About this course:

Part II of this 3-part series offers cosmetic industry professionals in all sectors - regardless of experience and scientific background - an overview of popular and upcoming skincare ingredient technologies designed to prevent or reverse skin aging. Beginning with an introduction to the skin’s numerous cell types and basic anatomy and physiology, this course then examines the effects of internal and external factors on the skin’s aging processes at cellular and tissue levels. New research now influencing today’s skin care development trends will be highlighted. Peptides, advanced plant and stem cell extracts, antioxidants, growth factors, sunscreens, and other age-fighting ingredients currently found in cosmetics, as well as technologies now emerging from research labs around the world, will be discussed within the framework of their effects on aging skin. Legal cosmetic claims and claims substantiation methodologies will be discussed in light of upcoming regulations that will go into effect in the next few years.
