Mimiskin™ is extremely versatile and compatible with a wide range of skin care formulas such as face and body, and including applications for sun, hair, men’s and baby care products.

Quest for skincare upgrade

As consumers worldwide connect the dots between ambient pollution and the deterioration they observe in their skin’s condition, brands are rapidly adapting to the rising demand in new anti-pollution products with upgraded features. Skincare products now deliver more than general skin benefits like hydration and brightening. They are expected to be high-tech, long-lasting, proven safe and sensitive skin-friendly and effective in repairing and protecting the skin from external aggressions. Young consumers, who are looking for more than just efficacy, are pushing brands even further to innovate and bring additional selling points such as novelty and comfort in sensorial experience and better sustainability
