SAN FRANCISCO, May 4, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Rodan & Fields, LLC (Rodan + Fields), a leading dermatology-inspired skin care brand, will present two science posters at the 2021 Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) Virtual Meeting, the one of the world’s largest science-based skin care conferences. The work highlighted in the posters, developed by a team of in-house scientists at the Rodan + Fields Berkeley Innovation Center, is a testament to the advancement of research and technology important to two common skin problems: skin damage induced by environment and skin inflammation.
Founded by Stanford– trained dermatologists, Dr. Katie Rodan and dr. Kathy fields, Rodan + Fields is committed to advancing skin health and has deep expertise in harnessing new formulations and techniques to deliver dermatological solutions that deliver clear, healthy-looking skin and visible results to all.
“Investigative dermatology is embedded in the DNA of our brand”, Dr. Sumita butani, Senior Vice-President, Innovation. “We look forward to sharing this research in the hopes of advancing our collective approach to skin care and bringing the highest level of product efficacy to our consumers.”
The Rodan + Fields poster summaries will be available for virtual viewing during the SID 2021 Virtual Meeting from May 3-8 and published in a supplemental edition of the Journal of Investigative Dermatology:
Protection against environmental stress and prevention of inflammation: a new blend of synergistic antioxidants: Rodan + Fields demonstrated that a particular permutation, a combination of three different molecules each targeting different biological mechanisms associated with the attenuation of the effects of reactive oxygen species, provided additional downstream benefits mitigating biomarkers associated with inflammatory (inflammation-induced aging), photoaging and hyperpigmentation caused by environmental oxidative stress. The results support the idea that a multi-mechanistic antioxidant complex can synergistically mitigate environmental-induced skin damage and provide superior protection when included in skin care formulations.
This technology is exploited in the regimes and products newly launched by Rodan + Fields.
A multi-target approach to soothe irritated skin: Using their effective multi-drug therapy approach, Rodan + Fields evaluated a new botanical and vitamin E blend called RF Botanical Soothing Blend for its ability to attenuate reactive intracellular oxygen species (ROS) in dermal fibroblasts humans in culture generated by ultraviolet radiation and urban dust pollution, DU), as well as the downstream effects associated with the propagation of the inflammatory cascade in skin cells generated by UVA rays. The results support the idea that carefully selected skin-soothing ingredients in an optimized combination can effectively alleviate skin irritation and inflammation while protecting against external aggressors.
This technology is exploited in the new regime of Rodan + Fields.
