What beauty companies will have a presence on the San Diego Convention Center floor? Better sit down, here’s just a partial list of exhibitors:
• Alps South-Alps Cosmetics
• AnteAGE MD
• Collagen PIN
• Coola Suncare
• Derma Faith
• DP Derm
• Image Skin Care
• Laoboratories Filorga
• Laboratorios Genove
• LC Cell
• LiftLab Skin Regeneration
• Miracle Fruit Oil
• NAOS/Laboratoire Bioderma
• OCuSoft Skin Care
• Procter &Gamble
• Scientist Skinlab
Forward thinking suppliers to the cosmetics industry, including Hilltop Research, Lipotec and Silab, have stands at AAD, too.
Also in the exhibition hall, industry expert sessions give exhibiting companies the opportunity to present new research findings on products, detail products, conduct demonstrations and highlight new products.
Some of the presenting companies and their topics include;
• Pfizer, Spotlight on Mild-to-Moderate Atopic Dermatitis: An Update on a Steroid-Free Topical Prescription Therapy
• Celgene Corporation, Moving Beyond Topicals: Perspectives on Systemic Treatment for Psoriasis
• Allergan, The importance of facial erythema of rosacea
Obviously, these presentations are devoted to skin disorders that call for prescriptions, but formulators can learn plenty about these diseases that afflict so many consumers who ultimately purchase skin care products, too.
Plus there are dozens of poster presentations on a wide range of topics, including acne, dermatitis, hair and nail disorders, melanoma, pigmented lesions, non-melanoma skin cancers, psoriasis and many other disorders that are of interest to the cosmtics industry.
Of course, in any scientific society, science is the main draw for many attendees. Dermatologists will have a chance to choose from an array of scientific sessions, plus get entertained by suppliers when the tradeshow closes—and still make it back to their practices by Wednesday!
