How far can cosmetic materials evolve through biomonitoring?


A panel discussion, "Beauty, Health and Science - How far can cosmetic materials evolve through biomonitoring?


Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in Osaka 2022

The standard of beauty shifts with the transition of values considered important at the time, such as wealth, power, and vitality. As values become more diverse, the sense of beauty and the values demanded of the cosmetics that support it are also becoming more diverse. In addition to the conventional pursuit of "beauty of form" such as whitening and smoothness of skin, health benefits and environmental compatibility of materials have also become important factors. In this context, what should the development of cosmetic materials aim for? In this session, we will consider how people perceive beauty and how the surrounding objects and environment affect the body from the viewpoints of brain science, medical methods, and psychology. From there, we will discuss how cosmetic materials that support human beauty and health should be developed in the future.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, startups, and large companies from a variety of perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session. For more information,Conference Websitefor more information.

*The event will be held after taking measures against new coronavirus infection on the day of the event.
