Title   The sweat gland as a breakthrough target for anti-aging skin care

Discovery of novel skin aging mechanism: “dermal cavitation”

Presenter Tomonobu Ezure, Ph.D. Senior Scientist, Shiseido Life Science
Research Center

Shiseido had earlier discovered the cavitation of the dermal layer
and that people with more advanced “cavitation of the dermal
layer” experience facial sagging to a greater extent, however, the
cause remained unclear. This time, the company was the first in
the world to find out that the shrinkage of sweat glands, which
produce sweat, is significant in the area with the cavitation of
the dermal layer. Shiseido now aims to apply these findings,
clarifying that the shrinkage of sweat glands plays a key role in
cavitation of the dermal layer, to the development of new skin
care products.
