At in-cosmetics Korea 2017, Seokjoo Yoon, Department of Predictive Toxicology Director a the Korea Institute of Toxicology, conducted a presentation on the “Cosmeceutical development – An in-silico approach” during the Marketing Trends & Regulations presentations.
Dr. Yoon is an appointed Professor of human and environmental toxicology at the Korea University of Science and Technology (UST). He is also leading the department of predictive toxicology in order to develop alternatives to lab, animal study and biomarker to name a few.
An in-silico approach to predicting toxicity and efficacy has become increasingly important, in both regulatory aspects (e.g. EU REACH and the Cosmetics Regulation) and new ingredient screening.
Seokjoo Yoon explores in this presentation the advantages to in-silico techniques, including their cost-effectiveness, speed compared with traditional testing, and reduction in animal use.
