Yan Liu won the 2019 Maison G de Navarre young scientist prize with his essay ‘The Human Skin Microbiome: A New Way to Beauty.’

The International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC) has awarded its 2019 Maison G de Navarre young scientist prize to Yan Liu of China’s Shanghai Pechoin Daily Chemical Company Ltd.

Yan Liu won the prize with his essay The Human Skin Microbiome: A New Way to Beauty, a detailed study on how this new field of research could disrupt and inspire the cosmetics industry. “The microbial homeostasis is crucial to the skin health and wellness - key attributes pursuit by our consumers today. Efforts are already made to modulate the skin microbiome through cosmetics, among which genetic engineered microorganisms are highly likely to disrupt the cosmetic industry in the future,” wrote Yan Liu, in his essay’s conclusion.

Yan Liu has won a fully paid trip to the 2019 IFSCC Conference, which will take place in Milan, Italy from September 30 to October 2, 2019.

I was thrilled to learn that I won this prestigious prize. I am pleased and honored to accept this award! IFSCC is the top-class organization for cosmetics,” commented Yan Liu. “I have always worked in the cosmetic industry, most of time in R&D. Now at Pechoin R&D, I focus on exploring advanced technologies and designing new products to fulfil consumer desires and unmet needs. IFSCC is a major source of inspiration for my work,” he added.
