This study presents an in vitro experimental method to determine shear properties of the epidermis. Shear tests were performed with a parallel plate rheometer on samples of stratum corneum and the viable epidermis. The method was validated on very thin silicon sheets. Preliminary test were performed to determine the linear viscoelastic range, the effect of normal loading on the sample and the time to reach equilibrium after changes of temperature and relative humidity. The study shows that… CONTINUE READING
