Current Insights on the Role of the Environment

Day 2 will kick off with presentations for the “showcasing young talent” student poster competition.

Session 3 will then move on to look at how external factors impact on our personal care needs. L’Oreal, France will speak about the synergy between UV and pollution and its effects on skin biology. This will then be complimented by a talk from Marc Eemon of Dow on the EU funded Citycare project on the impact of air pollutants on the skin’s biological responses and biomechanical properties. Clare O’Connor of Walgreens Boots Alliance will bring this all together with a talk entitled “Exposome: Where do we go from here?” to provide a broader understanding of the impact of the external environment on the skin.

Of course, the external environment has an impact on the hair too and Paul Cornwell of TRI Princeton will explain the impacts of “Dirty Air” on the hair.
