Skin Challenges: Final Agenda & Remarks

We asked the chairmen of the scientific committee about the challenges they want to present during the meeting.

Prof. Marvin Edeas, Université Paris Descartes, INSERM, Paris, France et Prof. Jean-François Doré, INSERM Lyon, France commented: "We tried to prepare and invite different experts who will highlight different axes and topics. We tried to open a door that we can call today "new technologies".

According to Prof. Edeas, "We need to initiate a new kind of thinking in terms of strategies to prevent, treat and regenerate skin. When we talk about skin, we talk about the first barrier of our body, mind, perception and emotion."

According to Prof. Doré, "We will talk about the recent mechanisms, cellular and molecular effects and metabolism and also the impact of external factors. The new generation of natural ingredients will be also presented."
