Syntivia will attend the upcoming 30th IFSCC congress in Munich on September 18th to 21th 2018. This year, the congress focusses on “Cosmetics: Science for Beauty and Lifestyle”, showcasing the lastest scientific innovations to highlight how cosmetic science can keep improving our beauty and well-being on a daily basis.

 

UV and atmospheric pollution on the skin

Dr. Philippe Bedos, Syntivia’s CEO, and Dr. Sophie Abadie, one of our brilliant scientists, will present our latest findings in the field of skin biology during poster sessions. The presentations tackle two major concerns in cosmetic science: the effects of UVA and polluted environments on skin aging.

A NEW SKIN EXPLANT MODEL TO EVALUATE THE PROTECTIVE EFFECT OF DERMO-COSMETIC COMPOUNDS AGAINST PHOTOAGEING

Over time, skin is deteriorated by external stress, mainly due to ultraviolets rays. However, the visualisation of UVA effects to identify protective or repairing products remains a challenge for many cosmetic companies.

The Syntivia team has designed a new ex-vivo cutaneous model, that comes very close to in-vivo evaluation, to test the effectiveness of new products against photoaging. The model is based on human skin explants that are repeatedly irradiated with UVA rays to mimic the effect of chronic sun exposure.

Analyses based on protein labelling and 3D imaging allowed us to validate this model for testing…

IMPACT OF CIGARETTE SMOKE ON DIFFERENT SKIN MODELS

Numerous pollutants are known to affect skin health and play a role in skin pathogenesis. Among them, tobacco is a crucial factor when it comes to skin alteration.

To study the consequences of cigarette smoke exposure on skin, we designed new experimentation tools using cellular models and skin biopsies. Advanced genomic, protein and metabolic analyses highlight the pathways that are affected by this stress.
