On human objectivation and assessment of cell renewal by the Cerco

8 November 2017

The epidermis is constantly renewed. Time cell renewal is about 28 days for a young person.

It is a natural process in direct link with the desquamation of the corneocytes and the elimination of dead cells. It also helps improving the complexion radiance, to smooth the skin texture, eliminate imperfections and oxygenate the skin. With age, the cell renewal slows down but cosmetics can improve this renewal by increasing the desquamation of surface.

Cerco has since always a robust and specific protocol to follow the corneocyte renewal using a corneocyte marker (fluorophore) combined with image analysis. It allows to visualize and quantify the acceleration of the corneocyte renewal after a cosmetics treatment.
