Skin Gloss Metry

  • V. Wienert


Unlike the determination of skin roughness, the determination of skin gloss has as yet been given little attention. Recent books on examination techniques for human skin contain nothing on this subject [1–4]. This maybe connected with the fact that no methods exist for an objective assessment of skin gloss. Gloss measurement in industry, on the other hand, is an established and standardised procedure, particularly in the field of surface finishing [5–7].
