Podium Presentation : Basic Research Award

Theme: New skin care paradigm targeting skin anti-aging system
Presenter: Tomonobu Ezure, Senior Scientist, Ph.D., Shiseido Advanced Research Center
Summary: Shiseido conducted joint research with the National Institute for Physiological Science and International University of Health and Welfare and discovered that aging is associated with a decrease of stem cells in the dermal layer, but the stem cells are well maintained around sebaceous glands even in aged skin. Dermal stem cells provide new cells in the dermal layer as they grow, and it is expected that they can be a critical solution for skin rejuvenation. Shiseido aims to apply this finding to the development of new skin care products.
