Smart-Pore™ is designed to be used with SOD4, our proprietary instrument able to generate a flow of sweat in microchannels at flow rates similar to those in human sweat glands.
During an experiment, the user can then re-create the contact between sweat and anti-perspirant, see in real-time the reaction inside Smart-Pore™’s transparent pores, and characterize the strength of the clot when one is formed.
SOD4/Smart-Pore™ is a new technology enabling for the first time a visualisation of the interaction between sweat and cosmetic products within biomimetic pores in real-time. This opens new possibilities for fast and reliable in vivo testing of cosmetic products.
For anti-perspirant formulation testing, our instrument provides results up to fifty times faster than gravimetry, with better reproducibility.
