      The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of a hand-held indentation device for fast and reliable determination of skin stiffness. The presented indentation technique was accurate against the laboratory material testing device. Furthermore, skin changes related to ageing could be detected with the indentation technique.

      A novel in vitro method for assessing the sun protection capability of sunscreen containing products is presented. The method uses cross polarised UVA reflectance photography of sunscreen films to examine film morphology and UV absorbance, and uses both parameters to produce a stronger correlation with in vivo behaviour, than existing in vitro and in silico methods.
