Scientists from DSM’s Personal Care business discussed their latest research into the underlying causes of skin dryness and skin aging.
This research focused on pioneering technology that enabled the investigation and visualization of skin biochemistry at a molecular level. At the Scientific Session Rainer Voegeli, Senior Scientist at DSM Nutritional Products, gave a presentation on ‘The presence and consequence of essential and non-essential stratum corneum proteases in barrier impaired skin: the vital need for protease inhibitors’.
Out of 72 podium presentations, we are very proud to announce that Rainer Voegeli was honored with the IFSCC Applied Research Award. This prize is awarded to the presenter of the most meritorious podium presentation pertaining to applied cosmetic research at and IFSCC Congress.
In cooperation with partners from academia and private enterprise, DSM is increasingly employing computational technologies, including molecular modeling, to accelerate the design and development of revolutionary cosmetic ingredients and concepts. Our research was demonstrated via five posters, two of which drew specific attention from the committee and were placed in the best top ten, out of 312 posters submitted.
