  • TCS Research has developed a computational skin model—a digital twin of the human skin—to accurately test cosmetic and drug formulations using modeling and simulations instead of relying on animal testing.
  • This development reduces or could eliminate the need to adhere to regulatory restrictions that arise with animal testing.
  • The twin can be globally accessed and hosted on cloud. It negates the need for a dedicated lab, specific infrastructure, or a team of experts to test and develop formulations.
  • As a virtual model of the human skin, the twin opens up a world of possibilities for the biopharma and cosmetics industries. It makes running multiple trials possible, allowing for a greater propensity for favorable outcomes.
