Citropten (5,7-dimethoxycoumarin) and bergapten (5-methoxypsoralen) are present in bergamot oil which is used as a cosmetic tanning product. The aim of this study was to quantify, using HPLC, the amount of citropten and bergapten in the skin after the application of suntan products (emulsion and oil formulations). A suction blister technique, performed on the volar aspect of the forearm, permitted the collection of these two molecules. The blister fluid concentrations were 37 and 51 ng/ml (emulsion) and 26 and 23 ng/ml (oil), respectively, for citropten and bergapten. Our results show that the suction blister technique could be used for comparing transepidermal penetration of several compounds in vivo in man.

Citropten (5,7-dimethoxycoumarin) and bergapten (5-methoxypsoralen) are present in bergamot oil which is used as a tanning cosmetic product. The aim of this study was to quantify, using high-performance liquid chromatography, the amount of citropten and bergapten in the skin after suntan products application (an emulsion and an oil formulation). A suction blister technique performed of the anterior aspect of the forearm permitted the collection of these two accumulated molecules. Fluorometric and ultraviolet detections were used for citropten and bergapten determinations, respectively.

For the first time, we coupled reduced detonation nanodiamonds (NDs) with a plant secondary metabolite, citropten (5,7-dimethoxycoumarin), and demonstrated how this complex was able to reduce B16F10 tumor cell growth more effectively than treatment with the pure molecule. These results encouraged us to find out the specific mechanism underlying this phenomenon. Internalization kinetics and quantification of citropten in cells after treatment with its pure or ND-conjugated form were measured, and it was revealed that the coupling between NDs and citropten was essential for the biological properties of the complex. We showed that the adduct was not able to induce apoptosis, senescence, or differentiation, but it determined cell cycle arrest, morphological changes, and alteration of mRNA levels of the cytoskeletal-related genes. The identification of metaphasic nuclei and irregular disposition of β-actin in the cell cytoplasm supported the hypothesis that citropten conjugated with NDs showed antimitotic properties in B16F10 cells. This work can be considered a pioneering piece of research that could promote and support the biomedical use of plant drug-functionalized NDs in cancer therapy.
