The book is called ‘Basic Science for Modern Cosmetic Dermatology’ and has 16 chapters, covering all the relevant topics on the border between dermatology and cosmetics.
According to the beauty behemoth, it aims to define the most appropriate preventive measures in the science of Cosmetic Dermatology for the protection of hair and skin.
Michèle Verschoore, medical director of L'Oréal Research and Innovation, says that the objective of the book was to gather the most recent advances in basic science and knowledge in cosmetic dermatology for a better understanding of skin and hair physiology behind pertinent prevention strategies.
“It also served to build and expand our network with dermatologists who are emerging as key influencers and trust for skin care in India, and to exchange scientific expertise with our Indian counterparts," Verschoore says in a statement.
Francois Pradier, director of L’Oreal Research and Innovation (R&I) in India, adds that this reaches an important goal for research at the company, which wants to generate knowledge of the skin and hair of its consumers in India, and he calls this book ‘a good example of this engagement.’
The new launch is also a step to showcase the opportunities for knowledge sharing and research partnerships between Indian and French scientists.
The Minister Counsellor of the French Embassy, Jean-Marc Seré-Charlet, highlighted what he considers as the result of a fruitful partnership between a French company and some of its Indian academic partners.
He also shared the promising perspectives of collaboration in research and development between France and India, between public and private sectors that such initiative brings in.
L'Oreal has also inaugurated a product development centre in Mumbai and a state of the art advanced research centre in Bangalore.
The two centers plan to employ over 100 Indian researchers and scientists from physical chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, biotechnology, chemical engineering, physics and biology.
"These centers in India will build and expand our network with dermatologists who are emerging as key influencers and trust for skincare in India, and to exchange scientific expertise with our Indian counterparts," Verschoore adds.
