Webinar: Skin Tone Modulation: In Vitro Pre-clinical and Clinical Efficacy Testing Strategies and Innovative Solutions in Cosmetics

July 13, 2017
Addressing uneven skin tone often associated with photo-aging is a key area of interest in the cosmetic industry. The design of novel, safe, and efficacious actives and ingredients capable of inducing subtle changes in skin tone can be accomplished using modern, relevant and reliable pre-clinical testing strategies prior to clinical assessment. During this one-hour webinar, IIVS Study Director, Dr. Gertrude-Emilia Costin and Dr. Manpreet Randhawa, Principal Scientist at Johnson & Johnson, discuss optimized in vitro testing platforms using pigmented tissue models...

Webinar: How GLPs Enhance the Quality of Regulated and Non-Regulated Toxicology

October 18, 2016
This one-hour webinar, led by IIVS Director of Quality and Compliance, introduces some of the concepts of Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs) designed to promote study and data integrity within an in vitro toxicology framework. Applying these concepts within your own laboratory should aid in production of robust, repeatable studies. View Slides...

Pigmentation & Melanogenesis

August 23, 2016
The efficacy of ingredients or final formulations in modulating human skin pigmentation can be assessed in vitro by analysis of melanin production in reconstructed tissue models of various phototypes. In addition, this testing platform is suitable for investigation of the dermal irritation potential of test materials after repeated exposures using a tissue viability endpoint. The evaluation of the potential impact on melanin production of raw ingredients or finished products intended for the modulation of skin pigmentation can be assessed using pigmented...
