Relative humidity can range from 25 to 75%. In some embodiments, the implementation of the temperature can be from 37 to 40°C. In some embodiments, the implementation of the relative humidity ranges from 25 to 45. In one embodiment, the temperature is approximately 37.8°C±1°C (100°F±2°F)and relative humidity is 35%±5%.
During the first 40 minutes of the period to stimulate sweating study participants hold unweighted non-woven cotton fabric cosmetic wipes (Webril™ cosmetic wipes from Kendall) in the armpit. This pre-warming step is two successive 20-minute collection period, during which study participants holding balanced woven cotton cosmetic wipes (Webril™ cosmetic wipes) in the armpit. These cosmetic wipes weighed in strongly occluded polystyrene test tubes before and after application. The tubes are labeled by the participants in the study, the designation of the armpit and collection. The first collection made on a weighted cosmetic wipes, defined as the Collection B, and the second as the Collection C. while collecting on a weighted cosmetic pads study participants are required to sit in an upright position with both the tops of the feet on the floor and put his hands on his hips symmetrically on either side of itself. The number of collected sweat in grams determined by subtracting the initial weight of napkins from the mass with sweat.
All study participants involved in water testing after approximately 1 hour after the last processing application. Participants should arrive at the pool after the application of the investigated product and the 20-minute waiting period. Study participants can be investigated separately in the swimming pool or study participants can participate as a group in the pool. Study participants are in the water for about 20 minutes. During your stay in water research participants should move/swim at a moderate pace. Study participants leave the pool after 20 minutes and wipe, avoiding underarm areas. All study participants must re-enter the water after a 20 minute break. Study participants remain in the water for about 20 minutes, performing motion at a moderate pace. Approximately 20 minutes later, the study participants again wipe (avoiding axillary regions) and returned to the laboratory for testing in a hot room after approximately 1 hour.
The antiperspirant activity can be calculated by determining the changes of indicators sweating from processed armpit and raw p is myshechnoi area for each study participant. Calculate the estimated percentage reduction and 95% confidence intervals. Data can be analyzed according to the ranking criteria Wilcoxon signed. The source data for this analysis are processed to obtain corrective control coefficients for the ratio of sweating in the left and right armpit areas. These ratios are calculated using average charges after processing and for each individual in each time period. Adjusted processed before the benchmarks for this analysis can be calculated as follows: Z=(PC×T)/(PT×C), where Z is a correction factor, PC represents the measured moisture before processing control underarm (placebo), PT represents the dimension before processing the analyzed armpit, T is a measurement after processing the analyzed armpit, and C is an appropriate number for the control of axillary region (placebo).
