For over 30 years, the Sebumeter® has been the most used instrument worldwide for the accurate and reproducible measurement of the sebum level of the skin surface and scalp. There is a large scientific literature in which the term “sebometry” is used for measurements made with this instrument.
Our skin produces sebum normally all over the body but the amount of sebum in different parts is very different, so that it makes possible to categorize the level of sebum for each part. This parameter is used for various clinical studies and researches.
The Sebumeter® measures the skin sebum by means of a special tape which is sensitive to oil and becomes transparent in contact with skin oil.
