Non-invasive examination of the epidermal lipid barrier

In co-operation with the Microscopy Services Dähnhardt GmbH, the Spirig Pharma AG and the Dermatological Faculty of the University of Schleswig-Holstein, the results of a study will be illustrated, in which the recently developed method Lipbarvis® – a non-invasive technique, enabling the visualisation of the epidermal lipid barrier – was applied.

The aim of the study was to examine the efficacy of a cosmetic product before and two weeks after application, in comparison to untreated atopic skin, using Lipbarvis®.

This year’s event of the European Epidermal Research Networks takes place on September 7-8, 2011 in Barcelona.
