This year’s Annual Meeting of the Society for Investigative Dermatology is the organization's 76th such event. It will be held in Portland, Oregon, from Wednesday April 26 through Saturday April 29.
SID exists “to advance and promote the sciences relevant to skin health and disease through education, advocacy, and scholarly exchange of scientific information,” according to the group’s online mission statement. And beyond the work of the organization, SID publishes The Journal of Investigative Dermatology.
Educational programming at the meeting includes poster presentations and this is where the new findings from The Estée Lauder Companies R&D team come in. The team will be presenting 6 posters at SID.
The Estée Lauder Companies data will cover these topics: pollen’s effects on the skin, protecting skin from photo-aging, avoiding skin barrier disruption from infrared radiation, modulating skin’s melatonin receptors to limit DNA damage from UV light, how the skin movement that occurs when blinking accelerates eye skin aging, and screening active ingredients for their ability to limit H2O2-induced hair aging.
The Estée Lauder Companies is, to say the least, well-regarded in beauty. And the company has long prided itself on the science behind its products, which is what lands Estée at the SID annual meeting this month.
“The Estée Lauder Companies R&D is committed to continually bringing new approaches to industry-leading skin and hair research. As leaders in the cosmetic industry with a long-standing scientific heritage, we have been at the forefront of many areas of research including skin and hair structure and architecture, repair and protection, inflammation and reactivity, as well as circadian and other control mechanisms," Kurt Schilling, senior vice president of basic science research and advanced technology for the Companies’ research and development team, tells the press.
“We have applied this emerging knowledge, along with our expertise in formulations, to deliver unique beauty solutions that balance the effects of nature and nurture for our consumers,” he adds. So it’s entirely likely that the data showcased as SID will influence future product formulas.
