2019/11/07 08:00:00

In cooperation with RiverD, the proDERM Academy will host an exclusive seminar dedicated to the topic of Confocal Raman Microspectroscopy (CRMs).  CRMs is a technology which opens new horizons for anyone engaged in skin-related research. For developers of topically applied products CRMs uplifts the benchmark with regard to in vivo skin research especially in the investigation of in vivo penetration. For marketers CRMs enlarges possibilities in claims support. For research professionals CRMs may be a diagnostic tool in the first place. The set of possible applications of CRMs is diverse and innovative at the same time.

This one day seminar was created to educate industry professionals for whom CRMs may be a beneficial technology. Delegates of this intensive seminar will learn about the basic mechanism of the device, well-known and established parameters and how it may be used for diagnostic purposes. Special attention will also be given to the topics of ‚in vivo penetration‘ and ’skin moisture‘ before practical demonstrations will be provided.

  • Device insights from the manufacturer
  • Raman as diagnostic tool
  • Skin moisture in two dimensions
  • In vivo penetration
  • Practical workshop

Individuals with an interest in cosmetics claims development and the law.

  • Product Developers
  • Regulatory Managers
  • Outsourcing Managers
