Role of sensor in color rendering?

capture one's skin tone tool . . .

. . . was made for you.

as jim and others have pointed out, raw conversion methodology and practice matters, here--possibly more than any other factor, including sensor cfa design.

if you are so serious--and particular--about your color that you are measuring and designing your own sensor profiles, that you are measuring white balance for black-body-radiation "accuracy" rather than for personal preference, then clearly it's time to become at least that much involved, conversant, skilled in your raw conversion methodology.

if you're concerned about hue variation over skin tones (or any color region) in your raw conversion, capture one is the converter you need to be using. because it offers the ability to edit hue, saturation, and luminance uniformity for any hue-saturation-luminance region you select. and it's not a major edit. it's easy, it's fast. you drop your mouse on the skin tone you want, you push the hue variation slider to lessen that hue region's degree of "drift" toward red or green over any breadth of saturation and luminance you'd like.

take a look.
