    By using the high surface area/volume ratio of nanofibers, a medicinal product will be developed against intrinsic and extrinsic aging. These products will be produced by electrospinning method. Solutions containing medicinal and aromatic plant extracts (thyme, black cumin, rose oil, lavender, nettle, hemp, cellulose, etc.) obtained from local and natural sources will be exposed to a strong electric field and will be charged with negative and positive charges, creating a repulsive force against each other under the electric field. With the effect of this force, an environment of instability will be created and subsequently fibers approximately 20 thousand times thinner than human hair will be obtained. These fibers, which will be obtained at nanoscale, will be able to spontaneously degrade in nature due to environmental sensitivity. Products obtained from these antibacterial fibers (mask, tape, etc.) will be used on the skin and will show specific effects (such as cleansing, moisturizing, elasticity enhancing).
