Stimulating Skin’s Own Natural Defense Against Free Radicals

Our skin continually faces environmental challenges and stress. Without its regenerative capacities and its intrinsic defense mechanisms, our skin would accumulate damage, resulting in e.g. premature aging. Skin cells possess regenerative defense mechanisms against UV stress, intercepting harmful free radicals before they can cause damage. Scientists from Beiersdorf′s Front End Innovation in cooperation with Eucerin have now found a way to enhance this protective capacity.

Nobel Prize Awarded to Beiersdorf Cooperation Partner

This year’s announcement of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry was especially interesting for Beiersdorf Research & Development because the highest prize in science honored a cooperation partner of Beiersdorf. Dr. Stefan Hell, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in G?ttingen, together with Eric Betzig and William Moerner from the U.S., was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his groundbreaking invention of STED Microscopy. With the so-called GSDIM Technology, Dr. Frank Fischer, Head of the Beiersdorf Research Microscopy Lab, uses an advancement of the method of the German Nobel Prize winner. GSDIM stands for “Ground State Depletion Individual Molecule Return Microscopy.” The GSDIM technology is supported by the Federal Ministry for Education as part of the joint research project “GSDIM Widefield Nanoscopy.”
