Moisturization Testing

Moisturization Testing

Assessing your product's ability to moisturize the skin is commonly performed at BioScience Laboratories. Using various specialized bioinstrumentation, including: TEWL, Corneometer, Mexameter, Visoscan & Skicon, as well as Board Certified Dermatologists. BSLI has the experience and expertise for your moisturization studies. 

Bioinstrumentation Equipment  & Procedures
  • Leg Controlled Application Technique (LCAT) – Estimates the relative skin irritation potential
  • Forearm Controlled Application Technique (FCAT) – Estimates the relative skin irritation potential
  • Corneometer – Measures epidermal water content, an indicator of dryness & damaged skin
  • Tewameter – Measures the rate of transepidermal water loss, an indicator of damaged skin
  • VISIA Imagery – Measures several qualities of the skin, such as scaliness and wrinkling, by means of digital scanning and computer analysis of the resulting image
  • Digital Photography – Provides visual display of the skin for subjective pre/post application comparisons 
  • D-Squame – Provides an indicator of dryness, harvests & preserves for enumeration epidermal squames by adhesively lifting them from the skin
  • Skicon – A non-invasive technique which uses high-frequency conductance to measure skin hydration

BioScience Laboratories' scientific personnel are trained extensively for visual evaluation of skin conditions, and we also can provide board-certified dermatologists for studies of products requiring dermatologically tested claims.


Clinical Testing Laboratory

Our start-to-finish solution for clinical trials begins with understanding our client’s end goals for the study and aiding them in the study design.  Throughout the project we remain in on-going contact with our sponsors to ensure that the project is managed with the best interest of the client in mind.
