This special equipment is used to verify the qualities of cosmetic skin care products intended to improve and regenerate barrier properties of the skin. There are several methods of such assessment.

the most popular Skin Hydration Assessment Method based on evaluation of open chamber gradient

The most popular is the method based on evaluation of open chamber gradient:
1. A small part of corneal layer is removed with the help of an adhesive tape thus reducing the barrier functions of the skin. Then the water loss is measured and it is formulated in grams of evaporated liquid from a square unit within one hour.
(In normal conditions this value should not exceed 8gr per hour and vary between 4 and 7gr.)
2. Then a cosmetic product improving barrier functions is applied to the skin and the water loss rate is measured again. 3. Comparative analysis of both values gives us an idea of how effective the cosmetic product is.

next special methods for the assessment of water content in the corneal layer of the skin

"Sensation" test

The amount of devices designed to evaluate different structural aspects and functions of the skin is growing every day. Some of these devices measure same parameters using different approaches.

This trial assesses hydration qualities of the cosmetic product according to a six point system.

Therefore it is very important to understand exactly what one particular device measures and what its limitations are. This can make the development of new skin products more systematic.

Skin's natural moisturising ingredients are: urea, phospholipids as well as lactic, malonic, Glycosaminoglycans, Hyaluronic Acid and pyrrolic carboxylic acids.

Natural moisturizing ingredients retain water on the skin surface, connecting it, or affect cell protein configuration which results in water retention in the cells.

Hyaluronic Acid and Glycosaminoglycans
extracted from placenta

Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are produced by the body to maintain structural integrity in tissues and to maintain fluid balance.
Hyaluronic acid is a type of GAG that promotes collagen synthesis, repair, and hydration.
GAGs serve as a natural moisturizer and lubricant between epidermal cells to inhibit the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs).
Topical Glycosaminoglycans supplements can help to provide temporary restoration of enzyme balance to slow or prevent matrix breakdown and consequent onset of wrinkle formation.

Hyaluronic Acid and Glycosaminoglycans extracted from placenta has the best quality and is the most effective.
- Its is 100% compatible with human skin, does not cause allergic reactions or irritations.
- Cosmetics which contain hyaluronic acid softens, moisturises and protects the skin, noticeably changing its appearance.
- In medicine Hyaluronic Acid is used for speeding up wounds healing (especially burns) and in ophthalmology.

Hyaluronic acid is recommended for high quality moisturising gels and creams though it practically used in cosmetic products, medical treatments, including make-up products.

At present Glycosaminoglycans, Hyaluronic Acid and its salts are used in:
- moisturising creams,
- anti-aging creams,
- anti cellulite programs,
- eye creams,
- anti-inflammatory serums,
- wound healing and regenerating Gels,
