Abstract
Background: Cosmeceuticals represent the fastest growing area in dermatology. Dermatologists are in a good position to help patients understand the benefits and realistic limitations of these products. Regulatory frameworks differ significantly between the different markets and are far from being synchronized. The principal activity of the study and its scope: This study will provide an important step towards understanding current situation of cosmeceutical products. This is a coherent project making recommendation for strategic way related to improving vigilance, consumption and efficacy issues of cosmeceuticals. Methodology: A literature search was carried out between February and March 2013 in Medline, Pub Med, Web of knowledge, Scopus, Google scholar and the Cochrane Library databases with no time limit. References cited in published articles were examined until no further study was identified. All English, animal and human studies were included. Results: Research in this field, especially in the context of dermatologists? training, is particularly scant and needs to be improved. This project gives an insight to the industry and dermatology curriculum builders that there is strong need to develop the training spectrum in cosmeceuticals. Moreover, there are no synchronized guidelines. EU, Japan and Canada are major contributors in regulatory system. Conclusion or Recommendation: The confusing and contradicting global regulatory definitions of cosmeceuticals emphasize the need of harmonized guidelines or a synchronized regulatory framework. There is a need to improve dermatologists? knowledge and confidence about cosmeceuticals? ingredients safety and efficacy through various up-to-date/ evidence-based seminars, workshops and training courses. There should be common guidelines, e.g. for approaches to safety testing, particularly regarding alternatives to animal testing. Increase high quality basic and clinical research in cosmeceuticals will boost this rapidly developing area. Through means of these measures the establishment of an evidence-based cosmetic dermatology can be achieved. This project may serve as a tool for assisting future studies and primary research in this field.
