L’Oréal unlocks key to skin renewal; Brazilian D’Or Institute and L’Oréal R&I develop responsive human neurons

A collaborative project spanning five years between scientists from the D’Or Institute for Research & Education and L’Oréal R&I has published its ground-breaking discovery in Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience.

The team, in partnership with UFRJ, UNicamp and Embrapa, has succeeded in generating human neurons responsive to sensorial stimuli in a laboratory. The project confirmed the key role neurons play on sustaining skin renewal.

“The outcome of this exciting collaboration with our partners in Brazil will allow us on the one hand to deepen our understanding of one key component of the skin physiology that was hard to grasp due to the lack of availability of such cells, and on the other hand to develop reconstructed human skin with enhanced neuro-inflammation predictivity and ultimately the next beauty products for sensitive and aged skin,” said Charbel Bouez, head of advanced research, L’Oréal R&I America.
