Introduction The human skin’s biophysical characteristics in vivo constitute an important indicator of the skin’s condition. Non invasive methods of exploration (MENI) used to evaluate give a direct measure of the biophysical characteristics of this organ and have the possibility of skin condition quantification. Objectives The study was designed to distinguish the skin response after the continuous application (three months) of two different osmotic cosmetics: a Moisturizing Emulsion and a Facial Mask, both elaborated from Lanjarón-Capuchina mineral water «dry residue: 19.871 mg/l; chloride (Cl‐): 8.867 mg/l; sodium (Na2+): 3.941 mg/l; calcium (Ca2+): 1.423 mg/l; magnesium (Mg2+): 235 mg/l; sulphate (SO42‐): 448 mg/l; bicarbonate (CO3H1‐): 1.732 mg/l and iron (Fe2+): 28 mg/l». The main objective of the present study was to determine the in situ biomechanical behaviour of skin in response to the use of two cosmetic products manufactured from the sediments (saline muds) of Capuchina water. The impact of the osmotic products on the biomechanical behaviour of human skin, its pH, sebum output, barrier function and dermal density was quantified in healthy volunteers using several non‐invasive approaches...
