Abstract

Studying the friction of skin supplements other mechanical tests. Friction studies can be conducted with noninvasive methods and give a measure of the skin’s health — skin hydration, for example: Naylor1 showed that moistened skin has an elevated friction response and El-Shimi2 demonstrated that drier skin has a lowered friction response. Friction provides a quantitative measurement to assess skin.
