Cosmetics Skin CareFacial Mask
Ten years in the making, the anti-wrinkle facepack is made by taking the structural protein collagen from the fish skins and using “sonic electrospinning” to make a super-thin, extremely light nano-material. During the spinning process, various “bioactive” products like fruit extracts and the moisturizing compound hyaluronic acid are bonded to the collagen fiber.
When the nanofibre is placed on wet skin it dissolves and releases the nutrients deep into the skin.
The product, made in collaboration with nanotechnology company Revolution Fibres, was launched on Monday at the China Beauty Fair in Shanghai. It will be launched in New Zealand in July.
The companies hope the same high-tech fibers could be used in the future to deliver not only skincare, but topical medicines for burns, skin lesions and other skin conditions.
