Besides measurements on the skin, assessing parameters on hair and scalp play a big role in the development of shampoos, hair care and cosmetics, as well as food and food supplements.
Sebumeter® SM 815
Determining Sebum on Skin Surface, Scalp and Hair
For more than 30 years the Sebumeter® has provided the worldwide most used method to reproducibly and accurately determine the sebum level of the skin surface, as well as on scalp and hair. This is documented by the numerous mentions in scientific literature in which the terms "sebumetry" and sebum measurements are inseparable.
The measurement of gloss is very important in the efficacy testing of skin care, hair care and decorative cosmetics (lipsticks, make-up, etc.). Skin and hair are supposed to show a natural, luminous gloss without appearing oily.
Ultra-Small TEWL Measurement Probe for Special Skin Sites
With its exceptional small measuring chamber (only 2 mm Ø), the Tewameter® TM Nano allows to measure the Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) in g/h/m² on small, or difficult to reach sites, e.g. nails, scalp with hair, lips, etc.
The Skin-Thermometer ST 500 is a quick, easy and economical tool to measure the skin temperature which is an indicator of the skin's microcirculation. This plays a particularly important role when evaluating hair growth or loss.
Measure Directly on Skin & Hair with the Multi-Talent
The Visioscan® VC 20plus is a unique UVA-light video camera with high resolution to study the skin surface directly. The SELS® parameters (Surface Evaluation of the Living Skin) have been developed especially for this camera and are used in numerous studies. The images show impressively the structure of the skin and images of hair & scalp. With its multi-functional software, the Visioscan® VC 20plus is a very flexible system to characterize skin surface, hair and scalp condition easily, accurately and very economically. It had been used on board of the International Space Station ISS for several years.
Easy and Quick Method to Analyse Dandruff Accurately
Analysing dandruff is an important subject in research of hair care products and their efficacy testing. With the DandruffMeter DA 20 a very economic and extremely convenient image analysis system is on hand.
The Visiopor® PP 34 camera uses a specific UV-light to visualize the fluorescing acne lesions of an area of minimum 8 x 6.4 mm. The orange-red fluorescence indicates the presence of Propionibacterium acnes bacteria within clinically non-evident (follicular impactions and microcomedones) and clinically evident lesions (comedones, papules and pustules).
Unique Device to Look at Hydration Distribution and Texture Properties
Capacitance imaging, based on the renowned L'Oreal SkinChip®*. The sensor gives graphical information on the near surface hydration distribution and the micro-topography of skin and other tissues (textiles, plants, etc.).
