L’Oréal, the global beauty company, has unveiled new research and innovations in skin health at the prestigious World Congress of Dermatology (WCD) held in Singapore this month. The event gathered top dermatologists, scientists, and researchers to explore the latest advancements in the field.
Vichy, a brand under L’Oréal Dermatological Beauty (LDB), presented a significant study investigating the effects of hormonal variations on women’s skin. Conducted across 20 countries and involving 20,000 participants, the study shed light on the link between hormones and skin health.
According to the findings, 72% of women perceived hormonal variations to negatively impact their overall well-being. Additionally, three out of four participants reported experiencing skin issues during menstrual periods, highlighting the influence of hormonal fluctuations on skin health.
These insights emphasize the need for targeted solutions that address specific skin concerns arising from hormonal changes. L’Oréal is committed to leveraging this research to develop products and services tailored to women experiencing such fluctuations.
“We are delighted to return to the World Congress of Dermatology armed with new insights on global skin concerns to complement the important work of the dermatology community,” said Barbara Lavernos, Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of Research, Innovation and Technology, L’Oréal Groupe. “Thanks to extensive research, innovation and growing investments in tech, together we can help address people’s most pressing skin and hair concerns – from hyperpigmentation to sun protection, acne, dry skin and beyond – enabling more people to enjoy healthier skin and a greater quality of life.”
“Together with the dermatologist community, we are advancing skin health for all people, in their infinite diversity,” said Myriam Cohen-Welgryn, Worldwide President, L’Oréal Dermatological Beauty Division. “By helping increase scientific knowledge, creating new, sustainable products and augmented services, and supporting people in need, we are helping extend access to skin health to ever-more people around the world.”
