The Photoprotective Effects of Almond Polyphenols and alpha-Tocopherol in a Three-Dimensional Human Skin Tissue Model.

Evans, Julie.

Abstract: Introduction: Almonds contain the nutrients alpha-tocopherol (AT) and almond polyphenols (AP), which have shown promise as photoprotectants in skin. Our study aims were: 1) assess the feasibility of nutrient studies in a 3-dimensinal (3D) human skin tissue model and 2) determine the photoprotection of AT and AP from ultraviolet-A (UVA) irradiation using this model. Methods and Materials:... read more
