MIT Develops Second Skin

Hold off on scheduling that facelift.  Researchers at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) have developed a compound that acts like a second, more youthful skin.  The composition is known as XPL (cross-linked polymer layer).  It is applied to the skin in two steps.  First, a layer of transparent cream is applied to the skin.  Then a catalyst is applied. The catalyst binds the cream to the skin as a transparent film. 

While XPL has obvious applications as a wrinkle cream, it may also be used as an SPF and to treat certain skin conditions such as dermatitis or psoriasis.   The video demonstrating the cream’s performance can be viewed here.
