You have heard about herbal medicine. And you are probably using a natural skin care product. But do you know how these two are connected? And maybe you always wondered if that natural skin care product you are using is really “working” to affect your skin’s health and wellness? You can find answers to these questions and many more, and learn about the use of naturals in skin health and beauty in the CDR 6th annual workshop “Natural Products and the Skin” on April 23rd, 2014. The plenary speaker, Dr. Miri Seiberg, will provide an overview on the use of botanicals in skin health, wellness and beauty, from ancient times to today’s modern medicine. Miri will focus on today’s natural skin care products, which combine historical human use knowledge with scientific understanding and clinical testing. Today’s “cosmeceuticals” provide mechanistic understanding at the molecular, cellular and tissue levels, as well as safety assessments and clinical evaluations. Skin care companies are continuously developing new, safe and innovative products that are able to truly transform the health and appearance of skin. Examples of such innovations will be discussed in details throughout the workshop.

The 6th Annual CDR Skin Workshop’s focus on the developments in the natural skin care arena provides sponsors and exhibitors with a unique opportunity to reach key researchers in need of their services. The schedule will accommodate a special session for commercial exhibitors.
