Dr Iona Weir to be Key Speaker at Beauty Tech Conference in Auckland

Scientist, Microbiologist and Biochemist Dr Iona Weir has recently been announced as one of the key speakers at Beauty Tech Conference in Auckland – an industry event for beauty and aesthetic professionals in New Zealand on May 20-21 at Auckland’s Ellerslie Event Centre.

Dr Iona Weir is an entrepreneurial scientist who in the past 25 years has founded her own ventures and helped and advised other operators in the natural health products and biotechnology domain.

Two years ago, she was a major attraction at a Dermatology Conference in Chicago where she presented the amazing work completed for the treatment of eczema which convinces the body’s immune system to attack the affected area. Atopis, as it’s called, was a culmination of around 20 years of research and development that stemmed from her PhD research.

This year at Beauty Tech Conference, Dr Iona Weir will be speaking to delegates about the symbiotic relationship between gut and skin health. She will explain the science behind gut and skin microbiomes and how what you eat and put on your skin influences your microbiome, which in turn influences your mental health, metabolism, digestion, allergies and beauty.

“We are really delighted to have such a high calibre speaker at Beauty Tech this year” says Founder of Beauty Tech Conference, Ruth Nicholson. “Her groundbreaking work with Atopis really goes to show the type of research being done when it comes to skin health. I have always believed it’s critically important for beauty and aesthetic professionals in New Zealand to have an understanding about the science behind how our skin looks and feels.”

The theme for this year’s event is ‘changing the face of the industry’. Ruth says “every effort has been made this year to find a variety of speakers to equip delegates with the knowledge to really make a difference to our industry. Topics range from treating clients with hirsutism with laser to helping identify melanoma”.
