From September 28th to 30th, 2017, the Skintifique team was at the 2017 GERDA which took place in Marseille, France. It was a great opportunity for us to meet and discuss with dermatologists present at this congress.
Skintifique at the GERDA
For its participation at the GERDA (the main master class for French-speaking Dermatologists and Allergists), Skintifique presented one of its skincare products specially designed to fight against metal irritants: the Protective Cream HPS. Thanks to an innovative and patented technology, it is the world’s first cream able to protect the skin against metals such as Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt, to which around 10% of the world’s population is allergic. This technology is called Capturifique. Similar to UV protection, this technology captures common irritant and allergens at the surface of the skin and prevents them from entering, or re-entering the skin.

We also presented to dermatologists the results of a recent clinical study which shows the efficiency of Skintifique’s Protective Cream HPS and Hydrating Gel Plus HS on dyshidrotic eczema. These results were also presented at the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) in Helsinki, Finland. You can find the poster presented here.
At this Congress, Doctors gave us some patient’s feedbacks which were very positive. The Protective Cream HPS have been adopted by thousands of people to deal with their dermatitis caused by contact with objects containing metals, be it in daily life (costume jewelry, coins, watches, computers, tablets, mobile phone, belts and leather accessories) or professional life objects for hairdressers, health professionals, cashiers or construction workers.
This participation at the GERDA was again a success and we will certainly be present next year in Dijon for the next Congress.
