A new line of skin-moisturizing underwear is currently being test-marketed. The still-unnamed product uses a hi-tech ingredient, DermalRx HydroSeal from Applied DNA Sciences (ADNAS), incorporated into fabric. According to ADNAS, DermalRx HydroSeal is a complex of a yeast ferment, soy proteins, and soy peptides. The combination of the fabric and the moisturizing ingredient is intended to treat dry skin, which plagues many people year-round but especially in the upcoming winter months with all of the artificial heat. Dr. James Hayward, CEO of ADNAS, says of the combination,
“Introducing skin care science to the textile industry is a great example of the crosstalk between our proprietary scientific platforms, our commercial entree, and our customer base.

We’ll let you know when we hear more about this product! What do you think? Would futuristic fabric be a good substitute for putting on lotion and your underwear separately?
