Apostolos Pappas, Ph.D. to speak in Stresa, Italy for 1st IPCE Conference

A previous Henry Maso Keynote Award Lecturer for the 2015 Annual Meeting, Apostolos Pappas, Ph.D., will deliver a riveting session on Skin Lipids: Essential Role of Lipids on Skin Health  at the 1st Intercontinental Personal Care Excellence Conference (IPCE) scheduled for June 18-20, 2017 in Stresa, Italy. 

The 1st IPCE Conference is a collaborative event between the SCC and the Italian Society of Chemistry and Cosmetological Sciences (SICC) with the endorsement of the Japanese Society, to open a wide window on the Cosmetic Science & Technology World! Invited speakers will showcase their cutting-edge research on three main personal care disciplines: Makeup, Skin Care and Sun Care. Dr. Pappas’ course will summarize and review the studies, ideas, and research that link lipid metabolism to the largest organ of our body, the skin.  From the fundamental biology of the skin to the major involvement of lipid synthesis and the bioactive lipids in this intriguing organ. All layers of skin will be discussed as well as their relevant lipids from the epidermis to dermis and even to the hypodermis.
