Help for teeth and mouth

Elaborate clinical trials examine whether a cream is hypoallergenic, toothpaste strengthens or damages dental enamel and a shampoo improves hair structure. Material mechanics investigations at the Fraunhofer IMWS enable such questions to be answered in advance.


Help for a dry mouth

Skinomics GmbH and researchers of Fraunhofer IMWS are together searching for solutions to prevent and treat dryness of the mouth (xerostomia).
