BAS effect?

mariamaria Member
I found in this document that:
"In combination with hyaluronic acid and plant extracts, the polymer ensures deep and efficient cleaning of skin, toning, and waste removal and affects the intensity and duration of BAS effect." What is it?

    Biologically Active Substances? I've been googling my ass off and can't find it either. I have no idea.

    The sentence right after it is: "Therefore, it is recommended to use “Aristoflex AVC” in products for aging skin....." so probably something to do with Aging Skin?

    I think @Doreen is right...

    The BAS effect in all references I could find it was Biologically Active Substance, didn't matter if the subject was food-science, water processing, ethnobotany or something fourth. The references don't give a much of a clue by titles either as they reference a book chapter and an article, one on preservatives and one on hydrocolloids, respectively.

    The article @maria mentioned also states:
    In combination with hyaluronic acid and plant extracts, the polymer ensures deep and efficient cleaning of skin, toning, and waste removal and affects the intensity and duration of BAS effect.

    Which goes well with the mention of both the micellar formation of low-concentration some copolymers along with delayed-release drug delivery in regard to block polymers. (http://dx.doi.org/10.1039/B208503H).


    With that said, someone should tell the authors that is it is poor style to write an article without adding a list of abbreviations!

    @maria
    Wish I could've been of more help.  ;)
    I totally agree with @Sibech , it's indeed poor style of the authors not to explain the meaning of the used abbreviations.
    There are some people on this forum who could do with an explanation list as well...
