THERE'S MORE TO YOUR SKIN

How your skin responds to skin care products (such as when a reaction or sensitivity develops) may depend on the bacteria, fungi, and viruses and their environment on your skin, also known as the skin microbiome.

Skinalytics wants to make skin care selection safer and easier and to truly personalize it by incorporating your skin properties, product reaction histories, and skin microbiome information in our skin care product selection algorithm.

Your skin microbiome can affect your skin's response to skin care products. Let Skin Care IQ help you understand these reactions.
