Education Hour

  • Speaker: Susan Sperring - Technical Director, Symrise
  • Topic: Sensitive Skin – A Comprehensive  Approach to Soothing Inflammation of the Skin

When questioned, 56% of people globally believe they have sensitive skin, with 73% of respondents claiming their skin is more sensitive now than just a few years ago. What exactly is “sensitive skin”? Most consumers would use the terms, dry, red, rashy, stinging and itchy as descriptors, however any don’t understand the role that each of these conditions play in the overall role of sensitive skin.

In this presentation, we will discuss some of the typical causes of sensitive skin and different pathways to sooth the skin, based on the type of inflammation.  In addition, we will take a deeper look into the effect of an unbalanced microbiome and its overall effect on skin’s sensitivity.

Dinner Hour

  • Speaker: Valerie George - Executive Vice President, Research & Development, John Paul Mitchell Systems
  • Topic: The Science of Hair Color, Blonding, and Hair Repair

The science of hair color and blonding are performed on many and understood by few. Learn the fundamentals of what chemical reactions are behind hair color and hair lightening from a hair color chemist. We'll review basic hair morphology, what occurs on the hair fiber during the coloring or lightening process, what ingredients make up hair color and lightener, and how to formulate hair care products to repair the hair fiber when the damage is done.
