Pollution, blue light and skin microbiota are real buzz words in the cosmetic industry. Many companies are already advertising these new claims, but there is no standardized method for their substantiation.

CIDP has recently set up innovative equipment and study protocols. The Controlled Pollution Exposure System can dose specific pollutants at controlled concentration on the skin and has helped to identify specific biomarkers to objectively substantiate the anti-pollution claim. Calibrated Blue Light sources of different wavelengths have also been developed to substantiate the Blue Light Protection claim. CIDP is also investigating the effect of different air pollutants on skin microbiota.
