    • Biometrology guidelines for the in vivo assessment of skin surface pH in nonclinical settings 

      Stefaniak, Aleksandr B.; Du Plessis, Johan L. (Springer, 2017)
      Skin surface pH plays an important role in the maintenance of skin barrier integrity and epidermal homeostasis. In workplace environments, myriad exposures may alter the skin surface pH and influence development of skin ...
    • Breaching the skin barrier through temperature modulations 

      Shahzad, Yasser; Louw, Ruaan; Gerber, Minja; Du Plessis, Jeanetta (Elsevier, 2015)
      The impermeability of the stratum corneum often hinders the transport of molecules across the skin. Temperature modulations in the skin and the application of local heat both have the potential of circumventing this problem ...
