Robert Predale of Johnson & Johnson is to kick off the first day by focusing on ‘Greening the supply chain to develop more sustainable formulations’ while Isabelle Imbert of ASI Vincience will address the importance of ‘Lipidic homeostasis in maintaining skin barrier structure and function through aging and environmental insults’.

Russel Walters of Johnson & Johnson will round up the day by tackling the issue of ‘Mapping SDS permeation and interaction with stratum corneum lipids by vibrational spectrocopy’.
