Abstract

Summary In this study the moisturization of the stratum corneum was assessed using a non-invasive and non-destructive in vivo method, i.e., Fourier Transform Infra Red spectroscopy. First, the values of absorption band integrations were recorded for the non-treated skin. Next, the results after application of various cosmetic preparations were reported and correlated with corneometric findings.
