Demonstrate the Efficacy of your Final Product or Ingredient


Anti-wrinkles and Anti-acne

Through a new high resolution 3D imaging technology, we generate a HR 3D image of the skin surface and quantify the capacity of a treatment to reduce wrinkles on human volunteers, obtaining exhaustive and shocking graphical results. This same technology allows us to quantify protuberances and assess the anti-acne efficacy of a determined treatment. Colored maps of deep and shallow wrinkles, acne, uniformity, etc are included.

  • Anti-wrinkles efficacy.
  • Anti-rugosity efficacy.
  • Anti-acne efficacy.



Whitening and Anti-dark spots

Using hyper spectral technology, we assess on human volunteers the capacity of a treatment to improve color uniformity, to decrease pigmentation of the dark circles, the number and the total area of the dark circles. 3D images and colored maps are included.

In the same way, we use Mexameter to quantify melanin and erythema levels.


  • Whitening efficacy.
  • Anti-dark spots.
  • Self-tanning efficacy.
  • Regenerative efficacy.




We analyze on human volunteers the capacity of a certain treatment to modify body temperature using thermal cameras combined with Infrared light. Ideal for anti-cellulite creams that activate the metabolism, massage creams, etc.


  • Anti-varicoses efficacy.
  • Slimming efficacy (activation metabolism)
  • Sport efficacy (warm up).
  • Anti-inflammatory efficacy.



Anti-Eye bags

We assess on human volunteers the capacity of a certain treatment to reduce the bags under the eyes, by quantifying the area, depth and volume of the bag.

Images for marketing (3D and colored maps) are included.


  • Anti-eye bags efficacy.



Moisturizing / Elasticity / Sebum

We quantify on human volunteers moisturizing (corneometer), elasticity (cutometer) and sebum (sebumeter) levels of the skin, before and after the treatment. Tailor-made designs, according to client’s needs.


  • Moisturizing efficacy.
  • Firming efficacy.
  • Eficacia anti-grasa (sebo).



Proliferation and Hair growth

We assess the capacity of a determined treatment or active ingredient to stimulate or inhibit the expression of different genes directly involved in hair growth regulation, regeneration and hair loss (IGF-1, KGF, VEGF, TGF-beta, Noggin, etc.). We extract hair follicles from human volunteers before and after treatment (in vivo) and compare gene expression through RT-qPCR, to assess the molecular efficacy and functionality of the treatment.

  • Eficacia anti-caída.


Consumer Perception studies

Most in vivo assays include a consumer perception study. We analyse the subjective effects of a treatment on human volunteers, through self-assessment questionnaire, according to the client’s needs.

  • Cuestionario de Evaluación subjetiva


Gene or Protein Analysis through Tape-Stripping / Skin scrapping

We analyze on human volunteers whether a treatment induces or inhibits the expression of specific genes, obtaining cells from stratum corneum using tape-stripping or skin scrapping before and after the treatment. This assay is also used to determine penetration capacity in the skin.

  • Eficacia molecular in vivo.
