More than 500 pharmacists are participating on Thursday in the Fourth National Day Dermopharmacy being held at the Goya Theater of Madrid. During the opening ceremony they involved the Treasurer of the General Council of COF , Rosa Lopez-Torres, and national Dermopharmacy member of the General Council of COF, Cristina Tiemblo.
Rosa Lopez-Torres said that “pharmacies provide answers each year to more than 10 million queries related to the skin , and meetings like this prepare us as health professionals to respond professionally. The skin is exposed to constant threats and sometimes their status alerts us to other health problems. “
A differentiated and professional service
Meanwhile, Cristina Tiemblo said that “this national day – and celebrating its fourth edition – is very important because in it we form pharmacists to offer people a differentiated and professional service . Users are increasingly demanding and have more knowledge, so it is essential the continuous recycling and training of pharmacists “
After the inauguration, Mª Jesús Lucero, professor at the Faculty of Seville gave the inaugural conference on the pH of the skin and cosmetic products “. It stressed inter alia “the surface pH of the skin is 5.5 because each zone has a different pH , and it is never neutral or alkaline”. Therefore, it said that the pH of cosmetic products need not be neutral and must be adapted to the area where they will apply. “In the case of a dermatological condition the pH of the skin surface has to restore adequate cosmetic products”, he has manifested.
Other topics to be discussed at the conference are dermatologic health problems, with the participation of distinguished dermatologists, Sergio Vañó and Pablo de la Cueva; natural cosmetics or false myths of cosmetics, among others.
