The concept of Microskin, a world-first skin simulation technology, was originally conceived after we realised that make-up was the only method of concealing or camouflaging skin conditions.
What transpired after many years of research into cosmetic chemistry as well as developing specially designed software used to read human skin, was a system to develop a spray-on simulated application individually formulated for each client’s skin.
The result of years of research is a world first revolutionary new Australian product called Microskin.
Microskin will not rub off, is completely waterproof, allows the skin to breath and sweat, and lasts for several days.
Since the opening of its first clinic in Brisbane in July 2005, Microskin has assisted people from all over the world with skin related conditions such as, vitiligo, birthmarks, burns, eczema, lupus, keloid scarring.
Other camouflage products can only match and cover small areas and create an unnatural appearance, especially on males and children.
At no time should people feel that their only option for covering skin related conditions is a heavy, thick make-up resulting in an uneven skin tone.
Microskin offers a far superior colour correction system, individually formulated for each client allowing the user to feel confident in their own skin.
Microskin International has been nominated for and won numerous awards including the National Business Telstra Innovation Award, The Australian Government Business Innovation Award, The Commonwealth Small Business Champion Award and The Sensis Business Ideas Award.
The company has also committed itself to ongoing medical research to further understand the psychological effects of using a simulated second skin on people with burns.
This research has included funding a 2005 study by the Royal Children’s Hospital Burns Centre in Brisbane and The University Of Queensland Australia, and more recently a 2009 study looking to demonstrate how children can overcome the social stigma attached to burn scars and other skin conditions using Microskin.
Microskin now has clinics in the United States, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
