River Diagnostics offers innovative Raman spectroscopy instrumentation and contract research services for detailed in vivo analysis of skin composition.
Researchers in personal care, pharmaceutical, and dermatological research are using River Diagnostics’ instruments and methods to
study penetration and transdermal delivery of topically applied compounds. These studies of skin conditions help understand the metabolic processes in the skin, and other fundamental research questions. Examples of applications are:
- Water concentration as a function of distance from the skin surface;
- Determination of natural moisturizing factor (NMF) concentration;
- Study of wash-out of skin constituents;
- Penetration and persistence of topically applied compounds;
- Skin typing.
