Katerina Steventon (Independent Skincare Consultancy Ltd and FaceWorkshops)  
Personalisation in a Clinical Environment
Every face has individual facial structures that relate to the skin as well as the skeleton, facial muscles and the vascular and lymphatic systems. The facial tissues represent a dynamic system, influenced by health and lifestyle, responding to daily and monthly rhythms and ageing. The skincare industry approaches customization on a macro level (skin type and concern, age groups) or micro-level (gene-analysis based skincare) but in absence of large personal spending, clinically relevant solutions lie in understanding of individuals’ facial zones, their changes in time and targeted treatments. Dr Steventon will discuss new research behind skin types, how to work with facial maps of biophysical parameters and atlases of skin ageing in a clinical practice and what technologies/ingredients work best in personalized skincare programmes to achieve a clinical benefit for the consumer and commercial benefit for the industry.

Personalization: Where are we now and where is it heading?
Personalization has become a highly influential trend across the consumer landscape, and will only become more entrenched as individualistic consumers become more, knowledgeable and demanding when making their product choices. This presentation will explore Personalization in the context of today’s consumer. Understanding the underlying motivations and demands for more tailored, “right‐for‐me” products is essential to successfully leverage this trend through innovation. This presentation will explore the key drivers behind this trend and the innovation landscape. This will include examples from the beauty sector but also across the wider FMCG space as crosscategory learnings can inspire innovation in new sectors. Finally this presentation will look to understand the future of Personalization, how the trend is expected to develop, and the opportunities it presents to brands in future.
