dc.description.abstract Spectrophotometry is used to estimate melanin density (MD) in Caucasians but applicability of the calculation to people with pigmented skin, who also experience sun sensitivity, is not known. Here, we directly compared biopsy melanin concentration (MC) with Melanin Index (MI), Individual Typology Angle (ITA) values, calculated Melanin Density (MD) and Self‐Reported Sun Sensitivity (SRSS), with an aim to identify a non‐invasive, reliable melanin assessment technique for deeply pigmented skin. en_ZA
