Speaking about the opportunity, Dr. Steventon said: "Skincare has a role beyond the daily functionality of cleansing and moisturising in caring for consumer wellbeing. Sensory experience of product application should be underpinned by the biology of skin touch to encourage compliance.


"I will besharing my natural touch-based therapy experience in the clinic and substantiating this with efficacy on the skin and brain."


Organised by Summit Events, the international meeting takes place at London'sRoyal College of General Practitioners and isa forum for in-depth presentations and discussions on the scientific, regulatory and marketing issues affecting the rapidly developing anti-ageing skin care sector.Other speakers include Dr Frédéric Flament, Research and Innovation, L'Oréal Paris, France (Mapping skin ageing); Dr Bianca McCarthy, University of Sydney, Australia (Vitamin D for healthy skin) and Prof Paul Matts, Proctor and Gamble, UK (Healthy skin and Ageing skin).

Before establishing independent skincare consultancy FaceWorkshops in 2009, Dr. Steventon's experience spanned several years and continents - from prestigious skincare brand, La Prairie in her native Czech Republic to Shiseido in Japan and Smith and Nephew wound healing in Hull.


Dr. Steventon uses her PhD in skin science combined with her professional facial therapy training to provide clients with a bespoke package of scientifically validated products combined with facial therapies at her salon in the heart of the historic town of Beverley in East Yorkshire.
