Practical applications of antioxidants in cosmetic industry
Dietary Supplements in Middle East
Antioxidants and Oxidative Stress in Health & Medicine
On the first part, the scientific committee will allocate time to discuss about oxidative stress and chronic diseases. We will present the recent advances and discuss how to decrease and modulate oxidative stress related diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, infertility…

A debate will be organized on the strategic theme: Natural vs synthetic antioxidants: bioavailability, toxicity and impact on gut microbiota.
A special session is dedicated to the valorization of natural sources of antioxidants, industrial byproducts as well as functional ingredients in the Middle East.
Practical Applications of Antioxidants in Cosmetic Industries
During this session we will discuss about the new trends in scientific research regarding the antioxidants in the cosmetic field. As for example:
Antioxidant strategies to delay skin ageing
Targeting skin mitochondria: A promising strategy
How to increase skin antioxidant defense system?
Antioxidants to treat dermatologic disorders
Antioxidant and skin bioavailability: Recent advances and future vision
Dietary Supplements in the Middle East
Many antioxidants are used in many dietary supplements formulations to prevent diseases. The aim of session is to discuss about the recent advances, clinical studies, regulation and marketing of antioxidants in dietary supplements.
The status and regulation of dietary supplements in Europe is completely different than in Middle East.
A round table discussion will be organized to discuss and how to harmonize the European and Middle East regulation?
Moreover, we will discuss the role of local institutions to setup a guideline to give credibility to the market of food and dietary supplements.
