YSL Beauté Forever Youth Liberator Serum joins the Berlin Museum of Science & Technology collection

After being closed for renovations for three years, the Berlin-based Sugar Museum has reopened as part of the Deutsches Technikmuseum with an expanded permanent exhibition dedicated to sugars and the central role played by glycans in the realm of life: “Sugars and Beyond! Food - Matter - Energy”.

On this occasion, the Forever Youth Liberator Serum, launched in 2012 by YSL Beauté and YSL.Skinscience [1], illustrates the role of glycans as major constituents of the skin and their decisive role in the skin’s balance. It is the first time that a YSL skincare product joins the collection at a science museum.

The realms of glycobiology offer huge challenges and opportunities. We are seeing the emergence of ground-breaking applications in the sector of living sciences. The importance of glycans as a ’third language’ is now acknowledged and is opening the door to new products and applications, and cosmetics is just one of its application,” explains Professor Peter H. Seeberger, Director of the Biomolecular Systems Department at the Max Planck Institute and member of YSL.Skinscience committee.

30 years ago, when I started working on glycobiology, it was still very early days for this sector. Thanks to tremendous technical progress, it can now be applied to the skin. The latest discoveries are considerable and enable us to open up a new lead in the world of cosmetics. The point is that the youthfulness of skin is now being decoded in a radically different way,” adds Dr. Bruno A. Bernard, L’Oréal Fellow, member of YSL.Skinscience committee.

[1* A committee where experts from the fields of glycobiology and dermatology are invited to work together with skincare specialists from the different entities of L’Oréal Research. YSL Beauté has created this Committee in order to apply the latest glycobiology findings to skin, to engage exclusive scientific collaborations and to communicate the results of its work.

The YSL.Skincience Committee is composed of Professor Peter H. Seeberger (a leading expert in glyco-sciences and Director of the Biomolecular Systems Department at the Max Planck Institute), Dr. Bruno A. Bernard (L’Oréal Fellow), Dr. Julien Laboureau (expert in cellular and molecular biology L’Oréal Research applied to skincare), Dr. Véronique Guillou (Global Director for skincare development L’Oréal Luxe) and Dr. Thierry Michaud (dermatologist, consultant).

US retail: Apocalypse or evolution?

American retail is in freefall, and its sales revenues have been deeply affected by 3,500 stores going out of business, not to mention the difficulties Macy’s, Sears and K-Mart are facing. Unlike the banking sector, the main actors of retail are rapidly restructuring their networks of sales points because of the rising price of (...)
