“Surprise” FREE Education Day Members of the SCC Ontario chapter were delighted to be greeted with the news upon arriving at this years Education Day that the event was FREE. That’s right if you were a member we did NOT take your money! As a small gesture the Ontario SCC board decided to give back to their loyal members for their years of involvement and participation! The attendance was excellent as many turned out for a full day event with many topics covered. Nava Dayan, PhD spoke on  the multifaceted topic of “Claim Substantiation andAging Seminar”. With the skin care industry striving to produce safer products, it should also further stream its scientific resources towards testing products for their activity on the skin and provide fair translation into claims. There is growing interest in claims associated with prevention and affecting skin aging and its clinical manifestation. The seminar was tailored to provide key aspects in the establishment of best practice to be applied in experimental design and tie it into the regulatory framework rationale. Nava provided examples for skin aging claims as well as correlation to current scientific knowledge in skin aging key biochemical cascades. Nava Dayan, PhD, is founder and president of a skin science and research consultancy serving the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and personal care industries. Dr. Dayan’s 24 years of experience in the greater skin care segment have yielded more than 150 publication credits in numerous industry- respected journals, four books, as well as an In-Cosmetics Gold Award for innovation and commensurate recognition from the NYSCC and the CRS for excellence. nava.dayan@verizon.net
