Course description

View Course Outline

Skin care products are designed to modify the surface of the skin for both aesthetic and protective purposes, and changes to the skin’s environment can have a positive impact on its biochemical properties. Innovative concepts and products can be developed through an understanding of gene expression and epigenetics.

In this 60-minute accredited training, participants will learn about the human genome, the structure and function of genes, and how they are expressed, with a focus on constitutive and inducible genes.
The training will also cover the expression “products” of genes, such as stress proteins, cytokines, receptors, and enzymes, and their involvement in the inflammatory process. The last module will concentrate on the impact of gene expression control on biorhythms and gender-linked differences in skin, as well as providing examples of the epigenetic control of skin properties.

Upon completion of this training, you will be able to:

  • Explain the basics of skin structure, the epidermal layers and some of their main functions
  • List and describe the different cells in the epidermis
  • Illustrate two of the major skin functions and their biochemical cascade: interface and melanogenesis
