Air pollution is considered as the second most important cause of extrinsic cutaneous ageing. It is widely accepted that the main mechanism involves the generation of Reactive Oxygen Species(ROS) which then leads to lipid and protein oxidation.

Today, a growing number of cosmetics manufacturers are developing products that aim to protect the skin from the harmful effect of air pollution. However, the challenge for substantiating an anti-pollution claim remains the lack of a standardized protocol for this type of efficacy testing.

This paper presents the salient features of a standardized protocol for anti-pollution claims.
