithms are ubiquitous in emergency care settings, but the extent of their use in primary care is unknown. This study asks whether primary care practices prioritize patients with more acute service needs.
Current nursing home policy emphasizes the need for collaborative, team-based care planning in which families and/or residents are actively involved. Resident care conferences are common where care providers, families, and/or residents discuss and coordinate resident care needs and evaluate care goals. This study critically examines the process, structure, and content of care conferences to expand our understanding of how resident care is negotiated among care providers and families in this context.
