Finally, Satoshi Yamaki, also of Shiseido, looked into the future to predict whether an ultra-thin, transparent nanosheet film could become an ideal stratum corneum, to impart novel skin care effects. "Rather than applying a skin care product, we suggest applying a nanosheet," said Yamaki. He described various challenges posed with the use of such a sheet. "The sheet is recovered with a mesh to make re-application possible," he said. A sodium hyaluronate laminated nanosheet was shown to extend moisturizing effects on skin. Further, when applied beneath a foundation, it could continuously impart anti-aging effects to the crow's feet area. During the Q&A session, attendees envisioned treatments for compromised skin, although Yamaki noted the need to test for long-term effects.
