The need for year-round skin protection to support our skin against dehydration and external aggressors has inspired BASF to create a solution which offers breathable protection by employing state-of-theart technologies inspired by nature. The biodegradable alternative to polymer film formers, Mimiskin™, highly resembles human skin and offers all-around care as a skin protector. With its unique melting-point shifting behaviour, it forms a breathable lipid film on the skin, preserving moisture, enhancing complexion, and providing a multi-faceted approach to anti-pollution protection. Mimiskin has been proven to protect skin by reducing the adhesion of pollutant particles, decreasing the penetration of harmful substances into the skin, and enhancing the rinse-off of pollutant particles from the skin
