Laboratoire Dermsca and the Laboratoire d’Ingénierie et de Biologie Cutanées (LIBC), located in France, signed a partnership agreement in June to offer more innovative and efficient tests.
The LIBC is a university laboratory of 25 individuals, attached to the Saint-Jacques de Besançon University Hospital Center. Specializing in the development of new biometrology, pharmacology and tissue biology methods, the team explores various research fields including cell culture, cutaneous pharmacology, biometrology, image analysis and photobiology.
Laboratoire Dermscan evaluates the efficacy, safety and sensory characteristics of cosmetic products and ingredients. “Every year, we develop new measurement devices and new study methods of the external parts of the body (skin, nails, teeth and hair),” said Frédérique Girard, president, the Dermscan Group. Laboratoire Dermscan has the exclusive rights to the devices and methods and has been awarded grants from the Agence Nationale de la Valorisation et La Recherche (ANVAR).
