Skinalytics was founded in 2017 by Michele Temple-Wong, Irene Wang and Gilberto Acevedo. They recognized that there was very little information for consumers to understand when or why they might have a reaction to a consumer product and how that might be related to their personal genome, microbiome, demographics, lifestyle, and environment. They want to provide a tool that can be a platform to collect this data which might be helpful to consumers and physicians.

Our first prototype shown in the video below will be available on the Android store at the end of the summer.
