At The Estée Lauder Companies, Science Uncovers New Links to Skin and Hair Aging

While most people want solutions to minimize the appearance of skin and hair aging, sorting through the myriad of beauty products claiming to help fight aging can be difficult. But the researchers at The Estée Launder Companies are pioneers in developing technologies that leverage the latest scientific breakthroughs rooted in proven science. The company has a legacy of utilizing multidisciplinary subject matter expertise in biology & physiology, physics, bio-actives & fermentation, as well as an understanding of innate and environmental protection mechanisms.

Recently, The Estée Launder Companies Research & Development (R&D) team continued their long-standing scientific heritage by presenting six posters on new findings in anti-aging skin and hair research at the Society for Investigative Dermatology Annual Meeting.

These research findings link environmental factors, such as pollen and infrared (IR) radiation, and biological processes, such as melatonin receptors, skin micromovements and cellular senescence, to skin and hair aging. Armed with this understanding of the environmental and biological processes that drive skin and hair aging, Estée Lauder R&D can use it to unlock tools to help mitigate them.

“The Estée Lauder Companies R&D is committed to continually bringing new approaches to industry–leading skin and hair research. As leaders in the cosmetic industry with a long-standing scientific heritage, we have been at the forefront of many areas of research including skin and hair structure and architecture, repair and protection, inflammation and reactivity, as well as circadian and other control mechanisms,” said Kurt Schilling, Senior Vice President, Basic Science Research and Advanced Technology, Research & Development, The Estée Lauder Companies.

Luxury Beauty is an art – but it’s also a science that requires understanding and balancing the effects of nature and nurture. Unlocking the emerging science behind beauty and aging is how Estée Lauder is working to develop solutions that deliver proven results both now and into the future.
