Skin ageing is a complex phenomenon resulting from different pathophysiological mechanisms. Its investigation, as well as the development of new actives and formulations, is a fascinating and stimulating area of research. This unique meeting will gather scientists from ISBS and several European Cosmetic Scientist Societies to develop, discuss and investigate new approaches to the understanding, the objective quantification and the development of new strategies for prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The main topics will cover skin physiology and pathology of ageing, new active ingredients and cosmetic formulations, substantiation of efficacy claims and new non invasive technology to investigate and quantify skin aging and cosmetic treatment of this condition, legal and regulatory aspects.
