Featured Talk: Product Design to Protect, Repair and Detoxify Skin
Caution and safety drive today’s consumer choices as they re-engage in society and heal from the impact of the pandemic. For skin care, this means removing impurities and pollutants to ensure user health, repairing the skin from the effects of frequent cleansing and exposure to external aggressors, and protecting and replenishing the precious skin barrier to restore its natural harmony.
This presentation will address these facets of the “new normal,” with a look at innovations and formulating strategies to meet these new skin care needs.
