Symrise won the IFSCC Poster Award for the best poster presented at the recent conference held in Zurich from September 21-23, 2015. The award honors the company's work on ingredients, which help the skin to fight against the impact of particulate pollution. For the project, Symrise collaborated with professor Jean Krutmann's research group at the IUF in Dusseldorf, Germany.
"We are very proud to have won the only best poster award of the IFSCC this year," said Imke Meyer, manager of cell biology/cosmetic ingredients at Symrise. "IT shows the relevance for solutions to help fight the effects of air pollution on the human skin. By developing ingredients that address this topic, we are supporting formulators of cosmetics effectively. Our special thanks go to Professor Jean Krutmann and his team. They have contributed valuable expertise in skin research so that we were able to identify the most promising ingredient approach."
