Skin Ageing & Antioxidants: Innovations and Trends


Dear Colleagues,
This year, the International Society of Antioxidant in Nutrition and Health celebrates its 11 years old. Since the beginning, it has organized many national and international conferences on various subjects.
People live older thanks to new advances in medicine but they are becoming more demanding. They want to age in excellent health conditions and they want to look younger.
That’s why the Anti-Ageing Medicine seeks to find effective ways to fight against ageing and skin ageing in particular by different actions: oral or topical cosmetics, plastic surgery and regenerative medicine with stem cells.
Oxidative stress is included in multiple diseases: cancers, Alzheimer diseases, cataract, cardiovascular diseases, and skin ageing. The use of antioxidants to avoid oxidative stress and its damages has been well documented for several years.
But nowadays, what are the recent breakthroughs in the fight against skin ageing by antioxidants?
The aims of this conference are to:
- Draft the state of the art in skin ageing
- Highlight the recent innovations in skin ageing and photo ageing
- Try to find effective strategies to prevent and slow skin ageing and photo damages by antioxidants.

Skin Ageing 2009 will target researchers and academic professors, R&D departments, clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, food supplement companies, cosmetics companies, marketing departments, investors, start ups and actors of the economic environment.
Different session will be held:

  • General Skin ageing
  • Antioxidant strategies to delay skin ageing
  • Technical session: the keys to manage an antioxidant skin product
  • UV & Photoageing
  • Solar Ingredients
  • Whitening Ingredients
  • Business to business sessions

A Symposium will be held on Friday afternoon on Whitening Ingredients. The aim of Malta Skin Whitening Symposium which gathers academics and industrials, is to discuss the last innovations and applications of whitening.
We look forward to welcoming you in Malta for this particular event.
Dr Marvin Edeas
Chairman of the Scientific Committee
