Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
ATR-FTIR spectroscopy provides IR spectra of the outer few microns of the skin surface and can be used to:
• Investigate skin damages (control, chemical treatment, UV exposition, treated etc.).
• Analyze the deposition of an active ingredient on skin surface and its penetration (after tape stripping).
• Moisturization effect from a product application. Can be measured at different depth (after tape stripping).
