At this year’s NYSCC Suppliers’ Day tradeshow in New York City, Anna Langerveld, president and CEO of Genemarkers, was talking with attendees about her company’s latest offering, a test that skin care makers can use to help develop CBD products with the efficacy and benefits they desire. Cosmetics Design checked in the Langerveld to learn more.

“As a testing lab that specializes in testing services for the cosmetic industry…we’ve seen a lot of interest and a lot of enthusiasm about using CBD in cosmetic product development, particularly related to skin care,”​ Anna Langerveld, president and CEO of Genemarkers, tells Cosmetics Design editor Deanna Utroske.

Explaining the nuances of the Genemarkers CBD testing panel further, she says, “we found a subset of about 163 genes that are consistently regulated by the [CBD] extract. We selected those 163 genes for this panel based on their role in skin biology.” ​And, “we’ve got a nice subset of genes related to acne, or skin pigmentation, or antioxidant production (particularly inflammation).”

Watch the full video interview above to learn more about the new Genemarkers CBD gene expression panel as well as other tests the company offers beauty makers.
