Antioxidants’ potential to delay skin ageing is focus
of Malta congress
New oral and topical antioxidant strategies for skin ageing are sought by the organisers of the Malta Skin Ageing Congress taking place October 29-30 in Malta.
Pr Marvin Edeas, Chairman of the Scientific Committee and President of ISANH, highlighted the importance of the conference on antioxidants: …our aim is to “Gather high scientific level with high technologies to match with the demand... antiageing, tanning or whitening?”. It’s very important to talk about the credibility of antioxidants especially in the field of skin-ageing. We will discuss how to use antioxidants in 2009 and why many clinical trials failed to demonstrate positive effects.
Oral and Topical strategies for skin antioxidants
The originality of this meeting is to gather academics and industrials involved in different anti-ageing fields. Among speakers include Pr J Krutmann from the University of Dusseldorf, Germany, who will discuss oral strategies that could increase the skin antioxidant defence system from within. The Topical strategy to increase skin antioxidant defense system from outside will be discussed by Pr S. Pinnel from Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, USA. Dr R. Peirano from Beiersdorf will look at targeting skin mitochondria with antioxidants as a potential strategy to fight against skin ageing. Beside the big companies involved at high level as L’Oreal & Beiersdorf for Cosmetics Applications of Antioxidants and Nestle & Carotech for Oral Applications of Antioxidants.
A further session will focus on the latest advances in antioxidant ingredients that have been known for some time, such as resveratrol and pomegranate.
Skin whitening satellite event
Skin whitening is the focus of the Friday afternoon session when Dr O Sorg from Geneva University Hospital, Switzerland, will open proceedings with a presentation on oxidative stress, hyperpigmentation and melanogenesis.
Finally there will be time for the presentation of abstracts, submitted in advance, on new whitening ingredients.
The Scientific Committee will select oral communications only if the ingredient or finished product has undergone clinical studies.
