Our history

A group of scientists taking samples in Antartica

Exploring the Icy Depths: A UV-Resistant Discovery

Venturing into the heart of Antarctica, our team discovered a rare breed of microorganisms, equipped with enzymes able to fight potent UV radiation. We decoded their unique genetic profiles, and from the vast array, we curated and selected organisms with unparalleled repair capabilities.

Broadening the Horizon of UV DNA Repair Solutions

We knew that UV radiation inflicts two major types of direct damage to DNA. While current solutions address only one, our breakthrough dives deeper, targeting the often overlooked. We carefully selected features that allowed us further scalability in our solutions, setting a new standard in UV damage repair.

Reinventing Enzyme Production

Embracing state-of-the-art recombinant techniques, we achieved unmatched efficiency and scalability in enzyme production — a significant leap in addressing UV DNA damage. Our innovations underwent their first successful validation in in-vitro DNA repair assays. This period was not just about pioneering research, but also about setting a new industry standard with tangible advantages and a patent application.

Advancing Skin Science with Proven Technology

Building on our recombinant enzyme milestones, we've transitioned from in-vitro validations to real-world implications. We've now ventured beyond surface-level efficacy. Our enzymes are engineered to penetrate deep, accessing the very core of human skin cells – even the nucleus, retaining full activity. Successfully tested in human keratinocytes and melanocytes, our technology is not just redefining skin science; it's demonstrating its unmatched depth and precision in real-world scenarios.
