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.
