Demonstrate that your product protects the skin by preserving the balance of microflora against a transient pathogen in sensitive areas of the body.
We colonise our unique skin equivalent Labskin at a earlier stage where the skin is thinner to resemble sensitive areas of the body, with a mix of resident skin microflora that closely resembles the vagina. We also innoculate with a transient pathogen to test the products ability to defend the desirable microflora. In addition, we test for chemical markers that show the beneficial effect of the product and the microflora on the skin (e.g. Cytokines IL-1α, IL-23)
