Skin Product Adverse Effects: Causes and Prevention

  November 09, 2010  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
January 13, 2011 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend
This online training was especially developed for professional individuals who work in:

  • Topically applied product development in Pharmaceutics, 
    Cosmetics and Personal care
  • The dermatology community and related industries
  • Hospitals that work on topical chemicals exposure
  • Regulatory institutions that work on dermal exposure

The Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic and Personal Care industries face challenges of developing topically applied formulations that present no adverse reactions when applied to skin. This 90-minute accredited training is designed to explain the different reactions possible, their causes, biochemistry and prevention.

Module 1:
  • Definitions
    – Primary irritation
    – Sensitization
    – Various types of inflammation
    – Photo-toxicity

  • Triggers:
    – Genetic and immune related
    – Contact
    – Drugs or chemical induction
    – UV exposure

Module 2:
  • Major biochemical paths:
    – Arachidonic acid cascade
    – Mast cells
    – Langerhans cells
    – Additional immune system factors

  • Chronic inflammatory conditions and disease related:
    – Atopic dermatitis
    – Psoriasis
    – Acne
    – Rosacea

Module 3:
  • Transdermal and occlusive systems: challenges and 
    possible solutions

Question and Answer Session


Organized by: CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Dr. Nava Dayan, Skin Care Research Expert

Dr. Nava Dayan earned her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem specializing in skin delivery. She is currently an Associate Adjunct Professor in the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers University, and the R&D Director at Lipo Chemicals Inc. During her 23 years of experience she has specialized in a variety of areas related to skin treatment:

  • The research and understanding of the interaction between topically applied compounds and
    the skin
  • Findings in skin biochemistry and especially the upper layer of the skin- the stratum 
  • Delivery of active compounds into and through the skin and the development of delivery 
    systems to facilitate transport, improve bio-availability and reduce toxicity
  • Design and development of topically applied formulations
  • Design of clinical studies to substantiate market claims and to assure safety
  • Academic teaching and lecturing
  • Industrial experience in both development of active compounds, delivery systems and 
    finished formulations
  • Skin absorption studies in vivo and in vitro for safety/ efficacy assessment
  • In vitro methodologies for safety assessment of topically applied compounds

Dr. Dayan has received numerous awards of excellence for various papers she has authored. She is the author and coauthor of more than 100 publications including book chapters and was granted 7 patents. She is also the editor of the “Skin Aging Hand Book” published by Elsevier. Dr. Dayan is a member of the Dermatopharmaceutics Focus Group, and the Abstract Review Committee for the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS). She is serves as the Educational Chair of the NYSCC Chapter and on the Scientific Advisory Board of Health Beauty America Expo. Dr. Dayan teaches at Rutgers University and is the Director of a variety of courses at the Center for Professional Advancement.
