We are especially proud that our NETZSCH Kinexus Pro + rheometer is mentioned in L´Oreals´ latest scientific report that was published in the Nature Journal. The title of the report is “A mechanistic view on the aging human skin through ex vivo layer‑by‑layer analysis of mechanics and microstructure of facial and mammary dermis”.

L´Oreal used the NETZSCH Kinexus Pro + rheometer to perform mechanical characterization of the sensitive samples. You can view the results and download the paper here:
