ANA Holdings Inc. has launched a joint project with cosmetics manufacturer Pola Orbis Holdings Inc. to develop the world's first-ever space-friendly cosmetics line by 2023.

With both companies holding high hopes for the rapidly developing field of space travel, they said the project, dubbed CosmoSkin, aims to create cosmetics that feel comfortable on the skin even in the extremely dry and zero gravity conditions of space.

ANA will provide aircraft, which can best simulate humidity levels and other conditions aboard a spacecraft, to carry out experiments to develop the products.
