The model can reduce and even replace testing cosmetics on animals
Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi have successfully 3D bioprinted human skin models that have certain anatomically relevant structural, mechanical and biochemical features similar to native human skin. The bioprinted skin produced in the lab by the team is already being used by ITC Ltd for experiments.
The bioprinted skin model will have wide applications in testing cosmetics. It can also reduce and probably even replace testing on animals.
