Courage + Khazaka develop innovative tools for R&D

For more than 30 years, the German company Courage + Khazaka electronic have been developing skin and hair testing devices for the global market. Explore this year’s instrument in focus at in-cosmetics booth DD19.

The MoistureMap MM 100 is a device, featuring a capacitance based sensor comparable to the renowned L‘Oreal SkinChip*. The sensor gives graphical information on the near surface hydration distribution and the micro-topography of skin and other tissues (textiles, plants, etc.).

  • Perfect addition to the quantitative measurement, as it shows the distribution of the water on the skin surface.
  • Live stream visible in the software
  • Captured image in standard jpg-file
  • Evenness of the hydration is displayed in 5 different colours and a histogram.
  • Video possible (.avi)
  • In-vivo skin measurement and also in-vitro application can be performed.
  • Additionally topographic measurements (profile, corner density, anisotropy index) give interesting ageing parameters.
  • Comparison of up to six images together with their complete results in one overview.
  • The only instrument working side by side with the established Corneometer and Tewameter
*The MoistureMap MM 100 is licenced worldwide under the L‘Oréal patent for the Skin Chip (EP 1 438 922 B1). A variety of articles on the measurement principle of the Skin Chip (same as MoistureMap) has been published.
