Subject: The use of a Mongolian herbal blend in comprehensive sun protection for the skin
Project Manager: Timea Sulenta-Pluta, M.Sc. firstname.lastname@example.org
The aim of the project is to produce a prototype of a protective cosmetic formulation with a high sun protection factor (SPF 50) which beside providing direct protection of the skin against negative effects of UV radiation will inhibit the proliferation of skin cancer cells, such as melanoma or basal cell carcinoma cells. The active ingredient of the formulation with such effects is a glycol-aqueous extract from a Mongolian herbal mixture containing powdered fruits of gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides), chebulic myrobalan (Terminalia chebula) and beleric (Terminalia bellirica).
