IIAA research facility

The International Institute for Anti-Ageing (IIAA) is opening a new Research Centre for Skin Health as part of the strategic expansion of its headquarters in North London.

The state-of-the-art facility, which will sit alongside the distributor’s new offices and additional training facilities, will measure skin hydration, elasticity and trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), as well as other indispensable parameters for the evaluation of various functions of the skin.

There will also be a temperature controlled fulfilment facility, ensuring best practice and clinical standard fulfilment of the Advanced Nutrition Programme (ANP) skin health and wellbeing supplements, which the company distributes.

“We have launched this specialist skin research centre as further evidence of our commitment to being a leading authority on skin health and anti-ageing,” said David Alpert, managing director of IIAA.  

“Our business brand is based on values of efficacy and integrity and these new facilities will support our future expansion into new ingredient research to strengthen skin health outcomes.”

The centre is equipped with the gold standard in skin analysis equipment, used in research and development (R&D) departments of cosmetic and pharmaceutical organisations, independent testing laboratories and in dermatological research centres worldwide. 

Lorraine Perretta, consultant nutritionist to IIAA, said: “We are very excited by the possibilities of the new Research Centre for Skin Health. We have already started pre-clinical studies to investigate various targeted nutrient combinations on skin concerns.

“This investment into world leading technology will help us to significantly accelerate our new product development and open new areas of nutritional innovation to benefit skin health.” 

The IIAA is the UK and Ireland distributor for pro brands ANP, Environ skincare and Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics.
