International Meeting on Plasma Cosmetic Science

The 1st International Meeting on Plasma Cosmetic Science (IMPCS-1) targets the emergence of a new dedicated field of applications of atmospheric pressure plasmas in biology in close connection with cosmetic industry needs.

This international conference is organised in the framework of the ARD 2020 Cosmetosciences Programme.


  • Tissue biology (tissue for Cosmetics primarily include skin, nails, hairs, external mucosa)
  • Translation from plasma medicine achievements to Cosmetics
  • Plasma-targeted cosmetic/aesthetics effects
  • Tissue models (from in vitro to explants) relevant for plasma delivery studies in Cosmetics
  • Safety, toxicity, regulation in Cosmetics
  • Plasma sources and diagnostics for Cosmetics
  • Market, needs, trends in Cosmetics
  • Plasma-assisted production of cosmetic products and packaging

Main objectives

  • To favor open exchanges amongst plasma scientists, skin biologists, cosmetic industry experts
  • To reach a consensus on the definition of the “plasma cosmetic science”


Besides informal exchanges and social events, the meeting will integrate:

  • Invited and selected oral contributions
  • Two panel discussions on plasma devices and plasma cosmetics
  • Poster pitches and sessions.


IMPCS-1 This event is sponsored by Le Studium Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies through the Plasma Cosmetic Consortium including: 



Hôtel Dupanloup : 1, rue Dupanloup - 45000 ORLEANS - FR

The conference venue is unique. Located right next to the Orléans’ cathedral, the episcopal palace of Orléans, built between 1635 and 1641, locally known as the Hôtel Dupanloup, is a classical French building which served until 1905 of residence to the bishops of Orléans.  Since 2014, the renewed palace hosts the International University Center for Research and Le Studium Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies.

Participants will be welcomed in this exceptional surrounding, blending Middle Age and Renaissance cultures with modern design and will have the opportunity to discover French cuisine and wines.
