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 photographic imaging and 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.
In addition to my skin research, I also offer consultancy in the wider area of photographic imaging, specifically around understanding and measuring camera spectral response, lens transmission, flash output measurement, and imaging system design for UV, visible and IR photography. I have unique access to a range of specialized UV imaging equipment, including UV lenses, filters, cameras, light sources and spectrometers, and regularly build my own research equipment if it is not available commercially.
Most if not all of what you see here on these pages is part of my portfolio of equipment, but if you are interested in an aspect of skin measurement or imaging 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 and microscopy.
