During Malta Skin Ageing 2009, the Organizing Committee will allocate significant time to discuss the latest advancies and controversies relating to skin ageing, oxidative stress and antioxidants.
Our objective is to provide answers and to give a future vision of how antioxidants can delay and may stop the ageing of skin.
Malta Skin Ageing 2009 will gather high scientific speakers from University and from Indutries. We will have the pleasure to listen to Dr Pageon, from L’Oreal Research, Dr Blatt from Beiersdorf, Pr Pinnell from Skinceuticals and Dr Richelle from Nestlé.
The aims of Malta Skin Ageing 2009 are to :
- Draft the state of the art in skin ageing and oxidative stress
- Highlight the recent innovations in skin ageing and photo ageing
- Try to find effective strategies to prevent and slow skin ageing and photo damages by using antioxidants (oral and topical).
Different session will be held:
  • General Skin ageing
  • Antioxidant strategies to delay skin ageing
  • Technical session: the keys to manage an antioxidant skin product
  • UV & Photoageing
  • Solar Ingredients
  • Whitening Ingredients
  • Business to business sessions 
A Symposium will be held on Friday afternoon on Whitening Ingredients. The aim of Malta Skin Whitening Symposium which gathers academics and industrials is to discuss the last innovations and applications of whitening.
