CEP Course: Advanced Skin Science
COURSE TITLE: Advanced Skin Science
This Advanced Skin Science course will cover topics in skin biochemistry, biophysics and molecular biology. It is assumed that the student will already have basic knowledge of biochemistry and skin structure, function and physiology. It is designed to bring the Skin Care Scientist up to date on topic. The goal of the course is to bring the student up to date on skin research of importance to the cosmetic industry.
COURSE OUTLINE: Advanced topics on the Epidermis and Stratum Corneum
- The Epidermis
- The Stratum Corneum (SC) Barrier
- Recent Advances in our Understanding of Skin Lipids
- Skin Pigmentation
- Skin Aging and Photo-Aging
- Skin pH and Its Role Maintaining Superior SC Barrier
- The Dermis – and Skin Appendages
