  • infrared spectroscopy
  • The application of Near Infrared Spectroscopy(NIRS) for measuring skin water content has long been established, and has gained w ide interest as a precise, safe, fast and noninvasive technique for determining skin hydration.This paper reports near infrared spectrophotometric measurements using a highly sophisticated spectrophotometer in the region of 1000-2500 nm to study the water uptake and dehydration properties of skin in vitro using samples of porcine skin. (city.ac.uk)
  • These preliminary results are expected to further explain the relationship between water and skin, and its role within, in hope to aid the future development of a portable instrument based on near infrared spectroscopy that would be capable of directly measuring skin hydration and/or water content in a fast and noninvasive manner.

  • absorbs
  • While researching the topic, it is easy for the reader to be convinced that skin absorbs whatever it touches-just like the Mork & Mindy character and his habit of drinking liquids by sticking his finger in a glass. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • While this would certainly make wine tasting parties fascinating to observe, the suggestion that skin absorbs whatever is applied to it is an irresponsible exaggeration of the facts. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • Our skin absorbs a high percentage of everything we apply to it each day/year/etc. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • thicker skin
  • the following short video will demonstrate that chlorine is not only easily absorbed, but is absorbed abundantly and quickly even through the thicker skin of the hand. (somahealth.net)
  • substances
  • The thickness of the skin varies from place to place around the body and I presume, as a consequence, the susceptibility to react to substances also varies to a certain extent, but this will depend upon the type of substance, and the effect it has on the skin. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • The authors of No More Dirty Looks, (Siobhan O'Connor and Alexandra Spunt), have clearly taken the opportunity to cite a paper on skin absorption that demonstrates relatively high levels of absorption for the substances tested in the study. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • The absorption levels are quite high, and may seem quite shocking, but both the abstract of the study and the extract from the book are unspecific - i.e. there is no direct reference to the actual test substances by the authors and the study findings are extrapolated across the whole range of cosmetic ingredients without further qualification by the authors of the book. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • So the question must be asked - what substances are being absorbed at such high levels by the skin, and under what conditions? (personalcaretruth.com)
  • The stratum corneum, thick with dead skin cells (mostly keratin) and various waxy substances, acts as a wall of protection from external moisture, chemicals, UV radiation and is your foremost guard against the bacterial world. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • However, the skin was NOT designed to inhibit absorption of modern chemicals or substances. (somahealth.net)
  • Organ
  • As the body's biggest organ, skin can serve as a sponge for such chemicals, said John Kissel, environmental engineer at the University of Washington in Seattle in the report. (skininc.com)
  • In order to clear up the lies from the truth, we need to know a little bit about the largest organ of the human body - the dermis or skin. (somahealth.net)
  • lungs
  • To breathe relatively clean air, participants wore a hood on the first day to prevent the phthalates from entering the body through the lungs.To maximize skin contact with air, each man wore only shorts. (skininc.com)
  • results
  • Initial results of pure liquid water and skin samples have clearly displayed the prominent bands associated with water content, and desorption tests have been able to verify changes in these bands associated with water content, although a clear correlation between the rates of weight loss and absorbance loss at various hydration periods has not yet been established. (city.ac.uk)
  • The results for DEP showed inhaling and skin passage delivered roughly equal amounts of the pollutant into the blood and urine. (skininc.com)
  • The numerical results of the Specific Absorption Rate, SAR, show the SAR behavior in function of input power and the chirality factor. (scielo.cl)
  • urine
  • Researchers at Katsuragi Hospital in Japan noted an improvement in the skin and collagen urine markers in subjects who took Toki® hydrolyzed oral collagen. (888ageless.com)
  • resistance
  • Measurements of skin markers and/or blood markers of patients in two other studies, demonstrated that Toki oral collagen supplement improves skin resistance, fine lines and age spots, again indicating collagen absorption. (888ageless.com)
  • amounts
  • however, a new report by Science News suggests that equal amounts of some pollutants can enter the body via the skin. (skininc.com)
  • However, small amounts can pass through the skin when people are exposed to chlorine gas, chlorine bleach, or bathing in water with high levels of chlorine . (somahealth.net)
  • body
  • The question I have is this: is the porosity of the skin, or maybe more correctly, is the permativity of the skin uniform across the body. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • whatever you apply to your skin is absorbed and goes into your blood and goes thru your entire body. (blogspot.com)
  • Skin is a fascinatingly complicated system, designed to protect against external harms (bacteria, UV radiation, etc,) regulate body heat, and manage nutrient levels and water loss. (personalcaretruth.com)
  • there's no doubt therefore that EDTA easily penetrates through the skin into the body to work it's chelating magic. (somahealth.net)
  • As any sukifan knows, 60% of what goes "on" the skin goes IN the body & affects our long-term, & short-term health…do you know the side effects of the creams & lotions prescribed by a derm or doc have many if not more of the same side effects as some of the more toxic drugs on the market (i'm talking PILLS here) - yea…sucks doesn't it? (sukiscoop.com)
  • epidermis
  • Skin is comprised of three primary regions, the outer epidermis and middle dermis and the lowest area, the hypodermis . (personalcaretruth.com)
  • The skin concentration in Mdr1a/1b/Bcrp-/- mice was reduced in the dermis, but not in the epidermis, indicating that functional expression of these transporters in skin is compartmentalized. (ovid.com)
