Skin Health Alliance invited to present at the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology

1 min read

The Skin Health Alliance will be presenting its scientific paper ‘Ambient humidity and the skin: the impact of air humidity in healthy and diseased states’ at the 13th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology taking place in Athens, Greece in May.

The paper’s authors Professor David Gawkrodger and Nina Goad reviewed international dermatology and medical journals to examine the scientific evidence proving the detrimental effects low humidity has on skin health. There were several key findings including, for example, that low humidity decreases the water content of the stratum corneum, causes increased dry skin scales, aggravate skin texture, reduces elasticity and causes fine wrinkles.

Skin Health Alliance partner Dyson very much levered these findings at its 2015 international launch of the Dyson AM10 Humidifier

The commissioning of the scientific review paper is yet another way the Skin Health Alliance stays current with dermatological research. It also sets it apart from other less well informed consumer groups when it comes to delivering a professionally led accreditation programme for skin products and services.
