How it works

 

The Barrier simultaneously scans the Trans-Epidermic Water Loss (TEWL) and Stratum Corneum Hydration (SCH) levels of your skin. The TEWL sensor measures how much water your skin loses, an important factor in skin health. The SCH sensor measures how much moisture your skin is holding. In a matter of seconds, the reading is sent over bluetooth to your phone via the gpskin App.

 

Skin Barrier

The Barrier Function is an extremely important concept in skin care. It describes the strength of the skin barrier and how well it protects skin from the external environment. The barrier function refers to the Stratum Corneum layer of skin (outermost layer of the epidermis). It is analogous to a brick wall, a concept coined by Dr. Peter M. Elias of the University of California, San Francisco, who is an expert on skin barrier and epidermal biology.

 

Hydration

The amount of moisture your skin holds is an key factor to your overall skin health. The more moisture your skin contains, the healthier your skin is. Low moisture levels means your skin is dry. Without sufficient moisture, your skin can be vulnerable to a weakened skin barrier.
