Defending skin against environmental and aging-related damage
Irina Miller, Ph.D., CEO
"Skin is the biggest organ of the body, which means skin health is critical."
Skin cancer incidence is rising 6% per year in all genders and ethnicities.

The cosmetic effects of ageing on skin and the development of skin cancers result from multiple changes in three types of skin cells (fibroblasts, keratinocytes, melanocytes) and degeneration of extracellular components (collagen, elastin). These changes are accelerated by toxic chemicals that are produced in skin when it is exposed to all wavelengths of sunlight, all common atmospheric pollutants, and tobacco smoke.

Kutanios produces a peptide-based ingredient that prevents skin damage from aging and sun exposure via topical application. The novel mechanism stops skin cells from degrading the surrounding collagen and promoting inflammation, common causes of sun-damage related aging. Not only does this peptide protect against sun and skin damage, but their ingredient is biodegradable and safe for the environment, unlike common sunblocks.
