SilcSkin™ is the original silicone anti-wrinkle pad, invented by Emmy award-winning Hollywood make-up artist Camille Calvet, CEO of Calvet Cosmetics.

Calvet Cosmetics of Los Angeles, California is the manufacturer of the SilcSkin™ brand of silicone anti-wrinkle pads.

How & why?

“With more than 25 years experience in the Hollywood film & television make-up industry, working with some of the biggest movie stars in the industry, I quickly learned the most prevalent issue was eliminating face and body wrinkles. Having used silicone extensively in mould making and prosthetic application, I noticed how silicone had healing and softening properties when used directly on scars” said Camille Calvet, inventor and producer of SilcSkin™ products. “So, after experimenting and testing my first prototype the Décolleté Pad with silicone, I was extremely pleased that I had created a long lasting product, that is safe and easy to use on the highly sensitive chest area, is non-invasive and costs a fraction of the price of surgical alternatives.”
