PolyBioSkin develops biopolymers for high-demand skin-contact applications. PolyBioSkin will focus on two main classes of bio-based polymers: (a) polysaccharides (cellulose, starch and chitin/chitosan) and (b) biopolyesters, such as polylactic acid (PLA) and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs).
Over the next three years, PolyBioSkin will develop and validate:
*a biodegradable diaper;
*a biodegradable and bioactive facial beauty mask;
*a nanostructured biocompatible non-woven tissue.
