Abstract
Investigation of skin water loss and clearing agent delivery through stratum corneum is presented. Effectiveness of the method "lattice of islets of damage" for enhancement of stratum corneum permeability for water and 71% glycerol solution providing the skin clearing was investigated. Dehydration induced by both stimuli evaporation and osmotic agent action was studied by weight measurements. Measurements of refractive index dynamics of glycerol and water during its interaction with skin samples were carried out. The results have shown that proposed method allows effective transepidermal water loss and delivery of optical clearing agents.
