Nestlé Skin Health has announced that it will open an innovation hub in Shanghai to support healthy ageing. Operational in 2016, the hub – known as a SHIELD (Skin Health Investigation, Education and Longevity Development) centre – will combine different technologies, medications and bio-informatics to help address ageing skin health issues including intense dryness and skin cancer.

The hub will be the first for the company in Asia and its second worldwide.

“We are very enthusiastic about opening our first Asia-based SHIELD center in Shanghai. It will be a hub for developing solutions to meet China’s growing skin health needs and will serve as a platform for collaboration and innovation,” says Humberto Antunes, CEO of Nestlé Skin Health and Chairman of Galderma Pharma. “We will engage with scientists and healthcare professionals to create an environment where medicines and technologies can be combined with bio-informatics to develop preventative, diagnostic and treatment strategies to advance next generation of skin health regimens.”

In 2014, Nestlé Skin Health announced its plan to open a global network of SHIELD centers around the world to meet skin health challenges that result from our 21st century longevity. The first SHIELD center will open in New York City in the fourth quarter of 2015 followed by the Shanghai center in the first quarter of 2016 with other locations planned in the future.
