Abstract
Near IR confocal Raman spectroscopy is a non-invasive and non-destructive technique that can provide information about molecular structure and composition in vivo. It is therefore of great interest for skin research. Neither samples preparation nor the use of markers and dyes are required. High quality spectra of the skin can be obtained in several seconds to minutes. Here we present in vivo Raman spectra of the outermost skin layer: stratum corneum. The spectra are interpreted in terms of differences between the molecular composition of the stratum corneum at two different body locations.
