The Colorimeter CL 400 measures specifically the colour of the skin. Measuring values are expressed as coordinates in the colour space L*a*b* (or as RGB).
The probe sends out white LED light, arranged circularly to uniformly illuminate the skin.The emitted light is scattered in all directions,some parts travel through the layers and some is scattered out of the skin.The light reflected from the skin is measured in the probe. The raw data of the probe are corrected with a special colour matrix to adapt them closely to standard values and are expressed accordingly.
The probe has been developed especially for the needs of measuring changes in the skin & hair color.
Cosmetic and pharmaceutical efficacy tests, like sun screen products, self-tanners, make-ups, whitening products, decorative cosmetics, hair and carotene food supplements.
