Abstract (English)

Background: Human skin surface has a physiologically acidic pH (pHss). In cases of increased pHss, the acidity of the skin can be restored by topical formulations. We tested a pH 5 oil-in-water (O/W) emulsion for pHss regeneration and stabilization. Methods: We performed 2 experiments with 10 female study subjects in each. In both experiments, 2D imaging with luminescent sensor foils was used to ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Hintergrund: Die Hautoberfläche des Menschen hat physiologischer Weise einen sauren pH-Wert. Kommt es zu einer Alkalisierung, kann die Wiederherstellung des sauren pH-Werts durch topische Anwendungen erreicht werden. In dieser Studie wurde eine pH 5 Öl-in-Wasser Emulsion bezüglich ihrer Auswirkung auf die Regeneration und Stabilisierung des pH-Werts untersucht. Methode: Es wurden zwei Experimente ...
