Cosmetotest Symposium

on Preclinical and Clinical Tests for Dermocosmetics

24-25-26 May 2023

SEPR – 46 Pr Rochaix – Lyon 69003 – France




Cosmetotest 2023 opens up to imaging and biometrology and addresses new themes.

For its second edition, which will take place from May 24 to 26, 2023, the symposium dedicated to cosmetic testing plans an additional day on imaging and biometrology in association with the SF2iC*. 55 lectures and presentations will address new topics during these 3 days, at SEPR in Lyon, France.

Organised by SKINOBS and COSMET’IN LYON in partnership with SFI2C and DIIP and with the support of the AURA region and the Cosmebooste project, COSMETOTEST allows cosmeticians from all over the world to listen to academic and applied conferences and interact with participants, to meet testing partners, exhibitors, CROs or instrumentation manufacturers and to participate in equipment demonstrations.
250 participants, 46 speakers and 30 exhibitors contributed to the success of the first edition of COSMETOTEST, on 24 and 25 May 2022, unanimously recognised by specialists in the profession for its quality and its excellent technological and scientific level of expertise.
In 2023, the SF2iC* will shed a particular light on facial exploration tools and new home routines, whether they be skin measurement devices or cosmetic care devices, at home.

During these 3 days, 55 conferences and presentations will address new and innovative themes on clinical tests – Well-aging and mature skin, Hair and nail growth and regeneration, Evaluation of acne-prone skin – and on preclinical tests – Place of organoids, spheroids and organ-on-chip in dermocosmetics, Evaluation of endocrine disruptors, Parallel in-vitro and in-vivo tests. Also to be noted is the intervention of a Social Beauty Therapist on the role of a social beautician in the care and well-being of vulnerable people.

Two convivial highlights are planned for the evening: SF2iC* will celebrate its twentieth anniversary at a Gala on Wednesday 24 May and a cocktail party will bring together the participants on Thursday 25 May.
