Prosthetic Skin Application


Trends in Health and Beauty are going to be radical this year! Think about Prosthetic Skin Application. How many people (maybe even yourself) have challenges that are showcased to the world that you would like to hide or minimize. I sure do (I have major scars as I was a fearless child).

If people can have prosthetic ears, limbs, even eyes, why would skin not be the logical next step? Envision film formers coating and binding to your skin to create a flawless canvass (against deep wrinkles, acne scaring, pitting ect). Cover-up with your make-up and take it off when you go to bed. Talk about innovation. This could change the way women and men look at themselves and help them truly feel comfortable in their own skin (projecting the person they want you to see).

My inspiration for this was actually starring at a golf ball. They are hard yet flexible. When cutting it open, the fibers inside provided a similar elasticity to skin. When researching that out further, I found that I could simulate these fibers to create a skin-like texture. I have been working on this concept for two years and almost have it nailed, utilizing a technology that you would NEVER think of synergizing with skincare. Watch out P&G, L’Oreal and J&J, this is a concept that will take more time to knock off!
