It all started over 30 years ago with a unique water-based adhesive developed by Dr. Alfonso DiMino for use in medical applications for facial and breast prosthetics. It was unique because it was non-toxic, non-irritating and completely water-based. But when dry, it gave an absolutely water proof, strong bond to all skin surfaces. These attributes were well suited for medical prosthetic applications. They were also perfectly suited for the demanding needs of the special effects make-up artist.

World renowned make-up pioneer Dick Smith began using this new adhesive technology and soon found its way into widespread use throughout the professional make-up industry.
Since then, Pros-Aide®, a division of ADM Tronics®, has developed a line of Pros-Aide® adhesive products and complementary products for use in special effects and other areas of professional make-up. Pros-Aide® products have been used in motion pictures as well as stage and TV.

Today, Pros-Aide® products remain the industry standard for make-up professionals throughout the world.
