Nano-Research Forms Basis of "Artificial Skin Layer"

Abstract:
Vance McCarthy: Nano World News spoke with Proctor & Gamble engineer Patrick Spicer, a specialist in complex fluids research, to learn more of the story of these oil-and-water-based nanoparticles, called cubosomes.

“So unlike Vaseline, which forms a protective barrier layer over your skin, cubosomes can both protect skin from outside elements AND at the same time let the skin ‘breathe’ and exchange moisture with its environment,” Spicer told NWN.
