Spray on skin
Where is it used?
Since the first use of Spray On Skin, it has become a medical, and scientific breakthrough. Now it is being used in hospitals all over the world!
The area of science is medical science, because spray on skin is helping people who are burnt and scarred. Spray on skin is very scientific because of the culturing of the skin cells. Culturing means growing bacteria or cells.
Spray on skin is still a working progress, and that means that it could get even better. In the future, I would like to see spray on skin in every country!
