COVER STORY
Skin and Polymers
Polymeric materials that cover or underpin the skin can provide soft-interfaces with abilities like protection, healing, and regeneration of the skin. The skin is the outer cover of the body, therefore, skin-applied polymers should exhibit adaptation to the environment and provide multifunctionality. This special issue features skin-applied polymers and polymer composites in interdisciplinary fields, that function not only in daily life but also under unusual circumstances.
