09:15 - 10:05     Brief Overview of Photopollution in Brazil
Prof. Dr. Marcelo de Paula Correa, Deputy Director of the Natural Resources Institute of Itajubá Federal University (UNIFEI)

The high levels of UV radiation, typical of a tropical country like Brazil, combined with the pollution of large urban centers, offer a high potential risk to human health, mainly to the skin and the hair. The lecture presents the results of recent measurements conducted in the country, and discusses the possible risks of photopollution to the Brazilian population.

10:05 - 10:55     Impact of pollution on the skin
Flávia Addor, Technical Director of MEDCIN

The interaction of atmospheric pollution with human beings has proved much more negative than was first thought. In addition to the toll it takes on the respiratory tract, recent studies point to the potential damage caused by its impact on the skin, as evidenced by aging, skin spots and acne. 

10:55 - 11:15     Coffee break

11:15 - 11:50     New market niches and their technological impact
Sérgio Gonçalves, Chemyunion International Marketing and Business Director

Market niches have always represented great opportunities, since they have given rise to segments from which great markets have emerged. We will present a view of the new market niches that are cropping up, and examine how promising they are as potential innovations to the CT&F Industry.

11:50 - 12:25     The future of antiaging in skincare
Samuel Guerra, Director of Allergisa

The future of antiaging is currently being reshaped in regard to the safety and efficiency of the active ingredients for use in the world of cosmetics, ultimately allowing truly effective products to be developed. 

12:25 - 13:00     Implications of regulatory concerns on CT&F industrial innovation
Ariadne Tramontina Morais, Johnson & Johnson Regulatory Affairs Brazil

Globally, manufacturers of Cosmetics, Toiletries and Fragrances in a great many countries must follow specific rules of production and control. However, unlike the United States and Europe, some countries, including Brazil, have adopted an additional rule of gaining previous authorization from the Brazilian Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) to place products on the market. This step taken prior to product marketing involves a detailed evaluation from a technical folder that includes reports on all product features, clinical safety and efficiency tests, quality and stability control results, and image of the label to be marketed.

The results of the ANVISA evaluation take time to be processed—from about 6 months for approval of a new product to about 8 months for changes in labeling or formulas—but manufacturers must wait until they come out. Post-market control, including total post-launch product monitoring, and the imposing of fines in the event of any irregularity, adds even greater benefits not only to the consumer, but also to the industries, by increasing the interest in the CT&F industry, and thus driving speedy development and promoting greater opportunities in research and innovations.
