Fine dust pollution of the skin (air pollution) is one of the main topics in the cosmetic industry.
The existing methods of analysis for demonstrating the effectiveness of.
anti-pollution products, however, are indirect in nature, diffi cult to grasp
and in some cases even ethically questionable. Dermatest GmbH is with immediate effect offering a direct and validated detection method to investigate the effi cacy of cosmetic products against fine dust pollution. It is thus the first method worldwide which is scientifically substantiated and can clearly demonstrate the effectiveness
of anti pollution products in this way.
Both protection against pollution of the skin with fi ne dust and cleansing
of the skin contaminated with fi ne dust particles can be analysed and quantified.
Dermatest GmbH is the first institute to use exclusively approved,
certified and safe fine test dusts (DIN EN 60068-2-68 & ISO 12103-1)
which can be reproducibly applied to all skin surfaces.
