At iSkin, we’ve been innovating our protective case designs since 2002 starting with the original iPod. Back then, we learned that many of our customers wanted an iSkin that was colorless, low profile and allowed the device it was protecting to shine through.
We launched our very first Claro for the iPod back in 2005. It was an instant hit. Everyone loved the dual-layered design that featured a soft silicone inner layer fortified by a scratch resistant, ultra-clear poly-carbonate exterior layer.
Fast forward to today and the iSkin Claro is still a major part of the iSkin product line up. We’ve listened to customer feedback over the years and made improvements on what we think is the best clear case on the market, the Claro.
Customers voiced their opinions that hard cases were not ideal. They scratch, crack and did little to protect the device directly. So it made sense to create a product that was ultra-transparent, but protective like a soft case, the best of both worlds.
First off, the Claro is made with non-toxic additives (no BPA's, Phalates or Lead) encapsulated in a premium thermoplastic. This material is great and was introduced to the iPhone case market by iSkin in 2007 with the advent of our first iSkin Solo. The Claro uses a premium, thermoplastic that is soft and shock absorbing. Unlike hard poly-carbonate cases, the Claro doesn't crack or break when dropped on a hard surface. Instead it absorbs drops and cushions the iPhone inside.
