person’s skin is different, and yet all skin does some truly remarkable things:
it protects the body, assists with breathing, regulates body temperature, and
generates substances that are important for both it and the rest of the body.
And the skin is an unrivaled sensory organ. Which are all good reasons to take
care of it and protect it. Furthermore, human skin is also the best teacher for
Beiersdorf research – its biology continually offers new starting points for
the development of innovative ingredients and products.
Beiersdorf’s research center in Hamburg, a multidisciplinary team of human,
cell, and molecular biologists, immunologists, and biochemists unlock new
processes in the depths of human skin each and every day. In doing so, they
look very closely – using electron microscopes and with biochemical, molecular
biological, and cell dynamic procedures. They search for new ingredients that
protect, support, or promote the biological processes in the skin’s cells in a
natural way. As a component of our products, these ingredients later help
vitalize the skin and optimize its functions.
group of physicists and bioengineers support Beiersdorf’s skin researchers in
their work, for example measuring test subjects’ skin characteristics using the
latest biophysical methods with regard to wrinkles, elasticity, thickness, and
moisture. This is how the company ultimately demonstrates that Beiersdorf’s
innovative skin care products have a positive effect on the complexion and
strengthen the skin’s structure. Because that is the mission of Beiersdorf
research – to develop customized products that are carefully formulated,
painstakingly tested, and naturally effective.
