Did you know that geckos can hang on the wall because of their “foot hair”?
A gecko has billions of microscopic hairs called spatulae on each foot that allow them to adhere to almost any surface, either smooth or rough. The size of the spatulae is about 200 nm.
Bio cellulose mimics the way geckos’ “foot hair” helps adhere to almost any surface, either smooth or rough. It has a fiber diameter of 20 nm, that’s 10x smaller! That’s how bio cellulose adheres perfectly to your skin, just like a gecko! This does not only help the mask stay on your face but actually increases the contact area by 2-3 times, which triggers the occlusive dressing effect for better absorption.
