Anti ageing and Anti wrinkle test

Anti ageing/wrinkle efficacy is assessed using different techniques: Wrinkle surface/depth/volume is measured using a real 3D camera, while skin surface properties are measured using bioengineering techniques. Instrumental evaluations may be associated with clinical/dermatological assessment. Claims Anti ageing/wrinkle efficacy Anti wrinkle effect (after single product application) Improvement of skin smoothness Other techniques Skin moisturizing Skin elasticity…

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…

Body Composition Analysis

Body composition analysis Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a method commonly used to measure body composition (Fat Mass, Lean Mass, Intra- and Extracellular water, Basal metabolism rate, and muscle) Claims Decrease of fat mass Decrease of extracellular water Other techniques Adipometry (subcutaneous adipose tissue measurement) Plicometry (subcutaneous adipose tissue measurement) Self-assessment (consumer test) ServicesAuditingCertificationConsultingInspectionTests and…

Barrier Effect

Barrier Effect: Transepidermal water loss (TEWL, also known as perspiratio insensibilis) is a normal, constitutive loss of water vapour from the skin in the absence of sweat gland activity. However, as soon as the skin barrier function is slightly damaged, water loss increases. TEWL is therefore a measure of skin barrier function. Claims Skin barrier…

Anti Cellulite

Anti Cellulite tests: Cellulite evolves through 4 stages, as follows: Stage I slow down of venous/lymphatic circulation Stage II growth of reticular fibers enveloping the adipocytes Stage III adipocytes amalgamation in bigger clusters (“micro-nodules”) Stage IV micro-nodules amalgamation in “macro-nodules” Cellulite stages can be detected due to skin temperature variation using thermographic plates. Instrumental evaluations…
