Ask the Experts

By Tom Branna, VP/Editorial Director | September 14, 2012

When you’ve got questions and you want answers, you turn to experts. We did just that in this edition of Beauty I&O, with insight from some of the leading medical and regulatory authorities in the industry. Inside, you’ll find articles on an array of topics that make the link between proper nutrition and beauty stronger than ever.

It’s one thing to read answers from industry experts. This month, the staffs of Happi and Nutraceuticals World are giving you the chance to meet the anti-aging experts and ask them the questions you want answers to by attending our Anti-Aging Conference & Tabletop Exhibition, which will be held September 18 & 19, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency, New Brunswick, NJ.
This two-day event features presentations by leading dermatologists, formulators and regulators in the field. To register and to get all your questions answered, visit: http://conference.happi.com

Conference speakers will include dermatologists such as Nicholas Perricone, Jeanine B. Downie, Jennifer Linder and Andrew Alexis. In addition, the Anti-Aging Conference & Tabletop Exhibition will showcase some of the leading technology and services from more than 50 industry suppliers. To learn more about the conference and exhibition.

If you can’t make it to New Jersey this month, you can still find out more about the link between nutrition and skin health by reading Doctors’ Orders. Nearly all the derms we spoke with agreed that nutrition plays a key role in healthy skin, and they provided guidance on how to achieve it.
This edition of Beauty I&O also tackles the definitions that abound in the personal care and nutrition sectors. Attorney Eric Lindstrom notes that there is no consensus on the definition of natural and provides insights on how to overcome this and other hurdles in his article, “Navigating the ‘Natural’ Landscape”.

Starting on p. 30, find out which cosmeceutical marketers are using antioxidant vitamins, minerals and other plant-based ingredients to give their formulas an added kick. Read “Cosmeceuticals & Antioxidants: Perfect Together,” by David Sprinkle of Packaged Facts.

Finally, if you want to find out what smart marketers are doing to capitalize on consumers’ desire for all things natural, read “Natural Personal Care Trends,” by Darrin Duber-Smith and Mason Rubin.

Remember, we’d love to see you at our Anti-Aging Conference & Tabletop Exhibition, Sept. 18 & 19 at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick, NJ. But if you can’t make it, reading this edition of Beauty I&O may just be the next best thing to being there.
