Education Day Review This years SCC Ontario Education Day held on September 22nd was a particularly interesting and thought provoking day! We were pleased to have Vanya Loroch, Ph.,D who is a teacher and trainer in life sciences based in Switzerland. He describes himself as a “hyper- generalist”. In the course of this work, Vanya always focused on trying to understand what lies at the heart of effective science education. His teachings cover a number of domains including medical and non-medical biology, classical and molecular genetics, as well as flavors of biotechnology, drug development, medical information management, and health promotion and prevention. Vanya’s  focus for the day was “Nutrition and Aging” with the presentation topic being “Eat Well and Age Healthy: or is it the other way around? ” The talk was a fast paced, candid and scientifically sound exploration of confirmed and suspected links between nutrition and aging. He discussed the fundamentals of modern biology that explain key mechanisms believed to be responsible for different forms of aging. As well as various hypotheses that explain why aging is inevitable and how it may be delayed. Attention SCC Members:                  College, Seneca College, as part of its Cosmetic Science Graduate Certificate program is urgently seeking opportunities for its students to find a place for the Co- op portion if its program.  If you are interested in helping to shape future cosmetic science employees through offering a paid practical experience component in your organization, please contact them through the information found following this link. Currently there are only a few students available so if you are in a position to help it would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks to those companies who have taken on students in the program!

 Urban Defense Strategies for Pollution Protection Tia Alkazaz   As the number of people living in cities is increasing, there is a growing concern about the  effects of atmospheric pollution on skin health. The harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation and smoking on skin health is well understood, and appropriate skin protection measures have been established to prevent premature skin aging. However, atmospheric pollution is a  relatively newer concern that has the cosmetic industry developing new ingredients, and adapting formulation concepts for skin protection and repair. Air pollution in Asia is at an all-time high due to auto emissions, cigarette and industrial smoke.1 The Environmental  Protection Agency (EPA) is leading the charge against air pollution in the United States, as awareness of the skin damaging effects of pollution is spreading through the Western  hemisphere. Addressing concerns over pollution allows cosmetic brands to leverage the  influence of the expanded consumer awareness into a new market for skin care that works to actively fight against pollution.
