What makes a skin feel good?

University of Leeds scientists coordinated by Professor Peter Olmsted of the School of Physics and Astronomy along with a larger project led by Dr. Massimo Noro at the Unilever R & D Port Sunlight are finding out just what makes a skin feel good.

 

Using atomic force microscopy, computer simulation and theoretical physics, they aim to understand how such a complex structure like the skin, has the properties of strength and elasticity.

 

Obviously, the  Unilever company will use the result to design better skin care products..
