66 NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2016 | Med Esthetics May 2000 by Francesca Tenconi. This past June, the CSDF hosted 100 children in Livermore, California, for a week of various summer camp activities. This year's theme was "CSDF Olympics," and Cetaphil invited U.S. paralympic athlete, Megan Absten, for a surprise visit to the camp, where she kicked off the games and spoke to the children about her journey of achievement in the face of adversity. Campers also enjoyed various events throughout the week, including the annual prom night, talent show and movie night, plus Cetaphil-sponsored activities such as a bean bag toss and a prize wheel, where campers spun to win assorted Cetaphil merchandise, products and candy. Galderma sent the highest number of volunteers to date, including Cetaphil rep- resentatives who were all on site to help staff where needed. "I am beyond grateful for the support that the CSDF has received from Galderma and Cetaphil over the last fi ve years. Our partnership is a special one, where together we are able to touch the lives of so many children affected by chronic skin diseases," said Tenconi. "We're so fortunate to have sponsors like Galderma and Cetaphil to help us create a place where these children can feel comfortable in their own skin and experience the joys of summer camp like other kids their age." MODIFACE LAUNCHES AI-BASED SKIN SIMULATION VIDEO TECHNOLOGY ModiFace, a skin analysis and simulation software provider, launched its latest Skin AI technology—developed to detect skin concerns and simulate changes in the skin—at the IEEE International Workshop of Multimedia Signal Processing in Septem- ber 2016. The company currently offers ModiFace Mirror, which allows users to try different shades of cosmetics through photo-realis- tic, 3D makeup and skin simulation videos. Skin AI, created with the help of a panel of dermatologists, utilizes an artifi cial intel- ligence (AI)-based video editing technology that detects skin concerns such as rosacea, dark spots, discoloration, dryness, and fi ne lines and wrinkles, and then simulates precise changes that can be achieved. Skincare brands can use the technology as either an app or a web-based program to help users visualize skincare concerns and potential solutions. For more informa- tion, visit MYBODY IS NOW GLOWBIOTICS MD Mybody Probiotic Skincare has re-branded and renamed its probiotic skincare line (which combines probiotics with targeted bio-actives to address skin concerns includ- ing premature aging, skin sensitivity, acne and hyperpigmentation). The line is now known as GLOWBIOTICS MD. The decision to make the change came about after the company's successful launch of its GLOWBIOTICS line featur- ing Probiotic Instant Resurfacing Pads and Probiotic HydraGlow Cream Oil. "It was our best launch in the history of the com- pany, and I knew we were on to something that both doctors and patients would be excited about. We realized the name mybody didn't properly refl ect what our cutting-edge skincare products can do for your skin. As a pioneer of medical-grade topical probiotic solutions, we wanted our name to accurately represent our unique formulas and complexes that were created specifi cally to address and improve a vari- ety of skin concerns that result in a glow- ing, youthful complexion," said Christine Watson, founder and CEO of GLOWBI- OTICS MD. "We feel as though our new name now accurately represents what our probiotic formulas do." Physicians and their patients can still fi nd their favorite products from the brand, as the change will be in name and packaging only—formulations will remain the same. The product line is cruelty-free and does not contain phthalates, sulfates, FD&C dyes, parabens or mineral oil.
