The most important step in the life of a cosmetics product is the moment it hits the skin, according to the director of R&D at Clinique, Paolo Giacomoni.

Giacomoni is an expert in skin biochemistry and at the recent HBA show in New York, USA asked him how this can inform product formulation.

According to Giacomoni, knowledge of the skin biochemistry can not only help formulate a product that will feel fantastic from the first application, it can also help create products that work in conjunction with the skin’s own enzymes to improve efficacy.
