Delfin Technologies launched the SebumScale, a novel instrument for measuring skin sebum values, at the in-cosmetics exhibition in Paris in April.

The measurement of sebum with previously available techniques has limitations related to accuracy and practicality. Delfin’s new SebumScale offers a totally new way of measuring sebum with accuracy and user-friendliness not experienced before. The SebumScale uses a microbalance to measure the actual sebum excretion in micrograms instead of using arbitrary indexes as do other methods. The instrument also features wireless measurement data collection from the unit to Delfin’s existing data collection program. This new addition to Delfin’s product portfolio will give formulators and researchers a scientific tool for the assessment of skin sebum in product R&D and claims substantiation work.

The new Delfin SebumScale will be show-cased in the US for the first time at Delfin Technologies’ booth number 236 at the SCC Suppliers’ Days on May 11 and 12, 2010 in Edison, NJ.
