The International Institute for Anti-ageing (iiaa) today announced the opening of a new Skin Health Research Centre. The new centre is part of the strategic expansion of the corporate headquarters in North London.
The state of the art research facility sits alongside new offices, additional training facilities, enlarged warehousing and storage of essential professional products for distribution to over 4,500 salons in the UK and Ireland. Of particular interest is the new temperature controlled fulfilment facility, ensuring best practice and clinical standard fulfilment of the Advanced Nutrition Programme skin health and wellbeing supplements.
The Research Centre for Skin Health is equipped with the gold standard in skin analysis equipment, used in R&D departments of cosmetic and pharmaceutical organisations, independent testing laboratories and in fundamental dermatological research centres worldwide. The equipment in the new Skin Health Research Centre will measure skin hydration, elasticity and Trans-epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) as well as other indispensable parameters for the evaluation of various functions of the skin.
David Alpert, Managing Director of Advanced Nutrition Programme said: “We have launched this specialist skin research centre as further evidence of our commitment to being a leading authority on skin health and anti-ageing. Our business brand is based on values of efficacy and integrity and these new facilities will support our future expansion into new ingredient research to strengthen skin health outcomes.”
Lorraine Perretta, Consultant Nutritionist to the iiaa said “We are very excited by the possibilities of the new iiaa Research Centre for Skin Health. We have already started pre-clinical studies to investigate various targeted nutrient combinations on skin concerns. This investment into world leading technology will help us to significantly accelerate our new product development and open new areas of nutritional innovation to benefit skin health.“
