New | Pre-day Workshop

When you’re looking to develop products in the Skin Microbiome space, there are two main things you know to know: 
 
1. How do I pick ingredients and formulate a product that is effective, scalable and stable?

2. How to I test a product in a reliable and reproducible way to ensure it is clinically safe and effective?

 
New for Europe's first Skin Microbiome Congress in London, 14 - 15 November, you're invited to attend an exclusive pre-event one day workshop. 


Join us on 13 November 2018 for 2 interactive discussions around the formulation and testing of microbiome based products. Learn industry leaders and use the opportunity to get answer to some of the most commonly asked questions and challenges whilst discussing strategies for product development.

Why Attend

SKIN MICROBIOME IS SET TO REVOLUTIONISE DERMATOLOGY

With the European cosmetics industry playing a leading role in science-driven product development and innovation in skincare, we are proud to announce that we are bringing the Skin Microbiome Congress to London, following the success of our sold out inaugural event in Boston.

As new clinical data transpires to support the role of the skin microbiome in common conditions from acne and eczema to dandruff and skin allergies, Pharmaceutical Researchers and Cosmetic Formulators alike are turning their attention to designing and testing products that contain live bacteria, bacterial extracts or prebiotic and postbiotic ingredients to manipulate the skins microbiota.

The European Skin Microbiome Congress will bring together leaders from pharmaceutical, therapeutics and cosmetics industries, to showcase:

• Cutting edge research

• New therapeutic & cosmetic advances

• Consumer trends & insights

• Regulatory considerations

Join 200+ industry leaders to explore the different pathways market and how to translate therapeutic research into commercially viable cosmetic products.

View highlights from the inaugural SOLD OUT
Skin Microbiome Congress, May 30-31, 2018

Discover the potential of prebiotic, probiotic and postbiotic products being developed to protect and promote a healthy microbiome and ultimately combat dermatological conditions from acne and eczema to dandruff and skin allergies. Take advantage of: 

  • Effective Networking - Pre-schedule private meetings with any individual or company onsite using the online meeting scheduler application
  • Cutting Edge Research – Discover the latest advancement in therapeutic & cosmetic products containing live bacteria, bacterial extracts, or active ingredients to promote & protect the skins microbiome
  • Consumer Trends - Understand how consumers trends towards natural, organic products and active beauty are shaping the evolution of products adapted to the skin microbiome
  • Clinical Trials – Explore how to design an effective clinical trial & translate research into clinically & commercially viable therapeutics
  • Competitive Edge – Determine how to differentiate your product line & seize this market opportunity, gaining market share with scientifically backed products
  • Regulation – Understand the different paths to market & regulatory considerations necessary to launch a cosmetic or therapeutic product

With an increasing consumer trend towards natural products, what’s more natural than harnessing the bacteria on your skin? Don't miss your chance to understand the next generation of natural skincare products!

Marie Drago is a French Doctor in Pharmacy and a member of the French Society of Cosmetic Science, with over 15 years’ experience working for successful and innovative skincare brands. After discovering how a prebiotic and probiotic diet could improve the symptoms of the gluten intolerance that had been plaguing her life for years, Marie got a Eureka moment: What if we applied the same science to skin?

After discovering how a prebiotic and probiotic diet could improve the symptoms of the gluten intolerance that had been plaguing her life for years, Marie got a Eureka moment: What if we applied the same science to skin?

Marie’s thesis on the microbiome and the enormous benefits of harnessing helpful bacteria gave her the vision and the know-how to create Gallinée’s formulations. Thanks to her pharmacy background and her beauty experience, Marie designed formulas like no other, and patented the triple biotic complex that you can now find in Gallinée’s products.
