MINIONS Non-invasive methods for personalising dermocosmetic treatments
The effectiveness of cosmetic products involves the controlled penetration into the skin of the active compounds they contain. Knowing the composition and morphology of the skin barrier is essential to understanding the mechanisms of diffusion of cosmetic active compounds. For this reason, the development of non-invasive analytical tools describing the skin barrier function is a major challenge that offers prospects for the personalisation of topical treatments.
Multimodal approach for the design of cosmetic products adapted to all skin types
This project on the personalisation of dermocosmetic treatments is based on the creation of a multimodal analytical approach, combining Raman spectroscopy, high resolution and photoacoustic ultrasound imaging and biological studies to collect biochemical (hydration, lipids, proteins, etc.) and histological (thickness and organisation of skin layers) information from in vivo human skin. Taking into account this information and the physicochemical properties of the cosmetic forms, correlative mathematical models for predicting the diffusion kinetics of the cosmetic active compounds will be proposed. Ultimately, being able to understand the condition of the barrier function through rapid analysis will make it possible to design products to suit every skin type for an optimal effect.
