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.”
