Skin pigments to strengthen sofas

Melanin is the natural protein found in the Skin, hair and the iris of animals that gives color as well as protects them from ultraviolet rays. On the other hand, Polyurethane is a polymer used in materials to manufacture products such as tires, wheels and foam seating to name a few.
