Mary Kay will award two $20,000 grants to researchers conducting ground-breaking and ground-breaking studies on skin health or skin conditions, for which eligible applicants can apply until December 9, 2022. Winners will be announced during a virtual special event next March, before of the inaugural meeting of the first conference of the International Society for Research Dermatology, which takes place in May. With this funding, Mary Kay hopes to empower researchers to discover new perspectives and intervention strategies in dermatology.

At the age of 51, Mary Kay presented exciting new discoveriesON ESDR Annual Meeting as part of its ongoing research focused on the biology of skin aging. The team investigated the changes over time that affect the eye, particularly the upper eyelid. Over time, the contours of the upper eyelid began to droop, leading to a drooping or half-closed appearance. Currently, only in-office options have shown significant improvement in the appearance of droopy eyelids. At the annual meeting, Geetha Kalahasti, Chief Scientist, Advanced Research, Clinical and Scientific Accreditation at Mary Kay, shared the results of a clinical study that evaluated the efficacy of a cosmetic formulation containing botanical extracts as a topical solution for the treatment of droopy eyelids. Plant extracts target the three main components that contribute to the effect – the degradation of the dermal matrix, the weakening of the upper eyelid retractor and the movement of fat deposits of the upper eyelid. The findings showed a significant improvement in droopy eyelids and contour, providing a promising home cosmetic solution to the problem of droopy eyes. Two independent board-certified dermatologists evaluated the clinical images and confirmed that the results were conclusive.

“Women are looking for more advanced at-home treatment options, and our advanced research team is addressing that need by designing new products that offer compelling skin benefits.” This is just one of the many ways we meet and exceed consumer expectations,” said Dr. Lucy Gildea, director of innovation, product and science at Mary Kay. “Participating in international conferences like ESDR is one way we share and learn about the latest advances in skin care science to stay relevant in our research efforts, build connections across the industry, and establish Mary Kay as a global leader in skin care science. skin.”

ESDR supports research dermatology with the aim of improving the health of patients suffering from skin diseases. The annual conference of the European Society for Dermatology Research (ESDR) is held in Europe every year in September. The content of the ESDR Annual Meeting included lectures by internationally recognized visiting scientists, oral presentations of peer-reviewed abstracts, cutting-edge skin science lectures, educational symposia on a variety of topics, electronic poster presentations, and interactive workshop-style sessions. With more than 1,100 registered delegates from 51 countries in attendance, the ESDR Annual Meeting attracts scientists from around the world interested in dermatology to learn about the latest discoveries in basic, clinical and translational research.

“On behalf of the ESDR Board of Directors, we would like to thank Mary Kay for her support of ESDR and her generous contribution to ESDR activities. The fundamental goal of our Society is to promote innovative research in research dermatology and to support the activities of researchers in translational skin research. We are honored, grateful and thrilled that Mary Kay is a part of this effort,” said Eli Sprecher, Chair of the ESDR Science Program Committee.
