VALIDATED TESTS ON LAB GROWN SKIN

ANIMAL FREE SKIN TESTING AND CLAIMS PLATFORM

With increasing pressure to provide the highest level of safely tested products to the market, it is important to find a testing and claims substantiation solution that meets ethical, consumer, regulatory and competitive needs.

The Labskin test platform is a uniquely accurate, highly reliable solution for controlling test results under real-world environments. At its core is a pioneering lab-grown full thickness human skin model that naturally mimics the microbiome of human skin.

It creates new collagen production and measures the impact on the skin’s microflora balance for cosmetic, health, wound, pharma and skin care tests.

Tests are carried out in state of the art labs by experts on living skin tissue – populated by natural skin microflora – with data being monitored in real time with AI driven extrapolation for deeper results.

12 YEARS DEVELOPMENT

THE LABSKIN TEST PLATFORM

The good and bad bacteria that naturally exists on human skin is present on Labskin when testing skin care, cosmetics, health care, drug delivery or wound care products. The Labskin test platform and protocols help maintain an optimum real-world environment that shows the positive or negative impact on skin’s natural microflora.

  • Confirm beneficial effects of skin care products or ingredients. Validate that a product maintains a balance of skin’s Microflora.

  • Confirm Anti-Aging effect with an ability to maintain and transform to a more balanced state.

  • Confirm results beyond confirmation of pro-collagen production using gene expression. Results deliver quantifiable multiple anti-aging markers.

WHY IS LABSKIN DIFFERENT?

Uniquely for a skin equivalent model, Labskin can be colonised with the microflora of skin to provide a life-like platform for the study of microbiological systems or the influence of antimicrobials. Using either commensal skin microflora or known pathogenic strains, you can simultaneously gauge both cellular and microbial responses to your product.

LIFELIKE PLATFORM

PRECISE MONITORING OF IMPACT ON SKIN MICROFLORA

Our platform includes automation and analytics that collects data to measure the growth of skin and the impact on the skin’s microflora. Real-time data quickly determines an improvement or damage on the skin microbiome balance by testing products or ingredients for:

  • Skin irritation on exposed and soft tissue areas

  • Immune response – cosmetics and cleaning products

  • Anti-fungal, dandruff immediate & residual treatment

  • Transdermal delivery of pharmaceutical compounds

  • Protective barrier – cosmetics and cleaning products

  • Healing infected wounds from various compounds

  • HPV/HSV and a range of other virus treatment tests

LABSKIN CERTIFICATION

VALIDATED MICROFLORA BALANCE

The savings generated from accurate scientifically quantifiable results of the effect of your product or ingredient on lab-grown human tissue far outweigh the cost of testing your product or ingredient.

By undergoing Labskin certification your company significantly reduces guesstimated factors of safety, efficacy, sensitivity, allergic reaction, inflammation, protection and confirms the enhancement of skin’s native defence against undesirable microbes.

CRUELTY FREE

NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS

Whether testing cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, sun creams, wound dressings and wound therapies or household chemicals, the use of lab-grown human skin offers the ability to investigate the effect of chemical corrosiveness on the skin, phototoxicity of substances and toxicity of various chemicals without testing on animals.

CLINICAL RESEARCH GRADE PLATFORM

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Colonisation with microflora allows products to be tested under real-world environment conditions.

Labskin closely resembles the behaviour of human skin, acting as a barrier to harmful substances and loss of water.

A longer test window of up to 14 days allows for repeat testing and observation of the side effects of product application.

Unique platform allows quantification of new collagen production, and observation of skin’s natural ageing process.

THE SKIN MODEL

RECREATING NATURAL ABILITY

VISUALLY ROBUST

Labskin can be exposed to surface abrasion (scrubbing or washing for repeated use) in the laboratory. The skin structure remains intact, demonstrating the skin’s natural ability to withstand everyday activities.

Ability to provide visual endpoints (for example redness due to irritation following application of a cosmetic product), which can be used in conjunction with other endpoints (i.e. inflammatory markers (signs of inflammation), permeation, barrier function, pH (acidity).

DESIGNED TO HOST MICROFLORA

COLONISE, DON’T JUST STERILIZE

Labskin has been specifically developed to host microflora. No other skin model currently available can host microflora from human skin. This approach has the potential for microbial studies of cosmetics, which cannot currently be carried out in vivo (animal models) due to ethical constraints of testing harmful bacteria (Holland et al., 2009).

SKIN BARRIER REPAIR

Labskin and Mass Spectrometry Imaging provides identification of lipids involved in skin barrier repair/wound healing process.

GENE ARRAY ASSAY

Rapid pace of development of gene array assay technologies accellerates the unravellling of the skin/microbiome complex.

COLONISED MODELS

Colonised models become the standard starting point beacuse of the Labskin ability to host microflora.

LABSKIN CERTIFICATION

CLINICAL RESEARCH

When discovering or identifying new pharmaceutical drugs for skin care, the high risk of failure at Phase II stage can easily and inexpensively be avoided at pre-clinical stage.

When the physical application of Labskin is combined with the Labskin’s AI software tools, analysis of the data can be fed into pharmacodynamic in-silico (pharmaco-dynamic/ pharmaco-kinetic) models and used in the pharmaceutical clinical research sector.

For clinical research within the skin-care sector, the long-term data accumulated provides substantive support for new and existing cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical products and treatment regimes.
