Estee Lauder has announced the results of its brand’s research on skin hydration, skin barrier improvement, anti-aging and anti-sugar.
On July 5, 2023, the 25th World Congress of Dermatology (WCD) was held in Singapore, where Estée Lauder announced its latest research in the field of skin health.
In a survey of 160 women between the ages of 35-65 with dry skin, mild to moderate crow’s feet and infrequent skin care, Estée Lauder found that regular use of a strong moisturizer not only relieved dry skin, but also improved the firmness of the dry skin stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis), thereby reducing the appearance of facial aging.
In a study of experimenters of all skin tones, La Mer scientists found that topical creams containing ferments of giant cysticercus and other ingredients (multi-ingredient creams) improved the skin barrier and restored skin elasticity, and significantly reduced skin redness (erythema) and irritation for an anti-aging effect.
In addition, Estée Lauder researchers shared the latest findings on sirtuins (SIRT, also known as longevity protein). The results show that SIRT activity in skin cells is linked to environmental stressors, including UV and ozone, and that four activators – SIRT 1, 2, 3 and 6 – play different roles in maintaining youthful skin performance.
In a clinical trial led by Clinique that evaluated 42 women with moderate facial photodamage, a targeted triple-action topical beauty serum was found to have the same anti-aging efficacy as a single laser treatment.
In addition to announcing anti-aging research results, Estée Lauder also announced a study on the anti-glycation properties of six compounds, which indicated that GlcNAc, DE, vitamin C and E were the most effective in fighting sugar, and that the anti-glycation ability of compounds used in skin care formulations may be associated with a reduction in skin pathology.
“For over 75 years, innovation in skin science has been our north star. With rapidly emerging knowledge and advancements from the dermatologic and scientific communities, the science of skin care has never been more important,” said Lisa Napolione, Senior Vice President, Global Research & Development (R&D). “As we live longer, research on health span and longevity will only accelerate. To meet these innovation challenges, we are thinking differently, and in a manner enabled by novel science across all our global laboratories and clinics.”
