International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Hosts Virtual World Congress 2020

The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) has pivoted from an in-person congress originally scheduled in Panama to a highly interactive and fully engaging virtual congress. The ISHRS Virtual Congress will be held October 17-25, 2020, with in-depth scientific sessions covering a spectrum of the latest topics in hair transplantation.

“In transitioning to a virtual meeting format, we have spread our content over nine days with a well-designed schedule to allow attendees to participate in more sessions and workshops than usual while keeping up with their normal work and home life,” said Bradley R. Wolf, MD, FISHRS, program chair. “The ISHRS World Congress has a strong tradition of hosting the best education from the top minds in the field of hair restoration surgery, and this virtual meeting is no exception.”

One of the meeting highlights will be a hair regenerative symposium featuring several renowned hair researchers. Guest speakers include geneticist Prof. Angela Christiano – recently elected to the National Academy of Sciences – on Hair Follicle Bioengineering using 3D Printing Technology, and Dr Maksim Plikus from the University of California Irvine Stem Cell Research Center on Cell Coordination and Organ Regeneration. Dr Alexey Terskikh, Associate Professor of Neuroscience at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, La Jolla, Calif., will speak on Hair Regeneration using induced pluripotent stem cells derived from dermal papilla cells with a 3D biodegradable scaffold.

Another meeting highlight will focus on the humanistic side of medicine, as the doctor-patient relationship is vital to proper clinical care and better outcomes. Dr Danielle Ofri of New York University School of Medicine will share her thoughts on “What Patients Say, What Doctors Hear.” A physician and author, Dr Ofri has given TED talks on this topic.

The robust congress includes eight live general sessions, nine live focused sessions with a follow-up “Fireside Chat,” over 60 on-demand presentations on a variety of cases, studies and innovations plus live discussion groups to allow conversations with the authors of these presentations. New this year are several industries thought leader symposia whereby knowledge experts from various companies servicing the hair transplantation field can share their wisdom and science behind their products. There will be an exhibit hall, awards ceremony, as well as several surprises for attendees.

“This will not be a typical Zoom meeting. We are building an experience to remember,” said Victoria Ceh, MPA, ISHRS Executive Director. “This pandemic has affected all of our lives, but we are not letting it stop us from connecting and learning from each other as we always do. On the positive side, we are thrilled that our congress is more accessible this year to even more physicians on a global scale.”

Three ancillary courses are being offered around the Congress, including the ISHRS Basics Course in Hair Restoration Surgery for physicians new to the field, the ISHRS Advanced/Board Review Course aimed at physicians who plan to take the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS) exams, and the ISHRS Surgical Assistants Program.

The gold standard organization in the field of hair transplantation, the ISHRS recently achieved the prestigious re-accreditation by the U.S. Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). This rigorous process assures that ISHRS develops education for physicians with the highest standards. In addition, the ISHRS participates in both the CEN (European Committee of Standardization) as a liaison organization in the aesthetic medicine group, as well as in the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates (HOD), which is considered the “house of medicine” in the United States.

Keranique Expands Retail Presence

Keranique Expands Retail Presence

Having launched online last year at, Keranique has begun roll out to Sephora stores in 20 physical locations as a result of the success seen with ecommerce.

This is in addition to already being on shelves in Ulta, and online with Ulta, Nordstrom, and HSN. The Atlantic Coast Brands owned product line is also broadening their reach into all 68 Beauty Brand stores and Lord & Taylor’s online store.

An estimated 46 million women face some form of hair loss, including thinning hair. Joel Goldsmith, Keranique’s head of sales, feels that there is a great opportunity for helping younger audiences as well.

Younger women are taking skin care seriously, and starting to proactively fight wrinkles. Goldsmith thinks that the same will happen with hair care.

One of the challenges that the brand hopes to address is the social stigma over women’s hair loss. By bringing the issue into the open via advertising and education, the brand hopes to help women be able to discuss and address this ‘taboo’ subject.

As part of this outreach, Keranique recently partnered with Franco Della Grazia, a lead stylist at Cutler NYC and on-air beauty expert, as a brand ambassador.

“While most brands trying to address women’s hair loss slant towards a more medicinal look and approach, we’ve created a solution that not only works clinically, but doesn’t neglect the beauty aspect of haircare,” said Andrew Surwilo, the cofounder and CEO of Atlantic Coast Brands, the creators of Keranique.

Hair Care Pioneer Gail Federici wants to start a shampoo revolution

Hair Care Pioneer wants to start a shampoo revolution

Hair Care Pioneer Gail Federici wants to start a shampoo revolution

Unlike other hair products, shampoos are massaged into the scalp, so heavy silicones, conditioning ingredients and pearlizing agents that are engineered to “stay behind” can impact the scalp.

While beneficial when applied mid-shaft to ends for conditioning and styling, these ingredients can also build up and prevent healthy new hair growth, eventually leading to thinning and hair loss.

Case in point: More than 20,000 consumers are participating in a class-action lawsuit filed in 2014 against a popular hair care brand which is promoted as a revolutionary way to cleanse the hair without traditional detergents or sulfates.

The lawsuit claims that the company’s cleansing conditioners caused hair loss, bald spots, itching and rashes. In a rare move, on , the Food & Drug Administration issued a safety alert against the line of cleansing conditioners.

“It actually does not make sense to put ingredients into a shampoo that not only have nothing to do with the cleansing process, but in fact, do the opposite, says Federici. When you think about it, it becomes a blinding glimpse of the obvious.”

“We arrived at this “aha” moment while we were developing the Color Wow range. We couldn’t figure out why hair color never looked as fresh as the day it was done.

We made a sulfate-free shampoo that was as gentle as water so we knew the color wasn’t leaching out but it still looked dull after a few weeks.

After much analysis, the penny dropped. The shampoo wasn’t really cleaning the hair.

No shampoo was because they all contained these silicones, etc. that are not easily washed off.

That’s when we decided to do the unthinkable, pull out all these conditioning agents and silicones which was antithetical to the industry norm, and keep only the cleansing ingredients.”

Federici was disrupting the beauty industry with new solution-based innovations long before disruption was a cool marketing concept.

Then, now and always, her mission has been to create products to solve beauty problems that are plaguing women everywhere.

Customer-obsessed, renegade thinkers, she and her team are committed to address real, unmet beauty needs with high quality products that help consumers, enable upgraded professional salon services and provide unique, relevant retail offerings.

DKSH Business Unit Healthcare, the leading Market Expansion Services provider for healthcare companies seeking to grow their business in Asia, will provide registration, importation, sales, distribution, logistics and collection services for Dr. Wolff’s products in China.

The business relationship will start by launching three Alpecin products, which will be sold at Watsons exclusively.

Alpecin is the number one men’s shampoo against hair loss in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Great Britain, Romania and Hong Kong.

The foundation of the relationship between DKSH and Dr. Wolff was laid in 2013, when the companies signed an agreement to introduce and market Alpecin in Hong Kong.

With a strong sales record, the successful relationship was extended to as well include the Plantur female hair care product range.

Since then, DKSH and Dr. Wolff have successfully introduced Alpecin in other Asian markets such as Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan or Thailand.

The market entry in China marks another milestone in the cooperation between the two companies. DKSH’s excellent distribution network spanning Watsons’ stores in key cities, a proven track record in the personal care segment, strong capabilities in logistics as well as in merchandising makes it the partner of choice for Dr. Wolff’s business expansion in China.

We have a proven track record for successfully helping our clients to grow beyond traditional healthcare channels, leverage the growing potential of retail channels and expanding their market shares across Asian markets.

With our in-depth understanding of the local consumer markets and broad capabilities, we will help Alpecin expand in the way that best fits the local shopping behavior and retail environment,” commented Teresa Chen, Regional Vice President, Business Unit Healthcare, DKSH China, Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan.

The extended partnership between DKSH and Dr. Wolff will further strengthen DKSH’s market position as a strategic partner and total solutions provider in the consumer health market, and contribute to profitable and sustainable growth for Dr. Wolff’s brands as well as the DKSH Group’s overall earnings and profitability over time.

Cellmid record sales revenue in Japan

Cellmid record sales revenue in Japan

Cellmid Ltd delivers record sales revenue in Japan

 Cellmid Ltd achieved record sales of A$558,165 for its hair growth products in Japan during April.

This strong growth will position Cellmid well to deliver on their FY2016 revenue target of $4 million.

Sales are being driven by television infomercials through QVC, one of the largest infomercial channels with a global audience of over three billion.

Cellmid’s Japanese female hair loss product, Jo-Ju®, has become one of the highest selling brands on QVC.

An évolis® concept store in Tokyo planned to open in late CY2016.

Other Japanese retail opportunities are expected to start from the last quarter on FY2016.

Consumer health division

Cellmid’s consumer health business segment refers to its Advangen anti-aging hair care products.

Advangen has a range of FGF5 inhibitor hair growth products which are sold in Australia, Japan, China and Taiwan.

The most recent published financial results were for the 6 months ending December 2015 (H1 FY2016).

During this period, revenue increased by 108% across the consumer health division to over $1.2 million compared with the same period last year (H1 FY2015: $582,000).

Cellmid’s Japanese sales were $949,000 for the period, a 133% increase from the same period in the previous year (H1 FY2015: $407,000).

Midkine (MK) assets

Cellmid’s MK assets represent the company’s other business segment.

Cellmid acquired the MK portfolio in 2008. Since the acquisition the MK intellectual property has been developed and achieved significant milestones as both the antibody and protein programs are nearing clinical development.

Cellmid currently owns 79 patents and patent applications in 20 patent families relating to MK.

Cellmid has recently set up dedicated subsidiaries, Lyramid Limited and Kinera Limited as part of its clinical development plan to commercialise its MK antibody and protein assets.

Lyramid will develop the company’ s large MK antibody portfolio, assessing likely therapeutic indications in fibrotic diseases and cancer.

Kinera will commercialise the company’s MK protein assets in ischemic diseases, with a focus on chronic heart disease.


Sales growth in Japan is going to be the key driver for Cellmid to meet its FY2016 revenue goal of $4 million.

Cellmid has the potential to emulate their successful Japanese sales model in other countries where they have distribution channels for their anti-ageing hair products.

Cellmid was recently involved in industry specific global event, the Budapest Midkine Symposium which is significant for Cellmid as they market their MK portfolio to interested parties.

The company recently set up dedicated subsidiaries for its Cellmid assets to provide for a user friendly corporate and operational structure.

Upcoming events for Cellmid include:

– The planned June launch of the évolis® Professional range in Australia;

– An évolis® concept store in Tokyo planned to open in late CY2016; and

– Distribution partnerships to expand into the U.S. before the end of FY2016.
