The Beauty of Age Research Project

The Beauty of Age Research Project

Are you a woman over sixty, interested in skincare and the management of the effects of skin ageing?

The Centre for Fashion Science at London College of Fashion is currently researching the beauty of age, an increasingly important aspect of contemporary culture.

The Centre is looking for female volunteers aged sixty and over. Researchers are interested in hearing from two major groups of women, whose skincare regimes involve either:

•   some form of medical intervention (e.g. regular use of prescribed topical Vitamin A products, dermatological beauty treatments ranging from deep peels to skin fillers and botox, any form of facial cosmetic surgery, HRT)


•  other forms of skincare, not requiring involvement of medical professionals (e.g. use of various skin products including cosmeceuticals, facial treatments, hair removal, massage)

The project is non-commercial and focused on bringing positive attention to age and to the beauty of age. All your personal data will be kept in strict confidence. Research will be based in the Cosmetic Science laboratories at Oxford Circus. Your participation in the project  would require approximately two days in late March/early April 2011. To thank you, we will arrange a professional make-up and photography session for you at the end of your second day with us

For further information on what participation will involve, issues of confidentiality or any other questions, please contact Jo Sait on 020 7514 2097, by letter at London College of Fashion, 20 John Prince’s Street, London, W1G 0BJ or by email at
