NIR-RS – Near Infrared – Remission Spectroscopy
The highest honour went to Institutes Dr. Schrader in Orlando, Florida. The Schrader Team received the Applied Research Award 2004 at the scientific congress of the IFSCC International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists in Orlando, Florida.
NIR-RS is an optical spectral analysis in which the viewing angle is shifted from the visible spectral range to the near infrared range to allow identification of any physiological skin reactions, even those hidden by the products that induce them such as a permanent hair color. This is a technology that the IFSCC Committee valued so highly that it honoured it in 2004 with the Applied Research Award.
