Celebrating P&G Research Excellence with the Insights & Innovations Webinar Series

APRIL 2024

As part of P&G’s continued commitment to R&D excellence, we are pleased to introduce the P&G Insights & Innovations Webinar Series. Developed in collaboration with dermatologists and P&G researchers, the series is designed to provide an in-depth review of the clinical research behind our P&G Dermatology brands.

The webinars explore various disease states, such as seborrheic dermatitis (SD), sweat and whole body odor, and pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB), providing participants guidance for diagnosis, management, and counseling best practices.

“Advancing research in skin, scalp, and personal care is crucial for optimizing patient treatment. P&G has been a pioneer in these fields for decades, collaborating closely with dermatologists and other healthcare providers to better understand what patients need,” said Rolanda Wilkerson, PhD, Senior Research Fellow at P&G. “These webinars raise awareness about new insights in skin, scalp, hair, and body care research, and also facilitate stronger partnerships with dermatologists, allowing for the practical application of new dermatologic solutions in ongoing patient care.”

Join us for an engaging learning opportunity at one of our following events:
