Synthetic (non-biological) skin model
Ideal substrate for all of your Life Science Testing and Skin Care development
VITRO-SKIN® is an advanced testing substrate that effectively mimics the surface properties of human skin.
It contains both optimized protein and lipid components and is designed to have topography, pH, critical surface tension, chemical reactivity and ionic strength similar to human skin. Testing conducted on Vitro-Skin® is generally more reproducible than that performed on human skin due to the consistent topography.
Successfully applied in a broad range of in vitro methods
VITRO-SKIN® is currently used by over 175 leading companies worldwide

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
VITRO-SKIN® is a collagen based synthetic skin substrate, formulated and produced to mimic human skin. The topography, pH and surface tension are very similar to human skin, so it is the ideal substrate for in-vitro testing where human skin is required.
VITRO-SKIN® is typically hydrated in a Hydration Chamber (part of the Vitro-Skin Starter Kit) prior to use, however some applications may not require hydration. The applications of this material are extremely diverse, so methods will vary depending on use application.
VITRO-SKIN® is used in a wide variety of industries where testing products on skin is necessary. Some of the areas where Vitro-Skin is currently being utilized include; personal care, OTC products, chemical industry testing, Veterinary applications, disinfectants, Microbiome studies, anti-viral and anti-bacterial studies, adhesives markets, medical devices, dermal penetration/absorption studies, skin moisturization studies, malodor studies, coefficient of friction studies, waterproof/water resistance studies, soft focus studies, etc.
