Share

Reinforcing its commitment to advancing dermatology for every skin story, Galderma announced today the formation of a global Sensitive Skincare Faculty, which will focus its efforts on helping people with sensitive skin live better lives through focusing on three key pillars of research, innovation and engagement that play a key role in improving the broad understanding and management of sensitive skin. Comprised of 13 experts from across the world, the group will have representation from diverse geographies including China, Brazil, the Philippines, Germany, France, Australia, Italy and the United States (U.S.).

“We want people to feel in control of their skin, and this is especially important for those who have skin conditions that are often misunderstood – like sensitive skin.
We’re delighted to bring together such an esteemed group of experts from around the world who will collaborate to propose and implement research, innovation and educational projects
to advance the science of sensitive skin and bring positive changes to the whole community.”

WALTER GEIGER
CONSUMER CARE GLOBAL BUSINESS UNIT HEAD, GALDERMA

Sensitive skin is a complex and often interconnected condition, requiring personalized care and products specifically designed for it. More than seventy percent of people worldwide diagnose themselves as having sensitive skin, which can negatively impact quality of life and leave them feeling frustrated and looking for better solutions.i There is a need for science-backed guidance and advice on how to identify and care for sensitive skin of all kinds, to help improve the overall quality of sensitive skin.

The Sensitive Skincare Faculty will focus on three core pillars of activities:

  • Research – expanding the understanding of sensitive skin by filling evidence gaps and advancing in emerging areas
  • Innovation – inspiring the development of new solutions to improve diagnosis and care
  • Engagement – enhancing the knowledge of healthcare professionals to shape the future of best practice

In partnership with the Department of Dermatology at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, two grants have been awarded to accelerate the mission of the Sensitive Skincare Faculty. The first will establish a Galderma Sensitive Skin Translational Research Fellowship Program over five years to support medical students interested in expanding their research skill set into sensitive skin. The second project, the Galderma Skin Research Acceleration Fund, will span two years and look specifically at establishing a standard definition of sensitive skin.

“Our goal is to transform the science of sensitive skin into actionable insights and practical advice
that will empower everyone – from consumers and patients to healthcare professionals – to make positive strides forward.
We’re bringing together the latest information backed by science and making it available and accessible to everyone who needs it.”
