3D Skin Models Enable New Efficacy Testing Methodology

Merck will present insights into their latest cosmetic research during the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC) Congress 2018 taking place September 18th through 21st in Munich. 

In oral presentations and comprehensive poster sessions, the company will provide insights into a broad variety of topics, including their latest developments in leveraging the anti-pollution properties of natural ingredients. Other focus topics will be ways to study the permeability of active ingredients and how to maximize blue light protection by combining mica and inorganic UV-filters. In an interactive workshop, Merck will also present an innovative way for the efficacy testing using 3D skin models.

“We are now able to go beyond traditional analytics and testing methodologies” explains Jörg von Hagen, Head of Cosmetic Actives R&D at Merck. His team developed advanced 3D skin models to evaluate the efficacy of biological tanners & whiteners. The new technology provides specific 3D skin models with various properties to mimic different skin types. Von Hagen emphasizes the cross functional approach in their development: “We greatly benefit from Merck´s broad range of scientific and technological expertise across performance materials, healthcare and life science which fuel our research in cosmetics.” 

In addition to meeting the experts during the presentations and workshops, visitors at Merck’s booth can gain further insights into the company’s broad portfolio of effect pigments and effective active ingredients. Visitors to the IFSCC 2018 will find Merck at booth No. E12 in the INFINITY Hotel & Conference Resort Munich, Unterschleissheim, Germany.
