VITRO-CORNEUM® is an advanced testing substrate that effectively mimics the thickness, visco-elasticity, chemical reactivity and surface properties of human stratum corneum. It can be used to demonstrate the hydration and moisturization properties of personal care products and raw materials in vitro.
VITRO-CORNEUM provides a new, and experimentally simpler, approach to evaluating the benefits of prototype formulations and new raw materials — without the experimental difficulties of working with and separating human epidermis. Like human stratum corneum, the visco-elastic properties of VITRO-CORNEUM change dramatically with changes in hydration.
