Skin Microbiome Industry Summit

London, United Kingdom

Note: This event was originally planned for 17-18 June in London, UK and has now been rescheduled

New date: 9-10 September

Skin microbiome products have been gaining more momentum in the last few years with more brands starting to develop products, and personal care giants either starting to develop their own product or investing in start-ups focusing on these. It is a very exciting time for companies looking into this at the moment, figuring out not only product development & formulation but also marketing strategy to raise more attention to this type of products. Despite huge popularity and early success stories, there is still a need to learn more on topics such as: defining the skin microbiome, formulating products, cosmetics & pharma claims, regulation for novel products, latest advances in terms of mapping & profiling technologies, as well as product testing.

Our Skin Microbiome Industry Summit, taking place on the 9th & 10th September 2020 in London, will bring together the key actors of the industry to help the industry learn from one another, work together to further grow and create new business opportunities.

During the 2 days conference, the participants will enjoy the various case studies presentations, panel discussion, Q&As and networking breaks to get the industry to thrive together.

Join us in London for a highly interactive & informative conference, whilst enjoying the networking opportunities with your peers.
