Kao's cosmetics business has commercialized Skin Potential Analysis, a service that employs skin surface lipids- RNA (SSL-RNA) monitoring technology to give a detailed picture of the skin's condition.
Launching this month, Skin Potential Analysis will inform customers about their skin’s current condition and suggest the appropriate skin care they require.
Using the two biological specimens of SSL-RNA and the stratum corneum, Skin Potential Analysis, aims to pinpoint what is happening in the skin at the time of analysis. Specifically, it analyzes 12 markers responsible for attractive skin, such as the skin's barrier function, sensitivity to UV rays and glycation level. Results are compared to the average of the same age groups, giving customers information about their current skin condition.
Categories that can be identified with Skin Potential Analysis include:
Multilayered corneoctye level
UV ray damage level
Sensitivity to UV ray damage
Ability to deliver beauty
Total oxidation level
