In the present paper, we describe a new mechanical method characterising the physico-chemical properties of human skin and their variations along with liquid exposure scenario to the skin surface. A specific bio-tribometer has been developed to study the physical properties of the skin in vivo by measuring the maximum adhesion force between the skin and the bio-tribometer. We showed that the lipidic film present on skin surface was responsible for skin adhesion due to capillary phenomena. The… CONTINUE READING
