Heat Resistant Camo Makeup for Our Soldiers

Scientists are working on changing the camouflage face make-up that American soldiers wear for warfare. The Department of Defense wanted to find something similar to a sunblock for soldiers to use on their face that would protect them from the heat wave in road-side bomb blasts. When exposed to heat, the new substance protects the skin from heat for 15 seconds. The paint also includes a non-flammable form of DEET which repels insects.
