Intensive Course in Dermato-Cosmetic Sciences - 2019

maandag, 16 september, 2019 - 11:00 to vrijdag, 20 september, 2019 - 17:30

The course offers an intensive training programme, designed for those of graduate and postgraduate status, in the field of dermato-cosmetic sciences. Our aspiration is not only to provide up-to-date reliable scientific information of university standard regarding the preparation and production of chemically and toxicologically well- defined dermato-cosmetic products, but also of the close interaction between products and the skin as a living organ. The course is aimed to form specialists for the cosmetic industry, the dermatologically oriented pharmaceutical industry and for professionals in research and development, scientists, marketeers and training people involved in dermato-cosmetics.

Our Intensive Course in Dermato-Cosmetic Sciences is organized this year for the 33rd time at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The focus of the course is on efficacy of cosmetic products”.

According to Cosmetic Regulation N°1223/2009/EC, besides the safety of cosmetics, their efficacy also plays an important role in the Product Information File (PIF), which needs to be prepared for each cosmetic product placed on the EU market. In Regulation N°1223/2009/EC, it is clearly indicated what criteria should be taken into consideration for effective claim substantiation.

In the actual course you will hear what the EU regulatory framework means in terms of safety and claim substantiation.

Key questions to be tackled by the course

How to realize daily skin care and how to deal with the delicate napkin zone of babies?
The microbiome of human skin: a hype or a key factor for maintaining a healthy skin?
Deodorants based on the skin microbiome concept: how far are we?
How important is the barrier function of the skin?  Can we affect it using cosmetics?
What is "sensitive skin”?
What are the newest findings concerning skin aging?  Role of sun exposure?
How can one efficiently protect the skin from premature aging?
Efficacy testing of a cosmetic product is part of the PIF of that product and claims made need to follow the criteria laid down in Regulation N°1223/2009/EC: what to expect and how to deal with it?
What is an iso-norm?
How effective are skin care products? Can their efficacy be objectively evaluated using non-invasive methods on humans? Are there new techniques available?
Is the application of new approach methodologies (NAMs) for safety evaluation of cosmetics possible today? How can we test safety and efficacy of cosmetics without experimental animals?
