Online Glossary edited with meticulous attitude and published as convenience for site content reference,including glossaries of related different topics,Glossary Cosmetic are dedicated to cosmetics and phyto derived cosmetic components.The first archaeological evidence of cosmetics usage is found in Egypt around 3500 BC during the Ancient Egypt times with some of the royalty having make up such as Nefertiti, Nefertari, mask of Tutankhamun!
Cosmetics are substances used to enhance the appearance or odor of the human body. Cosmetics include skin-care creams, lotions, powders, perfumes, lipsticks, fingernail and toe nail polish, eye and facial makeup, permanent waves, colored contact lenses, hair colors, hair sprays and gels, deodorants, baby products, bath oils, bubble baths, bath salts, butters and many other types of products. Their use is widespread, especially among women in Western countries. A subset of cosmetics is called "make-up," which refers primarily to colored products intended to alter the user's appearance. Many manufacturers distinguish between decorative cosmetics and care cosmetics.
The manufacture of cosmetics is currently dominated by a small number of multinational corporations that originated in the early 20th century, but the distribution and sale of cosmetics is spread among a wide range of different businesses. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which regulates cosmetics in the United States defines cosmetics as: "intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the body's structure or functions." This broad definition includes,any material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product. The FDA specifically excludes soap from this category.

Hamamelis virginiana:See witch hazel.
hamamelitannin:Tannin that is found in witch hazel. It can be a skin irritant but it also has potent antioxidant properties. See tannin.
Haslea ostrearia extract:Derived from a water plant also known as blue algae. In pure concentrations this extract can have antiviral properties on skin. See algae.
hawthorn extract:When taken orally hawthorn may improve circulation (Source: Phytomedicine, 1994, volume 1, pages 17~4). The bioflavonoids in hawthorn are potent antioxidants (Planta Medica, 1994, volume 60, pages 323~28). But there is no research showing that this extract has any benefit for skin.
hayflower extract:Plant extract that, due to its constricting effect on skin, can be an irritant. There is no research supporting the claim that it can have any effect on skin.
hazelnut oil:Oil extracted from the hazelnut; used as an emollient. See natural moisturizing factors.
Heather Extract:A flower whose constituents have anti-inflammatory properties, though significant research is lacking. It appears to have antibacterial properties as well (Sources: Journal of Ethnopharmacology, October 1995 pages 61-76 and November 2002, pages 73-77).
heavy water:Water in which hydrogen atoms have been replaced by deuterium; it is used chiefly as a coolant in nuclear reactors.
Hedera helix:See English ivy.
hedione:Synthetic fragrant component in products that can also be a skin irritant.
helianthus oil:See sunflower oil.
Helichrysum italicum:One species of a plant family that includes strawflower. Extracts of these plants can have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties for skin (Sources: Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, March 2002, pages 365~71; and Life Sciences, January 2002, pages 1023~033).
hematin:Iron-containing portion of blood. It has no known benefit for skin.
hemolymph extract:Extract of crustacean blood. It can be a source of proteins or other water-binding agents, but there is no research showing it to have special benefit when applied topically on skin.
hemp seed oil:From the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. Because both hemp and marijuana are from the genus Cannabis, they are often thought (erroneously) to have similar properties. Yet because hemp contains virtually no THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the active ingredient in marijuana, it is not used as a drug of any kind. In cosmetics, hemp seed oil is used as an emollient. Other claims about its effect on skin are not substantiated.See fatty acid.
hepatocyte growth factor (HGF):Stimulates division in cells lining the liver, skin cells, and cells that produce skin color. See human growth factor.

Hordeum vulgare extract:See barley extract.
horse chestnut extract:May have anti-inflammatory properties for skin. Orally it has been shown to reduce edema in the lower leg by improving the elastic tissue surrounding the vein (Sources: Pharmacological Research, September 2001, pages 183~93; Phytotherapy Research, March 2002, number S1, pages 1-5; and American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, 2002, volume 3, number 5, pages 341~48).

It also has antioxidant properties, but there are many other potent antioxidants to use that don't cause any skin irritation.
Huang qi:See milk vetch root.
human growth factor:It is important to make it clear that the topic of human growth factor (HGF) is exceedingly complicated. The physiological intricacies of the varying HGFs and their actions challenge any layperson's comprehension. Nonetheless, because the use of HGF seems to be the direction some skin-care companies are taking, and because there is a large body of research showing its efficacy for wound healing (but not for wrinkles), it does deserve comment.
HGFs make up a complex family of hormones that are produced by the body to control cell growth and cell division in skin, blood, bone, and nerve tissue. Most significantly, HGFs regulate the division and reproduction of cells, and they also can influence the growth rate of some cancers. HGFs occur naturally in the body but they are also synthesized and used in medicine for a range of applications, including wound healing and immune system stimulation. HGFs are chemical messages that bind to receptor sites on the cell surface (receptor sites are places where cells communicate with a substance to let them know what or what not to do). HGFs must communicate with cells to instruct them to activate the production of new cells, or to instruct a cell to create new cells that have different functions. Another way to think of HGFs is that they are messengers designed to be received or "heard" by specific receptor sites or "ears" on the cell. HGFs, such as transforming growth factor (TGF, stimulates collagen production) or epidermal growth factor (EGF, stimulates skin cell production), play significant roles in healing surgical wounds. The main task of HGFs is to cause cell division, which is helpful; however, at certain concentrations and lengths of application they can cause cells to over-proliferate, which can cause cancer or other health problems.
But what happens when you put HGFs on skin, particularly TGF and EGF, which some companies claim their products contain? The risk is that they could accelerate the growth of skin cancer by stimulating the overproduction of skin cells. In the case of TGF, which stimulates collagen production, it can encourage scarring. This is because scars are the result of excessive collagen production, and if you make too much collagen you get a scar or a knot on the skin such as a keloidal scar. Most of the research on the issue of HGFs for skin has looked primarily at the issue of wound healing, and at short-term use of HGFs. In skin-care products, they would be used repeatedly, possibly over long periods of time. A shortcoming of HGFs, according to an article by Dr. Donald R. Owen in the March 1999 issue of Global Cosmetic Industry, is that "The body produces these [HGFs] in exquisitely small concentrations at just the right location and time.... Actual growth factors such as [EGF and TGF-B] are [large] configurations, which do not penetrate the skin.... They [also] lose their activity within days in water or even as solids at normal temperatures.... [Yet], even after all these complications, the siren's song is too strong. We [the cosmetics chemists] will use them." The research into HGFs is without question intriguing, but there is much that's not known, especially in terms of long-term risk or stability when they're used in cosmetics and applied to skin. In this arena, if cosmetics companies continue to use HGFs, it is the consumer who will be the guinea pig.
humectant:See water-binding agent.
Humulus lupulus extract:See hops.
hyaluronic acid:Component of skin tissue that is used in skin-care products as a good water-binding agent. See natural moisturizing factors.
hybrid sunflower seed oil:Non-volatile plant oil used as an emollient. A natural source of tocopherols (vitamin E). See vitamin E.
Hydnocarpus anthelmintica:See chaulmoogra oil.
Hydrastis canadenis:See goldenseal.
hydrocortisone:Hormone from the adrenal gland that can also be created synthetically. It has potent anti-inflammatory properties for skin, but prolonged use can destroy collagen in the skin and cause skin fragility (Sources: American Academy of Dermatology Guidelines of Care for the Use of Topical Glucocorticosteroids, www.aadassociation.org/Guidelines/topicalglu.html; Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, 1996, volume 35, pages 615-619; and Cosmetic Dermatology, July 2002, pages 59~2).
hydrocotyl extract:See Centella asiatica.
hydrogen peroxide:There is a great deal of current research showing that hydrogen peroxide is problematic as a topical disinfectant because it can greatly reduce the production of healthy new skin cells (Source: Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, September 2001, pages 675~87). Hydrogen peroxide is also a significant oxidizing agent, meaning that it generates free-radical damage. While it can function as a disinfectant, the cumulative problems that can stem from impacting the skin with a substance that is known to generate free-radical damage, impair the skin's healing process, cause cellular destruction, and reduce optimal cell functioning are serious enough so that it is better to avoid its use (Sources: Carcinogenesis, March 2002, pages 469~75; and Anticancer Research, July-August 2001, pages 2719~724). See free-radical damage.
hydrogenated castor oil hydroxystearate:Used as an emollient and thickening agent in cosmetics. See glyceryl ester.
hydrogenated coco-glycerides:Used as an emollient and thickening agent in cosmetics. See glyceryl ester.
hydrogenated didecene:A skin-conditioning agent derived from didecene, which is a hydrocarbon. Hydrocarbons are organic compounds that contain only carbon or hydrogen. Examples of common hydrocarbons include mineral oil, petroleum, and paraffin wax.
hydrogenated lecithin:See lecithin.
hydrogenated palm glyceride:Used as an emollient and thickening agent in cosmetics. See glyceryl ester.
hydrogenated polydecene:Synthetic polymer that functions as an emollient and skin-conditioning agent.
hydrogenated polyisobutene:A synthetic polymer used as a skin-conditioning agent and emollient.
hydrolyzed actin:Form of protein that has water-binding properties for skin. See water-binding agent.
hydrolyzed conchiolin protein:A component of oyster shell. It can have water-binding properties for skin. See protein.
Hydrolyzed jojoba esters:Essential fatty acids from the jojoba plant, broken down by water to form a new complex with properties different from the original source. An analogy of this process is the manner in which humans digest food to turn it into energy. Jojoba esters function as a skin conditioning agent.
hydrolyzed reticulin:Reticulin are a type of fibers found in skin and thought to be part of a systematic network that surrounds collagen fibers and helps hold them together. There is no evidence that applying reticulin externally to skin can have any effect on collagen whatsoever. Moreover, the hydrolyzing process needed to mix reticulin into a skin-care product also alters its form, which may change or stop anything it might do.
hydrolyzed silk:See silk.
Hydrolyzed vegetable protein:Composed of various protein substances derived from vegetables and broken down by water to form a new complex with properties different from the original source. Used as a water-binding agent.
hydroquinone:Substance that is known to successfully reduce the intensity of freckles, melasma, and general brown patching by inhibiting melanin production. For continued and increased effectiveness it must be used long term. Unprotected sun exposure should be avoided, because it reverses the effect of hydroquinone by increasing melanin production. Occasionally, at higher concentrations, persons with a darker skin type will experience increased pigmentation, but this is rare. It can cause mild skin irritation and there is the possibility of an allergic reaction. Hydroquinone in 1% to 2% concentrations is available in over-the-counter products; 4% concentrations are available by prescription only (Source: American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, September-October 2000, pages 261~68).
There is concern that hydroquinone is a potentially carcinogenic substance. In vitro, hydroquinone has a toxic effect on cells containing melanin (Source: Biochemical Pharmacology, March 1999, pages 663~72). Aside from the in vitro studies (done in test tubes), the only harmful effects are reported in animal studies where hydroquinone is fed to animals. In these studies tumor creation or DNA damage is noted. However, this is not the case in epidemiological studies in which production workers (meaning those workers involved in the manufacture of hydroquinone) have been shown to have lower death rates and reduced cancer rates when compared with the population as a whole. Adverse effects associated with skin-lightening products that contain hydroquinone in FDA-regulated products have been limited to a small number of cases of hyperpigmentation (Sources: Critical Reviews in Toxicology, May 1999, pages 283~30; and Food and Chemical Toxicology, November 1999, pages 1105~111).
hydroxyethylcellulose:Plant-derived thickening agent typically used as a binding agent or emulsifier. Also used (most often in styling products) as a film-forming agent.
hydroxylated lecithin:See lecithin.
hydroxypalmitoyl sphinganine:Sphinganine is a sphingoid base, found concentrated in mammalian epidermis, that may serve as a natural antifungal barrier preventing infection by pathogenic fungi. However, it may also inhibit ceramide production (Source: Food Chemistry and Toxicology, January 2002, pages 25~1).
hydroxyproline:Derived from the amino acid proline, it is a fundamental component of collagen and other structural proteins. Skin's ability to heal is partly determined by the presence of hydroxyproline within it. Whether topical application of hydroxyproline to the skin can help with wound healing has not been substantiated. However, it does have water-binding properties similar to those of collagen.
hydroxypropyl guar:See guar gum.
hypericum extract:See St. John's wort.
Hypnea musciformis extract:See algae.
hypoallergenic:Term used by the cosmetics industry to lead consumers to believe they are using a product that will not cause them to have an allergic or sensitizing skin reaction to a product. However, the word "hypoallergenic" is not regulated in any manner by the FDA and it is therefore used indiscriminately by cosmetics companies without any substantiation or need to show proof of the claim.
