How can ingestibles and topicals work synergistically to rejuvenate skin? What specific nutrients manipulate critical gene expression for health and beauty? What common substances can regulate cell messenger systems to prevent inflammation and aging? Leading dermatologists, such as Nicholas Perricone, Jeanine Downie, Jennifer Linder and Andrew Alexis, will answer these and many other questions at Happi’s Anti-Aging Conference & Tabletop Exhibition, which will be held Sept. 18 & 19, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, New Brunswick, NJ.
The two-day conference will provide insight into the skin aging process and how to mitigate damage to the skin, an overview of the anti-aging category, expert advice on how to formulate effective anti-aging products, an explanation on the proper use of label claims and advice on how to bring products to market.
