Abstract (en)
Use of Confocal Raman Spectroscopy (CRS) for dermatological studies, including a method for determining the thickness of the Stratum Comeum
(SC) on a test area of the skin, and to a method for quantifying the effectiveness of a skin care composition. The methods of the invention can be
carried in vitro (either artificial skin or a sample of skin) or in vivo (directly on the human skin of a person).
