Amorepacific hosts inaugural beauty research symposium

Amorepacific has hosted its first ever New Beauty Research Initiative (NBRI) Symposium at its research and innovation centre in Yongin, Korea.

The K-Beauty giant announced the findings of its skin ageing research in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Medicine in the United States.

Professor Sewon Kang of the Department of Dermatology at JHU presented Research Trend in Skin Aging, introducing the current trends in skin ageing research and shared the progress and future direction of studies conducted through the NBRI programme.

Professor Anna Chien from the same department discussed Evaluation of Epigenetic Changes Related to Skin Aging, presenting a case study from NBRI's epigenetics research.

This study, which was shared at the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) in Texas last month, confirmed the effectiveness of BioGF1K and camellia extract in regulating photoageing epigenetic changes.

Dr. A-young Kim from Amorepacific R&I Centre shared a case study, Impact of Ginsenomics™ on Accelerated Skin Aging and Aging-Related Skin Regeneration, focusing on using ginsenomics to control skin inflammation and ageing.

Professor Martin Alphonse from the Dermatology Department at JHU presented Effect of NBRI Reagents on Immune Cells and Their Role in Regulating Immunometabolic Responses to PM2.5 Exposure in PBMCs, highlighting research on the role of skin immune cells and the discovery of control substances.

Dr. Sunyoung Park from Amorepacific R&I Centre presented A senotherapeutic ingredient, Senomune™, ameliorates skin aging-associated phenotypes, using Amorepacific's proprietary 30-year-old green tea root extract to regulate cell breakdown activity in aged skin.

Byung-fhy Suh, CTO at Amorepacific R&I Centre, said: “It has been truly gratifying to share our findings on skin ageing with esteemed scholars worldwide via the NBRI programme.

“Amorepacific is committed to leveraging these insights to develop superior products and enhance the health and beauty of customers around the globe.”

In December 2022, Amorepacific launched the New Beauty Research Initiative (NBRI), a collaborative research venture with JHU.

This programme has facilitated a multidisciplinary approach to studying skin ageing, underscoring a commitment to advancing our understanding in this area.
