A significant feature of the newly developed measuring method (DESI-MSI) is that it can analyze multiple ingredients at the same time in a single measurement process. Therefore, for research on the permeation state of cosmetics ingredients in the skin, this makes it possible to simultaneously analyze aspects that include other formulated ingredients and the relationship with constituents in the skin. By utilizing this feature, there is the potential of broader applications, including new cosmetics development with even stronger permeation strength and in-depth research on the elucidation of the state of permeation into the skin.
Going forward, Shiseido aims to apply this technology in cosmetics development, including developing cosmetic products with even stronger permeation strength, as well as research on the route and amount of active ingredients permeating into the skin. This technology has been applied as a method to evaluate the permeation strength of 4MSK, the company's whitening ingredient in its White Lucent Power Brightening Mask, which will be launched Feb. 1, 2013.
