Nutricosmetics: Eating for Beauty

Tuesday 7th May, 14:00 - 17:40

Nutrition has long been associated with healthier skin, hair and nails. Although not a new concept, beauty from within is gaining momentum. The market for beauty
supplements has been growing steadily. In the nutricosmetics summit, we aim to provide an overview of market trends, ingredients and use of claims. In addition to busting some of the beauty myths, we will also look at epigenetics and introduce the latest 3D culture model to evaluate the effects of nutraceutical and cosmetic ingredients on skin health.
