In the world of topical cosmetics, great products can only come from strong robust science. Without a thorough understanding of how products interact with the skin, how can the consumer be expected to make informed decisions about what’s right for them? My aim is to ‘demystify’ the world of skin measurement and provide new ways of both measuring and looking at skin.
I offer technical consultancy in the field of skin measurement, including the design and construction of custom imaging solutions, technical research and writing for internal documents and external publishing, and conference attendance and training.
Most if not all of what you see here I have direct access to, but if you are interested in an aspect of skin measurement or visualization you can’t see here, just ask.
I currently have a wide variety of skin measurement equipment such as Corneometer (hydration), Skicon (hydration), Sebumeter (oiliness), TEWL (skin barrier function) and Chromameter (colour) along with a wide variety of rare and specialised photographic equipment, for visible, infra red, ultraviolet, and UV induced fluorescence imaging.
