Bioengineering techniques have turned the way of cosmetics evaluation towards the non-invasive direction. The numerical assessment of skin properties improvement sounds interesting to the consumers. Bioengineering techniques have attracted the minds of many researchers and beliefs of consumers towards cosmetic. Instruments developed under these techniques are harmless. These techniques are fruitful not only for the cosmetics evaluation but also for comparative studies and for treatment of diseases. In efficacy studies of cosmetics, of particular importance is the epidermis, its water content, its composition, and its barrier function.
