YSL Scientific Advisory Board
SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY BOARD
Together, we develop new knowledge on skin, its reaction to different lifestyles and in turn we identify the best actives for maximum efficacy and tolerance.
MEET THE EXPERTS
Dermatologists, urban skin experts, biologists, together they identified how a hectic urban lifestyle can impact skin and designed the best solutions.
Caroline has worked in the beauty sector for more than a decade and held many technical positions involving formulation and development of skincare. Before joining YSL Beauté, Caroline has deepened her scientific expertise by working on active ingredients for a leading raw material manufacturer. As an international skincare expert, Caroline has helped develop a vast range of skincare formulas, from dermatological products to luxury skincare.
During the last 4 years, Caroline created and managed a scientific advisory board to analyse the effects of urban lifestyle on skin ageing. The result of their work led to creation of the new YSL Beauty skincare range Pure Shots.
“We rely on this the synergy between active ingredients and skin essential elements for the most effective results.”
URBAN SKIN EXPERT
“Overall, urban skin is affected by both environmental and lifestyle factors: air quality, UV rays, urban pollution, stress and fatigue, tiring activities like public transport and a long daily commute, diet, smoking, and more all affect the speed and extent of the skin's ageing.”
OVERWORKED SKIN EXPERT
“We now have proof that the lifestyle of urban women has a direct impact on the biology of their skin cells. This study provides, for the first time in human, evidence that in vivo deregulation of the body clock affects regenerative properties of skin cells.”
Dr THIERRY MICHAUD
“I'm in contact with women everyday and I could tell how their fast life affects their skin. Women don't talk anymore about aging signs, but about how their intense lifestyle shows on their skin. Indeed, living fast overworks your body, and then overworks your skin. Skin is then less able to defend itself against urban agressors.”
