How an antiperspirant test works
SOD4 regulates the flow inside Smart-Pore™ to keep sweat level with the pores’ surface. At the beginning of the experiment, the user spreads a given quantity of anti-perspirant on the surface of Smart-Pore™ and close the climatic chamber. Afterwards, the formation of the clogs inside the biopores can be observed with SOD4’s integrated microscope and the kinetics of the reaction quantified. During the experiment, the environmental conditions can be controlled (temperature and hygrometry). After the end of the experiment (typically after one hour) the instruments ramps up the pressure until unclogging happens. The unclogging pressure indicates the solidity of the clogs and thus the efficiency of the anti-perspirant.
With SOD4, you can start getting results on the efficiency of your anti-perspirant formulation after one hour, with additional data such as images of the kinetics of the clot formation deep inside the transparent pore.
