Tanning Booster

Tanning Booster: Tanning booster effect is assessed under simulated conditions of use. Subjects are exposed to UV rays using a certified solar simulator. At fixed time points, skin colour is measured through spectrophotometry/colorimetry techniques. Claims Tanning booster Other techniques Individual Typology Angle (ITA) Image analysis Self-assessment (consumer test) ServicesTests and StudiesChemical AnalysisEfficacy TestsMicrobiological TestsSafety TestsConsulting…

Slimming

Slimming: When ultrasound waves penetrate a tissue, reflections occur at different tissue boundaries (i.e. fat-muscle and muscle-bone). This technique allows to measure the fat tissue thickness in single precise points as well as to scan a part of the body to track local fat loss. Claims Slimming effect Remodelling effect Other techniques Macrophotography Circumferences; Bioimpedentiometry…

Skin Hydration / Moisturization

Skin deep hydration/moisturization Efficacy: Skin deep hydration/moisturization is measured by means of corneometry. The instrument measures the skin water content of the deep skin layers based on the capacitance measurement. Claims Skin deep hydration Skin deep moisturization Other techniques Water holding capacity test Moisture accumulation test Trans-epidermal water loss Digital imaging (MoistureMap) Self-assessment (consumer test)…

Anti Wrinkle

Anti wrinkle efficacy is assessed using different techniques: Wrinkle surface, depth, volume, and others skin texture parameters are measured using a real 3D camera. Wrinkle analysis is integrated with the measurement of skin conditions (moisturization, elasticity, etc.) using bioengineering techniques. Instrumental measurements can be associated with experts scoring and dermatological assessment. Claims Anti wrinkle efficacy…

Home use test under gynaecologist

Home Use test under gynaecologist control Home-use test under gynaecologist control is aimed to assess the tolerability of products for the intimate hygiene, under real conditions of use. The product is delivered to the subjects for a daily regular use; at fixed experimental times the gynaecologist evaluates the absence of adverse signs. Claims Tolerance tested…

Antiplaque

Antiplaque efficacy is assessed using different techniques: Antimicrobial efficacy for Antiplaque of oral care products can be preliminarly evaluated through microbiological in vitro testing according to international standards specifically modified for this purpose. Minimial Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) vs. S. mutans, S. mitis, L fermentum and F. nucleatum; Antiplaque efficacy according to EN standards vs. S.…

Coadjuvant in the treatment of acne

Anti acne efficacy is assessed using different techniques: Antimicrobial efficacy testing is a useful step to screen the efficacy of ingredients/products in counteracting the bacteria involved in the onset/development of acne. The inhibitory concentration of the ingredient/product on Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis growth is assessed through microbiological tests carried out according to international recognized…
