Cosmetics Design Editor Deanna Utroske to speak at 2020 Anti-Ageing Skin Care Conference

On the first day of The Anti-Ageing Skin Care Conference (November 3), Cosmetics Design Editor Deanna Utroske will be speaking about market and consumer trends in skin aging. [If you missed the event or Utroske's presentation, find her full remarks on market and consumer trends in skin aging here on LinkedIn. ​]

In recent years, the antiaging skin care category has seen significant change as shoppers, consumer media, and brands shift focus onto wellness, longevity, prevention, and protection. But behind all the current and emerging trends, the concept of antiaging remains fairly intact: “the basic premise of antiaging skin care is that topical and ingestible products can slow, limit, or otherwise mitigate the visible physiological and environmental changes that impact the skin over time,” ​as Utroske will explain.

She’ll also cover the new menopause skin care category​, the expansion of anti-aging into other personal care and beauty categories, the importance of blue light protection, and much more.
