If there are two truly satisfying things in life, at least one of them is peeling sunburnt skin. I find it hard to believe that there is anyone who does not take pleasure and satisfaction from this simple activity.

Yet but, with increasing awareness of the dangers of sunburn, and with hourly improvements in sunblocks, this simple pleasure is available to fewer of us each year.

MaxCo. is therefore slightly proud to announce it's latest craze product - Peelable Skin In A Can.

Simply open the lid, and plunge the hand of your choice into the cool translucent gel, enjoying the slight but nostalgic aroma of balsa cement. Remove the aforementioned hand, and allow a few minutes for the solvent to evaporate, leaving behind a thin and tenacious plastic film which can be peeled at your leisure to provide that reptilian satisfaction.

Not recommended for those with extravagant hand-hair.

       Ecchhh. I HATE HATE HATE peeling sunburnt skin... Never thought anyone would consider it enjoyable. So I'll stay neutral on this one.

       This would be great if it came in a spray can.

       Baked - PVA glue - just spread on a thin layer and leave it to dry. You could make big money by repackaging cheap PVA glue as 'Peelable Skin' with some marketing guff on the packet about the proven therapeutic effects of peeling skin off your arms and how it originates in ancient Chinese medicine, etc., etc...
