Characterizing the shape of a drop of water on a surface and determining its contact angle is a well-known method to analyze wettability, skin’s free surface energy, its tension and its hydrophilic/hydrophobic properties.
The new Ambient Condition Sensor RHT 400 (successor model of the RHT 100) records ambient temperature and relative humidity. New and absolute unique feauture: in combination with the MPA CTplus software also the local air pressure is displayed.
The EEMCO Group (European group on efficacy measurement and evaluation of cosmetics and other products) is back with its latest guideline on the very important skin water measurements.
With its ultra-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.
Within seconds the facial image is analysed regarding pores, spots, wrinkles, skin tone evenness and UV pigmentation. According to the results individual products can be recommended.
