Rainer Voegeli, Senior Scientist at DSM was awarded at IFSCC 2016!
In cooperation with partners from academia and private enterprise, DSM is increasingly employing computational technologies, including molecular modeling, to accelerate the design and development of revolutionary cosmetic ingredients and concepts. Our research was demonstrated via five posters, two of which drew specific attention from the committee and were placed in the best top ten, out of 312 posters submitted.
The following posters were certified:
Mimicking Molecular Conversation by Modulation of the Plasminogen Serine Protease System in Order to Improve Skin Barrier Function
Computational tools facilitate the design of novel cosmetic ingredients based on a better understanding of molecular interactions within the skin. One such tool was used to illustrate the key features of a dual plasmin / urokinase inhibitor.
Mass Spectrometry Based-Proteomics of Facial Stratum Corneum of Different Ethnic Groups to Reveal Novel Biochemical Pathways Involved in Dry Skin
DSM scientists used mass-spectrometry-based proteomics to reveal novel biochemical pathways, targeting multi-ethnic skin dryness concerns.

Biomechanical Impact of Vitamin Species on Human Stratum Corneum
DSM’s vitamin experts are using state-of-the-art biomechanical models to explore the impact of topical vitamin applications on human stratum corneum.
10-Hydroxystearic Acid – a Bio-Derived Lipid to Counteract Aging Effects on Human Skin
A bio-derived lipid, 10-hydroxystearic acid, could prove a valuable alternative to existing anti-aging treatments. It acts by modulating aging and photo-aging markers.
Skin Aging in Different Ethnicities and Treatment Effects by a Hydrophobically Modified Dipeptide in Caucasians, Asians and Africans
We all age differently. Our scientists discussed the molecular mechanism underlying the activity of a hydrophobically-modified dipeptide that improves both skin texture and pore size – meeting the anti-aging needs of a broader demographic.
