IFSCC 2018 Poster Success: Joint Poster Selected Top 10 of all IFSCC Posters


Dresden/Germany and Steinhausen/Switzerland - 16th October 2018
Lipotype and Lipoid Kosmetik presented a joint poster featuring the core findings of their skin lipidome research at IFSCC 2018 in Munich. Overwhelmingly positive feedback resulted in placing the poster among the top 10.

The International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists is dedicated to international cooperation in cosmetic science and technology. This year’s congress was about “Cosmetics: Science for Beauty and Lifestyle”. Prior to the conference, Lipotype and Lipoid Kosmetik decided to showcase the capabilities and applicability of skin lipidomics in cosmetics and dermatology by presenting a poster with highlights and key messages of their research project.

The research in short: skin penetration properties of saturated phospholipids
Lipoid Kosmetik conducted this novel study to investigate skin penetration properties of dermal formulations based on hydrogenated phospholipids. Common to all topically used phospholipids is their ability to interact with skin structures and the similarity to epidermal lipids.

For the first time, the quantitative analysis of both exogenous phospholipids and endogenous skin lipids within a single measurement was demonstrated. The results confirm the properties of hydrogenated phospholipids to penetrate and accumulate in upper epidermal layers. Lipotype performed lipid analysis of phospholipids of an applied formulation, especially focusing on phosphatidylcholine.

Based on these findings, Lipoid Kosmetik will conduct further investigations to improve delivery and fixation of cosmetic actives.

A successful congress and a great poster
Lipotype and Lipoid Kosmetik chose the IFSCC to present their findings as the congress
focuses on exploring what modern society wants from cosmetics and dermatology. This represents both companies’ consumer oriented research best, which was confirmed on-site by the great feedback of those who visited the poster. Ultimately, the IFSCC committee chose to rank the joint poster of Lipotype and Lipoid Kosmetik among the top 10 of all IFSCC 2018 posters.

The poster can be downloaded through Lipotype’s website as well as complimentary material.
