Abstract

SciGenesis will optimize the multi-mechanistic thermally protective cosmetic coating developed during our Phase I efforts in order to maximize thermal protection and impart optimum spreadability, coverage, and stability. The optimized prototype will then become the base formulation for research to deter material transfer, promote water resistance and removability, improve wearability, meet color specifications, and achieve storage stability requirements. Packaging selection and scale-up to kilo scale will result in estimated manufacturing costs and a complete FDA regulatory assessment.
