Stanley Jacobs MD
About WorldSkin LLC
Our skin care company has been in the making for a long time — since ancient Egypt. Stanley Jacobs, M.D. has long been a student of Egyptology. He and his family have traveled to Egypt many times. He is an avid reader of Ancient Egyptian texts, is a member of the American Research Center of Egypt and has done extensive research on the mystical beauty of the ancient Egyptians. For years, Dr. Jacobs has been trying to decide the best way to combine the ancient Egyptian methods with modern day science in order to develop his skin care line. He was telling his story to a colleague at a plastic surgery conference several years ago, which led to his introduction to Jules Zecchino. Mr. Zecchino, who had been working as a chemist in the cosmetics industry for many years, had just left his corporate job in order to be able to develop his own ideas for a new and revolutionary skin care line. They were a perfect match!
We have a world vision whereby the skin of human-kind blends into one. Our old perceptions of skin as a differentiator can become a common denominator. Rather than allowing skin to separate us, we can unite through skin. We are all created the same: our blood, nerves, bones, eyes AND skin. Rather than being preoccupied by the differences between individuals, we want to emphasize our commonality.
The world has five billion people. There is an average of one square meter of skin per person – five billion square metres of skin. The world’s skin is equal to the size of the Sudan, or two and one-half times California’s surface area. If all of the world’s skin was blended together it would be woven into beautiful, homogenous beige. We are separated only by a few melanocytes. These are the cells in skin with pigment granules. They are microscopic spike-shaped structures in the middle layer of our skin. On that basis alone we have waged wars, performed atrocities and created biases in our minds. Isn’t it time we thought about skin as a commonality and looked at skin care products as chemicals that bind us?
Our mission is to produce the best skin care products in the world, by bringing ancient Egyptian history and modern science together in one consistent product line. We want to usher in an era of science based skin care products that also feel luxurious and smell fresh. We will objectively prove our results as no other skin care company has done, using biomechanical studies. We plan to give back to the world by supporting humanitarian causes and using recycled materials. We plan to make human skin healthy, prevent sun damage, and reduce the effects of aging and acne. We will lessen the world’s wrinkles and help prevent them by increasing the skin’s visco-elasticity.
