Microskin™ Lifestyle

Going to the beach, playing sport or enjoying any active lifestyle is perfectly fine when using Microskin.

Microskin allows it’s users to be as active as they choose in their day to day lives. Microskin is completely waterproof, users can confidently go swimming in the ocean or a pool and be confident it will not run, smudge or come off at any time. Microskin allows the skin to breath and sweat as normal so any level of indoor or outdoor activity in the heat or the cold will effect how Microskin presents itself once it has been applied correctly. Microskin will not rub off on clothes or while in bed leaving those unsightly stains that other camouflage cosmetics do. Read more about the technology below.

Microskin™ camouflage cosmetics are the benchmark in colour correction technology for your skin.

By using the patented Microskin™ Simulated Second Skin, natural colour pigments are added to create a colour range of 35 skin tones that can be matched to your skin using our Microskin™ colour match App. 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™ camouflage cosmetics offer a far superior colour correction system, which will not rub off, is waterproof, leaves your skin breathable and lasts on the skin for up to 7 days*.

Microskin™ camouflage cosmetics can be individually formulated for each client allowing the user to feel confident in their own skin and for more than 10 years has assisted people from all over the world with skin related conditions such as, vitiligo, birthmarks, burns, eczema, lupus, keloid scarring.

*Independent test results show this, however user results may vary.
 

Microskin™ is fully committed to manufacturing safe, functional and effective products to be available around the world.

Safety

Since our launch in 2007 we have an exemplary safety record.

Microskin™ products are manufactured in Australia in a fully licensed TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) facility. Microskin™ products are fully compliant with all regulatory requirements demanded by government agencies and the scientific institutions that oversee cosmetic product ingredients. Only ingredients that meet regulatory approval and can be used safely are used in Microskin™ products. Each ingredient we use undergoes a thorough review before it is included in any of our products. The Microskin™ technical team are qualified experts in their field and continually evaluate any new information referring to the safe use of any existing ingredients. If it is determined through technical enquiry that any ingredients may no longer be considered to be safe or prohibited by law, they are no longer used as an ingredient in any Microskin™ product.  

Microskin™ is manufactured to meet global safety standards required by government bodies including the TGA, FDA, European Union, Health Canada, the World Health Organisation and many others. Microskin™ have reviewed the statements of these bodies to insure full compliance of all our products and where necessary FDA and international registration and certification has been obtained.  

Product ingredient information can be found on all labels of Microskin™ products together with usage requirements required by country regulations. Users of Microskin™ products can be assured that any product that carries the Microskin™ brand has undergone thorough safety and evaluation and can be used with complete confidence.

Application & Techniques

When you arrive for a Microskin™ consultation you will work one-on-one with a consultant that has undergone extensive training in the Microskin™ System. The consultant will develop a close approximation of your colour-match formula and allow you to touch and feel the Microskin™ difference while it is applied to your skin. If you elect to enrol in the Microskin™ System you will then have your skin evaluated and a colour-match formula will be developed for your individual skin.

There are two techniques of applying Microskin™.

Stipple

The Stipple / Sponge technique is meant for relatively small areas, approximately the size of you hand. A specially designed stipple sponge is used. The pore like texture of the sponge allows the Microskin™ to be applied in layers, giving the Microskin™ a skin like texture.

Airbrushing

This is the technique used for larger areas. The airbrush allows the user to achieve a fine, even application, which dries quickly.

During your consultation you will be trained in both techniques of application and your Microskin™ consultant will determine which procedure best caters for your condition.

How long does it last?

INDEPENDENT STUDIES HAVE PROVEN THAT MICROSKIN™ SIMULATED SECOND SKIN LASTS ON THE SKIN FOR UP TO SEVEN DAYS.

The wearability varies with different skin types (oily/dry) and on different parts of the body. Microskin™ can last up to two days on the face, as the natural oils in facial skin will breakdown the Microskin™ more quickly than other areas. On other parts of the body, you can expect full coverage for up to  seven days with an application and you may only need a slight touch-up to achieve a longer lasting result.

When applied to the hands, the application will also break down more quickly due to the frequent contact and washing and drying of hands. Burn patients are able to get more durability from Microskin™ as they don’t have the sweat or oil glands to break it down.

Technology

Microskin™ Simulated Second Skin performs in two distinct ways.

  1. Microskin™ is applied to the skin in liquid form. As the delivery agents rapidly evaporate it leaves a water resistant film on the skins surface that looks and feels like your natural skin.

  2. During the evaporation phase the Cellulosic and Oil components migrate towards the skins surface and partially enter the Corneum layer. This assists in binding the dried filmto the skins surface and provides considerable elasticity to the film.

When the Microskin™ film is removed with the Removing Serum the Cellulosic and Oil bound Corneum Cells are exfoliated with the removed film. Technically, any ingredients which remain on the surface of the skin or in the Corneum layer are referred to as ingredients which have “penetrated”. They are not considered to have entered the capillary system and therefore are not referred to as having been “absorbed”.

As Microskin™ is formulated on more Lipophilic (Oil based) ingredients these components have a difficult job continuing further down the path of penetration in the Corneum layer due to the lower Epidermal layer having a higher water concentration and therefore considered more Lipophobic (Oil resistant). As we all know Water and Oil do not mix easily – if at all.

The concentrations of ingredients in the Microskin™ film are carefully balanced to provide sufficient penetration only to hold the film firmly onto the skin and not allow high penetration into the Corneum layer. This balancing of components is carefully managed to provide elasticity of the dried film to produce lasting properties.

To prevent total blocking of sweat glands and hair follicles the ingredient balance is carefully adjusted to allow the skin to “breathe” and perspiration to pass through the water resistant film.

When we say that Microskin™ allows the skin to breathe we do not mean that the skin actually breathes and the Microskin™ film continues to allow that to happen. As it is widely known the human respiratory system does not include the skin, even though the human skin is the body's largest organ and makes up about 15% of body weight. It does lots of amazing things but it does not play an active role in helping us to breathe.

What the Microskin™ film does do, is allow the air to reach the skin. Microskin™ is uniquely engineered so when the delivery agent of Microskin™ rapidly evaporates it creates microscopic vents in the Microskin™ film which allows oxygen from the air to reach the skin. Oxygen exposure of the human skin is considered important for maintaining a healthy skin.

A further important property of the Microskin™ film is it allows perspiration to pass through the film and does not stick to hair allowing your hair to continue to grow. Facial hair will also continue to grow so the male members of our Microskin™ family of users will still have to shave. However as the Microskin™ film is extremely resistant to water and has extremely high adhesive and strength properties careful shaving may be carried out without damage to the Microskin™ film.

Again the innovative engineering of Microskin™ allows it’s unique adhesion, water resistance and elasticity properties to be used without blocking the skins pores through which perspiration passes to the air. When the body begins to sweat it is not unusual to observe beads of perspiration forming on the surface of the Microskin™ film. Sweat does not harm or damage the Microskin™ film.

These Microskin™ properties further demonstrate the uniqueness of Microskin™ and the incredible functionality it offers as a simulated second skin.
