Artificial Perspiration

Pickering Laboratories’ Artificial Perspiration is Formulated to Test Products for Colorfastness, Corrosion and Discoloration

Pickering Laboratories has developed reliable, reproducible and consistent artificial eccrine perspiration solutions for research and product testing. The Pickering Laboratories artificial eccrine perspiration is formulated to be universally standardize across all industries; it is the only formula that can satisfy all test challenges.

We also offer industry specific Artificial Perspiration formulations and custom formulations.

Artificial Eccrine Perspiration
Suitable for Multiple Applications

The Artificial Eccrine Perspiration we offer is a readyto-use solution and is the closest mimic to true human eccrine sweat. It consists of nineteen amino acids, the seven most abundant minerals, and the four most abundant metabolites at a pH of 4.5. All concentrations closely match experimentally determined values for adult human eccrine sweat.

The stabilized solution is preserved with a fungicide and bactericide for two years of shelf life at room temperature. The non-stabilized product is kept frozen and has a shelf life of one year. Custom formulations at varying pH (2-9) can be made as either the stabilized or non- stabilized solutions.

Artificial Sebum

Sebum is an oily secretion produced by sebaceous glands, which spreads over the hair and skin for waterproofing purposes. Pickering Laboratories, Inc. manufactures an artificial sebum formulation according to ASTM designation D4265-14 or D4265-98. It is readyto-use and provides the reliability, reproducibility and convenience needed for testing. This formulation can be used according to AATCC Standard Test Method 130-2010 for evaluating the efficacy of home laundry products and conditions to remove stains from fabric.

Eccrine Perspiration -Sebum Emulsion

Inspired by the ASTM D4265-98 method for staining, Eccrine Perspiration is emulsified with Artificial Sebum. Prepared without dust/dirt for a more universal application, this emulsion mimics non-exercise induced skin surface film liquids (SSFL). As SSFL, it can be used to test any topical use product or the stability of any article that will come in contact with human sweat. This product requires refrigeration to remain in solution and prevent rancidity.

INDUSTRY SPECIFIC ARTIFICIAL PERSPIRATION

Pickering Laboratories created our Artificial Eccrine Perspiration to universally standardize across all industries; it is the only formula that can satisfy all test challenges. Although it is the most complete formulation available, we also offer the following industry-specific artificial perspiration formulations.

All offered artificial perspirations are shipped ready-to-use. The stabilized solutions are preserved with a fungicide and bactericide for two years of shelf life at room temperature. Non-stabilized formulations are kept frozen and have a shelf life of one year.

Custom pH (2-9) is offered for most of our industry-specific artificial perspirations and can be made as either the stabilized or non-stabilized solutions.

DIN 53160-2: 2010-10 Artificial Perspiration

COLORFASTNESS OF ARTICLES FOR COMMON USE

This solution is used to determine the colorfastness of articles for common use to perspiration. This test establishes whether coloring materials can migrate from the articles of daily use to the skin. The test method is applicable to all articles of daily use, independent of the coloring procedure applied (dyeing, staining and coating). This method doesn’t apply to articles intended for contact with foodstuffs, nor does it apply to parts of daily-use articles whose function is the release of coloring materials. Examples include wax crayons and colored pencil leads. Possible mechanical wear is not taken into account, such as the exposure of a colored layer after mechanical abrasion to a finishing coat. The formulation is offered at pH 6.5. (Custom pH and stabilized versions available)

ISO 11641 Artificial Perspiration

COLORFASTNESS TO PERSPIRATION FOR LEATHER

This formulation is used to determine the color fastness to perspiration of all kinds of leather at all stages of processing, but it applies particularly to gloving, clothing and lining leathers, as well as leather for the uppers of unlined shoes. This alkaline perspiration has a considerably greater effect on the color of leather and is therefore used to stimulate the most demanding conditions. The solution is offered at pH 8.0.
